The societal changes of the past few years and recent revolutions have had a significant impact on the countries of Eastern Europe and North Africa. This is also apparent in contemporary theatre. Being part of the controversy on the social and political upheavals of the past and present, new aesthetics and theatre discourses were developed.
The funding programme Change of Scene was initiated in order to grant these works a broader audience in the German theatre landscape and to strengthen international exchange. Until now about 50 cooperation projects have been supported.
The last two-year-long funding period starts in Sumer 2018. The projects selected for funding will be announced end of May 2018.
Current information and dates can be found here. In May 2019 an international network meeting and festival will take place in Hamburg.
Change of Scene is a funding programme of the Robert Bosch Stiftung in collaboration with the International Theatre Institute.
