When we chose this motto for 2021, we never imagined that we would hit the nerve of the times in such a way. Taking a certain attitude is the personal challenge of the present! The pandemic forced us to cancel the 36th Theatre Days at the Lake Constance: For the first time in the more than 30 years history of the festival we had to pause for two years. And in order not to risk failure a third time, we are changing the place and time of the festival.
The 37th Theatertage am See will take place from June 20th- 26th at the Kulturhaus Caserne, Fallenbrunnen 17 in Friedrichshafen.
This is just 500m away from our usual location. In this venue there are at least 4 stages available for us, including an open air stage. Unfortunately there are no workshop rooms.
We are looking forward to see many amazing theatre performances. The motto remains the same: We are challenged more than ever to show attitude.
Doubts, uncertainty, a threat to social cohesion are strongly felt - previously believed certainties and nowadays- certainties are shaken.
"Where do I stand?"
"Where do you stand?"
"How do we position ourselves?"
"With or against each other?"
But we also experience that culture is alive, how it develops new approaches to play with , rehearsal work and presentation formats. It is impossible to imagine our existence without theatre!
We are curious which aesthetic answers and artistic formats the amateur theatre will find in/through/because of/for and to this crisis.
Please apply with your theatrical approach to “Attitude”.
We welcome all performing arts disciplines: intergenerational, transcultural, inclusive and international.
Application deadline is March 15th , 2022
