Bolat Atabayev is a major theatre figure in Kazakhstan. For over thirty years, the co-founder of the German Theatre in Almaty has trod an undaunted and perilous path within the Kazakh cultural landscape. With the Goethe Medal, the Goethe-Institut not only recognizes his merits for German-Kazakh theatre relations, but also honours Bolat Atabayev as a courageous fighter for democratic structures.
