In the 2019/2020 season, Staatsschauspiel Dresden will focus on a topic that determines the present in eastern Germany like hardly any other: the reunification. Different perspectives in Germany and Europe still exist even after the fall of the Berlin wall: thoughts about perceived inequities, mortification and abasement are still in the minds of people. A reappraisal of the "Wende" (“turnround”) in 1989 is very important for all German citizens.
Thirty years after German reunification, the different perspectives on this drastic moment of change in Germany and Europe have had a significant influence on the repertoire of the Staatsschauspiel Dresden theatre. They continue to pursue their commitment and passion for vibrant contemporary theatre. Ten of the 24 premieres next season will be world premieres, supplemented by the theme week “30 Years of Peaceful Revolution”.
