For the fourth year in a row, the European Theatre Convention together with Staatstheater Braunschweig and Eastern European partners enhanced a fruitful collaboration with Ukrainian theatres and artists in 2017.

As a result of the previous programmes and a successful continuation of cultural and artistic exchange, the 2017 edition of the project "Theatre is Dialogue - Dialogue of Cultures: European networking with Eastern European theatres" was kicked off with the presentation of the production End of Imitation 2.0 at festivals and theatres in Heidelberg, Karlsruhe and Braunschweig (Germany).

Furthermore, the 2017 programme featured several events aiming to enable an open cultural dialogue troughout theatre with and in Ukraine, to open new perspectives and foster professional artistic exchange amongst young Ukrainian and Eastern European theatre makers.
