4 + 1 – young authors‘ meeting 2024

Thursday 9th May to Saturday 11th May 2024

Events are hybrid or at Schauspiel Leipzig:

“Every two years, Schauspiel Leipzig opens its gates for emerging dramatists and their work. During the three days of 4+1, the Leipzig stage is all about unheard texts, about their authors and their production methods. Six renowned German-language writing academies have been invited to send four students each to Leipzig with an original text. “

“The audience will be introduced to new voices of new drama in public readings, followed by talks with the participating artists. It is an exciting opportunity to spot different styles and developments! Once again, 4+1 will be accessible in the tried and tested hybrid format: Join us here in our auditorium and ask your questions in direct conversation with the authors and the company after the presentation. Or listen to the readings from the comfort of your own home via your screen and send us your messages via your smart phone.”
