Theatertreffen 2017: Brief Impressions
The neighbors of the Berliner Festspiele have been complaining. If you gathered in the front garden of the theatre complex at night too long after a performance of Theatertreffen, a trio of dapper ushers with earpieces would approach you. They’d ask you to continue the conversation inside, behind the two-story glass façade, back in the more private garden perhaps, somewhere closer to a bartender and cash register, far from the open maze of plywood benches that hosted pre-show encounters among audiences for two weeks.
