People are making theatre.
They do this for certain reasons, for themselves and for the others.

People are making theatre.
They find their special ways to do this, depending on their personal places, stories, biographies, experiences, wishes and desires.

People are making theatre.
They do this in different ways. That means a variety of aspects and forms, a variety of reasons. The “Göppinger Theatertage” is a festival for different forms of theatre. And that makes our festivals so fascinating.

We meet in Göppigen to experience the interaction between script, artistic direction, stage production and the audience. How does your play work, how does it differ from others and what message does it bring across? The “Göppinger Theatertage” is a kind of theatre conference that covers these issues.

Ten to twelve groups will be our guests from November 22 to 26 this year (2017), presenting their latest productions. We watch all the performances and talk about our observations, feelings and experiences evoked by your plays. That’s why it’s so important to be present for the whole duration of the theatre festival.

We would like to invite you to apply for the “47th Göppinger Theatertage“! You can do so by sending information about your group and a detailed documentation of a current production. Or, if you are currently working on a production that will be performed after the closing date for applications, you can send us your company’s first reflections and concept of the unfinished play. If you are applying for the first time, please enter information of earlier productions as well.
Guests that wish to join the festival as observers are always welcome.

The joy of live theatre - on and off the stage - and the different forms of theater art happening right in front of us make our festival so special and magical. We look forward to spending four days in Göppingen filled with concentrated passion for theatre! Passion for your own individual theatre and passion for other people’s theatre contributions.

Theatre is, what we make of it.

With kind regards
Ralf Rummel, Uwe Wittmann
