Contemporary Theatre in Focus

Staatsschauspiel Dresden

Season 2018-2019

Contemporary theatre is one of the emphases of the new season at Staatsschauspiel Dresden. Five commissioned plays – such as Odyssee by Roland Schimmelpfennig – as well as 12 world premieres (out of 25 premieres in total) show a wide range of perspectives on our societal and political reality. The plays are staged by renowned as well as young directors like Volker Lösch, Sebastian Hartmann, Arpad Schilling or Data Tavadze.

“In a time of rootlessness, the term ‘home’ has to be reinvented.”
— Roland Schimmelpfennig, Odyssee
