The short symposium brings together perspectives on current trends and production venues in international, experimental, free music theatre. Where do the works that move beyond genres, concert or opera, music or theatre point?
The Netzwerk Freies Musiktheater was founded in 2021 and sees itself as an association of interests of music theatre creators from the independent scene in Germany. In 2022, network meetings were held in Berlin, Cologne and Hamburg, which primarily focused on the artists’ self-understanding. In Dresden, the focus is on the exchange between the institutions. In the medium term, the network would like to strengthen the connections between institutions and producers and contribute to new collaborations and a higher guest performance quota.
