To kick things off in the first issue, we look at the role of theatre festivals with a view to their narratives, their diversity and strategies of curating and look forward to contributions from Dr. Lisa Gaupp and Dr. Nicola Scherer. Nora Amin reports on her experiences as a curator in the context of decolonisation processes. In addition, Yvonne Büdenhölzer and Thomas Engel talk about the impact of the pandemic on transnational exchange and the challenges for the ITI network. More articles will follow by the end January, including an interview with Chiaki Soma and Kyoko Iwaki, the curators of the Festival Theater der Welt 2023 in Frankfurt am Main and Offenbach.
