The festival organiser is T-Werk, a theatre association with its own theatre venue on the site of the Schiffbauergasse cultural centre in Potsdam. Music theatre, acting, mask and figure theatre belong to its programme together with concerts, readings and workshops. T-Werk’s repertoire is conceived so that it span generations.
Besides performances of its own productions, T-Werk offers other independent theatre groups the possibility to rehearse and present their work. Regular reciprocal guest productions on both a national and international level provide artistic stimulus and support the exchange between countries and states.Some outstanding components of T-Werk’s programme are its annual festivals and events. Among these are UNIDRAM, the Lange Nacht der Freien Theater (Long Night of Independent Theatre), the Schirrhofnächte festival, which was initiated in 2014, and the WhatsArt workshop week.
