Festival International New Drama 2015
17 to 26 April 2015

10 days, 11 countries, 11 directors: With the 15th Festival of International New Drama from 17 to 26 April the Schaubühne presented new productions and texts by dramatists from around the world. The festival has repeatedly reinvented itself to achieve its goal of presenting our audience with first-time experiences of new productions, texts and performances by internationally renowned theatre makers. In 2015, we were showing new theatre from Argentina, Belgium, Chile, France/Canada, Great Britain, Israel, Spain, Switzerland and the USA as well as a world premiere from the Schaubühne itself. The invited productions assessed the current political and social state of the world via the means of theatre. They focus upon the American middle-class, jihadism, the plight of refugees, the dubious practices of Western intelligence agencies, the overthrow of dictatorships and questions about alternative possibilities of participation in political decision making. They used the stage to gauge the relationship of the individual to world affairs and investigate how history can suddenly burst into private lives.

With a total of 31 shows, more than 5,500 spectators and a ticket sales average of 83% , F.I.N.D. 2015 has been one of the most successful festivals in its 15-year history.
