The Festival
of Theatre
for Young
21. – 26.
April 2023


We would like to thank you for six festival days full of inspiring theatre experiences with our guest performances, for the many and above all varied conversations, for encounters, for laughing, thinking, arguing, being silent and dancing together. It was a pleasure for us!

In the next few days you will find our survey about the festival, a photo gallery and the dates for the next submissions for the 2025 festival here on the website!


Teaser Inszenierungen von Johanna Benz, Sara Bock und Sandra Barth

Some of you were able to admire them at our festival opening: Graphic recording artist Johanna Benz, together with the animation team Sara Bock and Sandra Barth, expressed their own artistic perspective on the ten invited productions in short and fine films. Enjoy!

In einer geschwungenen Landschaft gehen zwei Schauspielende umher, die in Tierkostümen stecken. Im Vordergrund sieht man eine kleine Stadtlandschaft aus Pappe. Das Licht ist Pink und violett. Die Luft ist rauchig, der Wald brennt. Darüber scheint der Mond.

Who is the representation for young perspectives?

10 October 2022
Originally, we were just an outraged youth editorial team. After our outcry about the AUGENBLICK MAL!2021 led to us being integrated into the festival structures at the request of the conceptual team and the management, we also first had to find out who we wanted to be within these structures. Are we the ones who are annoying, the ones who co-curate, the ones who make their own programme?

The nominated productions for AUGENBLICK MAL! 2023

16 September 2022
What a season 2020/21! Many theatres had to stay closed for a long time due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, pre-productions were made. In many places, plays were performed digitally or open air. Indoor "premieres" without young audiences were the rule. Then, towards the end of the season: redemption. Finally, the theatres were allowed to invite young people back into their rooms and halls, even if the number of visitors was significantly reduced.

30 years of children's theater festival for adults

1 May 2021
