The Gorki Theater focuses on conflicts of a diverse society with focus on themes like migration, queerness, refuge, exile, and feminism. They ask: “What is the place of theatre in a society in transition? What work should theatre artists, faced with a permanent crisis in economy and politics, produce to reflect the severe social and cultural conflicts in our societies on the stage?” Join us to learn more about the unique and groundbreaking vision of one of the important theatres of the City of Berlin. With Shermin Langhoff, Jens Hillje, Christopher-Fares Köhler, and Frank Hentschker.

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presents World Voices: International Play Festival 2019: play readings with some of the most significant theatre artists from Germany, all connected to the Gorki Theater in Berlin—a safe haven for immigrant, refugee and international theatre artists in Europe.

The International Play Festival generates a conversation on art, politics, dreams, war, and philosophy, meant to give American audiences a rich awareness of the greater global dialogue.
