Schauspielhaus Graz

Austria / Graz

Schauspielhaus Graz is the biggest theatre in Styria (Austria) and consists of 3 different stages: HAUS EINS, HAUS ZWEI and HAUS DREI. HAUS EINS is a traditional stage with a capacity of 550 seats, whereas HAUS ZWEI and HAUS DREI are smaller studio stages with capacities of 100 and 50-60 seats.

When Iris Laufenberg became the Artistic Director in 2015/2016, she put the focus on modern interpretations of classical drama and comedy as well as a wide range of contemporary drama (as a result in 2016 the production Lupus in fabula got invited to the German Author Festival in Berlin as well as NachSpielPreis in Heidelberg). Furthermore, under her leadership the theatre received four nominations for the Austrian Nestroy-Theaterpreis (of which it won two) and became a member of the European Theatre Convention (ETC).
