INTERNATIONAL THEATER LETTERS
In collaboration with the popular theatre critics website nachtkritik.de we invited writers from all over the world to tell us how the covid-19 pandemic influenced the theatre in their country. How did people, who work in theatre, deal with the situation? To what extent did the government support the arts? What kind of new visions emerged from the crisis? And what are their hopes for the performing arts and everyone involved going forward? These are only some of the questions they try to answer for us in the following texts.
