What is an Ensemble Theatre?
The principle of an ensemble theatre is deeply rooted in the local theatre landscape. But how do we define the concept in the variety of forms of drama production that exist today? How much freedom or commitment do art, institutions and audiences need? A discussion with Philipp Harpain (Grips Theater), Ulrich Khuon (Deutsches Theater), Shermin Langhoff (Gorki Theater), Volker Metzler (Theater an der Parkaue), Thomas Ostermeier (Schaubühne), Marietta Piekenbrock (Volksbühne), Oliver Reese (Berliner Ensemble) and Annemie Vanackere (HAU Hebbel am Ufer). Moderation: Nele Hertling, Ulrich Seidler
