ITI yearbook

At the beginning of 2014 the first edition of the ITI yearbook, which replaces the until then prevailing "Impuls" magazine, was published.


Until 2012 Impulse was issued twice a year (in German and English). Its editorial concept aimed at documenting decisions of cultural and educational policy and important theatre news, allowing international theatre persons to express themselves in interviews and examining central topics of the international theatre scene.

Publication series

ITI Germany has published a series of books and conference documentations, mostly German, between 1982 and 1994 which can be found at our public library or digitally at our  archive section.

Additionally, it includes essays on experimental musical theatre, and different cultural policies for independent theatre scenes in a range of European countries.
