Responsibilities of the Goethe-Institut
Theatre and Dance
The focus is on contemporary drama, spoken theatre, contemporary dance, performance art, children’s and youth theatre, puppet and figure theatre, and new drama.
The promotion of young talent is aimed at young artists living in Germany who would like to make their first international contacts as part of a guest performance abroad.
Residencies and funding of research stays abroad make possible the realisation of internationally oriented project plans.
Scholarships and internships at theatres, festivals and production houses in Germany enable foreign artists to continue their professional development.
Guest performances in Germany by international theatre and dance ensembles from transition countries promote intercultural exchange in cooperation with German festivals, organizers and theatres.
The International Coproduction Fund (IKF) opens up interdisciplinary and collaborative forms of production to artistic experimentation in global contexts.
