+++SCHÖNE AUSSICHT/BRIGHT VIEW 2020 POSTPONED - HOPING TO SEE YOU IN 2021+++


Due to the current situation and heavy hearted we have to postpone our festival. Not knowing if international artists might be allowed to travel in June we can't organise an international theatrefestival this year. And knowing that schools are not allowed to do any extracurricular activities - for whom are we doing this festival? What kind of atmosphere would we create without ususally many children, youth and international theatremakers?

This is why we try to postpone Schöne Aussicht 2020 to 6th to 13th of June 2021! We're looking forward to welcome all of you healthy and safe in 2021!

Bright View


International and Regional Theatre Festival

Every two years JES hosts the festival Bright View: a showcase of ground-breaking international theatre for young audiences in Stuttgart as well as the platform for the regional theatres working in this field to share their work and develop their artistic and communicatory practise. Workshops and discussions for artists as well as interested citizens of Stuttgart are an essential part of the week of networking and development. The festival programme is completed with the award ceremony for the Youth Theatre Award (Jugendtheaterpreis Baden-Württemberg) and glittering celebrations. 

Quest for identities 

Looking at the diversity of forms and content represented at this edition, one subject stands out: many of the projects question the artist’s or young person’s identity. They investigate the reactions of humans to the accelerating processes that change the world and society we live in. How do climate change and social erosion, sprawling populism and experiences of flight, transforming gender images and diverging challenges influence the life of young people today?
