6:30pm Panel

Free & open to public. First come, first served

Join Frank Hentschker in conversation with the Gorki Theater’s Christopher-Fares Köhler (Artistic Consultant).

The Gorki Theater focuses on conflicts of a diverse society with attention to themes like migration, queerness, refuge, exile, and feminism. They ask: “What is the place of theatre in a society in transition? What work should theatre artists, faced with a permanent crisis in economy and politics, produce to reflect the severe social and cultural conflicts in our societies on the stage?” Join us to learn more about the unique and groundbreaking vision of one of the important theatres of the City of Berlin.
