In their mission statement, the international theatre festival in Munich explain: “SPIELART, however, also always concentrates on posing questions about theater itself as an art form, and on consistently re-exploring or re-establishing theater with approaches from the fringes. Important accents of the festival’s platform are also its entrenchment in the city’s cultural life and the dialogue between the city’s artistic and institutional energies.”
So the festival links unusual, pioneering forms of performative expression of international theatre artists to its audience in Germany’s third largest metropolis, Munich. This year in November, artistic teams will come from China, South Africa, Argentina, Malaysia, Korea, the Philippines, Belgium, Scottland, the U.S.A., the Lebanon, Kenia, and many other countries. Far beyond an also international, European horizon, the selection of productions is truly intercontinental.
