German Centre of the International Theatre Institute (ITI)


The ITI is a global theatre network under the umbrella of the UNESCO which for over fifty years has promoted the meeting and sharing of ideas of theatre people and a better intercultural understanding through the stage. The German ITI centre pursues four core aims and activities:

  • circulating information to and from national centres about developments in the different national theatre landscapes
  • organising exchanges between theatre people (study trips, working visits, commissioned stagings)
  • organising international theatre projects (publications, symposia, workshops) and the festival THEATER DER WELT ('Theatre of the World') and the PLATTFORM GEGENWARTSTHEATER ('Platform Contemporary Theatre')
  • advising German cultural policy-makers on questions of international co-operation in the field of the performing arts
