1. Conception of the festival

The euro-scene Leipzig will take place from 08. to 13. November 2011 for the 21st time. Under the motto »Tonstörung« (»Sound disturbance«) the festival of contemporary European theatre devotes thematically to the sound of music as well as to the tones within social and interpersonal structures and in aesthetic forms. The festival will show 12 guest plays from 12 countries in 25 performances and 10 venues. Among them are six German premières. Next to it the popular competition »Das beste deutsche Tanzsolo« (»Best German dance solo«) will take place for the 10th time.

The carte blanche – the selection of a guest performance – was performed by the renowned choreographer Josef Nadj, head of the Centre chorégraphique national d'Orléans. He chose the performance »E.I.O.« by the three choreographers Dragana Bulut, Belgrade, Maria Baroncea & Eduard Gabia, Bucharest, and he will also show his own production »Sho-bo-gen-zo«.

We would like to invite you cordially to the festival. Upon request the programme will be sent to you free of charge.
