After 10 years of sharing contemporary German drama performed in English with New York, German Theater Abroad will now recreate the German state theatre experience at HERE Arts Center. German state theatres feature numerous plays in rotating repertory with new productions each season, a permanent ensemble of actors, multiple performance spaces and a rich offering of lectures, workshops and discussions, all federally subsidized.
Ingrid Lausund’s Slipped Disc—A Study of the Upright Walk and Roland Schimmelpfennig’s The Woman Before will be featured as the mainstage productions running through the month of May.
Free staged readings of four contemporary German plays will be presented as "NEW GERMAN VOICES 2006," including The Ballad of the Pine Tree Killer by Rebekka Kricheldorf (May 13 at 4pm), The Cold Child by Marius von Mayenburg (May 22 at 8:30pm), and Dog Eats Grass by Meke Hauck (May 15 at8:30pm).
HERE Arts Center is located at 145 Sixth Avenue. For more information, visit www.stadttheaternewyork.com.
