Eleven remarkable productions. Ten countries. And an exciting supporting programme: this is what awaits you at the Our Stage – 4th European Bürgerbühne Festival in Dresden (Germany). The festival, organised in cooperation with the European Theatre Convention, will present the format of "Bürgerbühne" - literally translated as "citizen's scene", which is managed in the same way as an internal professional production, but involves non-professional actors.
The full programme is now available online and will present:
- The Fan-Man or How to Dress an Elephant
by Efthymiou / Greece
by Mohamed El Khatib & Collectif Zirlib / France
- A Doll's House
by Fix&Foxy / Denmark
- The Ballad of the Apathetic Son and His Narcissic Mother
by 21Common / Scotland
- Every Body Electric
by Doris Uhlich / Austria
by Lifeboat Unit – STEREO AKT / Hungary
- Pending Vote
by Roger Bernat/FFF / Spain
by Constanza Macras/DorkyPark / South Africa
- Long Live Regina!
by Self-Theatre / Hungary
by Seppe Baeyens/Ultima Bez / Belgium
- Der Hamiltoncomplex
by Lies Pauwels/Schauspiel Bochum / Germany
The festival will also offer a supporting programme where European artists, theatre directors and academics from a wide range of disciplines will explore artistic, social and political issues relating to participatory theatre in panel discussions, lectures, workshops and discussions.
And, last but not least, the festival ends with the ETC's International Theatre Conference from 23 to 26 May, attended by representatives of our member theatres and artists from all over Europe.
