Although Germany and France share a geographic border, they couldn't be further apart in terms of their theatre aesthetics. An annual German-French playwright partnership and joint theatre performances will hopefully bring them closer together. In the first year, author Claudius Lünstedt and his French colleague Claire Rengarde will team up, in the second year Pamela Dürr and Silvain Levey. Together they will develop a theatre night to be shown at both theatres. The playwrights will be allowed to determine the setting and type of performance for their play, as well as put together their own creative team.
