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.
The translations of programme descriptions into English will be provided by Bochert Translations.

This year’s selection of production invited to the UNIDRAM theatre festival in Potsdam includes Kalle Nio and the WHS ensemble from Finland. They present their production CUTTING EDGE. In a kind of stage magic show, or physical theatre, the three performers Inês Campos, Vera Selene Tegelman and Jukka Tarvainen·deal with violent kinds of dying. Executions, beheadings, people cut in two, severed heads – all glossy, no splatter, even funny.
The show provides German supertitles. The translation of the titles has been accomplished by Bochert Translations.
