Tankred Dorst gestorben - Ein Nachruf von Manfred Beilharz

Tankred Dorst (Foto: Martin Kaufhold)

Tankred Dorst ist tot. Der Autor, Dramatiker, Büchner-Preisträger, Träger des ITI- und Faust-Preises starb am 01.06.2017.

Seine Leistung als Dramatiker, der an vielen Theatern im In- und Ausland gespielt wird und wurde, ist enorm. Seine Stücke lassen sich in keine gemeinsame Kategorie einordnen. Immer wieder hat Tankred Dorst neu angefangen, Welten für die Bühne zu entwickeln (später mit seiner Frau Ursula Ehler zusammen): parabelhaft, poetisch, skurril, politisch, welthaltig. Seine Neugier auf Außenseiter, auf Leute, die nicht der üblichen Norm entsprechen, war unstillbar. Stücke wie „Korbes“, „Herr Paul“, „Toller“ und „Eiszeit“ (ein Stück über den politischen Altersstarrsinn Knut Hamsuns) sowie sein großartiger Film „Eisenhans“ zeugen davon.  weiterlesen

A multitude of workshops, presentations, keynote speeches and performances are enriching the Congress for all participants. Part of the Congress is the International Dance Symposium, intended to strengthen dance in ITI. An Open Space is dedicated to the artistic nature of ITI.

All the Congress partners are working together to make this event a most memorable event (Tobias Biancone, Director General ITI).

German ITI Prize 2017 awarded to Yael Ronen

"In her pieces, Yael Ronen treads,” as Joachim Lux, president of the German centre, stated, “the mined territory of intercultural conflicts. And how! Her works are playful, unselfconscious, light, non-ideological, never overly moral nor politically correct. This rarely exists in German theatre. And that in the context of an issue in which you can generally only make mistakes? With an unerring directness and humour, Yael Ronen is only interested in life itself, in all its contradictions and in nothing else – and in this way, she performs her way into the audience’s heart.” more
