More information about the festival

As always, the work meeting of the Baden-Württemberg Theatre for Young Audiences takes place parallel to the international festival. On the basis of eight productions, theatre producers will exchange ideas about artistic working methods and content-related topics. This year we will examine the effects of interdisciplinary concepts on accessibility and aesthetic practice.

In the middle of the week, the Baden-Württemberg Youth Theatre Prize will be awarded at BRIGHT VIEW. This year the award goes to the French author Gwendoline Soublin and her translator Corinna Popp for the play “Fiesta”. Clara Leinemann will receive the emerging artist award , and Viola Rohner and Junges Theater Konstanz will receive a project grant.

At the end of the week, a networking meeting of the theatres’ youth members will take place, where young people can discuss their wishes and opportunities for co-determination at their various theatres.

For 8 days, JES will a buzzing festival centre with numerous meeting places, opportunities for discussion and places to relax. From here, the festival will shine into the city, with performances in the most beautiful partner venues FITZ!, Rampe and tri-Bühne as well as open-air performances at various locations in the city.

Come join us! Visit the theatre with your friends, colleagues, with your class, your parents, grandparents or on your own. Stay in the festival centre for a while before or afterwards and have inspiring conversations, e.g. with the festival philosophers or the New Generation participants, the JES staff or our guests

We look forward to seeing you!
