Dramaturgin

Dramaturg is actually not one profession - rather, there are at least ten at once. The term comes from the Greek and means "playmaker". Originally, this was only responsible for selecting and editing dramatic texts.

Today, however, head dramaturge Andrea Koschwitz has a lot more to do: she selects plays, rewrites texts, supervises productions, tracks down young authors and current topics, collects background information, designs programme booklets, organises audience discussions, develops season concepts and much more. A dramaturge must therefore be a real multi-tasking talent with a devotion to literature, art and theatre: from the colour of the programme booklet to the contemporary interpretation of old play texts - he is asked for everything. In this way, he helps to sharpen the artistic profile of a production and the theatre. The dramaturge is also allowed to do something that not everyone is allowed to do: criticise the director!
