At the beginning of the 2018/2019 season, Schauspiel Stuttgart established a European ensemble together with Nowy Teatr of Warsaw, Zagreb Youth Theatre, and associate partner the National Theater of Greece. Within the firm structures of state theater, the Europe Ensemble will receive ample time and space to be able to establish itself as an independent ensemble and make theater together over a two-year period. Each participating theater will produce two pieces and will show both other directorial works as guest performances. Thematically, the productions will focus on questioning how Europe can be re-imagined, and which socio-political ideals the European project could strengthen. Can numerous western societies’ democratic fatigue be tackled artistically? As the European Project currently sinks into crisis, how can it be reinvigorated?

The official cast of the Europe Ensemble has been confirmed. Joining the group will be one actress and one actor each from three partner countries: Tenzin Kolsch and Claudia Korneev from Germany, Tina Orlandini and Adrian Pezdirc from Croatia, and Jaśmina Polak and Jan Sobolewski from Poland. The selection was made by the artistic director of the Europe Ensemble, Oliver Frljić, together with the participating theaters.

The Europe Ensemble’s inaugural project will premiere on 10 April 2019 at Schauspiel Stuttgart’s Kammertheater: "Imaginary Europe" is written and directed by Oliver Frljić.

A collaboration between Schauspiel Stuttgart, the Nowy Teatr, Warsaw, and Zagreb Youth Theatre (zagrebačko kazalište mladih).

Funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
