Heidelberg Market of Plays
From: 2014.04.26 To: 2014.05.05
The "Heidelberger Stückemarkt" is one of the most important festivals in Germany for advancing young dramatic artists. Outstanding premiere performances by young directors are the framework of the heart of the festival, the authors' competition. At this event, nine playwrights present their texts for discussion. An independent jury awards three prizes, while the audience bestows the spectators' prize; overall, the sum of € 23,500 is distributed among young authors. The host country of the 27th "Heidelberger Stückemarkt" is Israel, a nation which, although constantly finding itself in a state of emergency, maintains a very dynamic theatrical and cultural life. The repertoire consists almost exclusively of contemporary pieces relating to existential conflicts.
