As part of the Federal Theatre Prize 2024 on October 2, 2024 at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele

Theaters need freedom in their artistic activities and in the development of their structures. Such freedom arises when they are given the opportunity to be self-determined and autonomous. But what does it mean to be autonomous as a theater? Does self-administration also mean more leeway on a structural level? And would it mean planning an aesthetically daring program without social expectations that go beyond a pure "artistic experience"?

With this symposium, we want to explore the potential of autonomous theater and at the same time identify possible danger spots. Pleasures; that is the pleasure of devoting oneself to the obstinate, ambivalent and unknown - of being artistically autonomous. Politics; this is the challenge of creating legal and political framework conditions in which such autonomous free spaces can emerge, which in case of doubt also resist the grip of authoritarian and reactionary political forces. And both culminate in the question of how a socially committed theater can grow without being reduced to its functionality.

The program schedule and information on the speakers will be published here soon.
