In just three months, the first edition of the MONOLOGFESTIVAL was conceived and realized at TD Berlin back in 2007. We were curious about what happens when different solo pieces are staged back-to-back. And because everybody loved it so much, we’ve hosted the festival every year since - building new and unexpected bridges from the I to the We!
Two curators initiate up to ten new solo theater productions for every edition. These productions are all conceptualized specifically for the biannual festival, connected by a common political theme. The focus lies on societal change and the influence of individuals within groups. Extraordinary premieres emerge, by renowned theater makers and collectives, as well as some newcomers. The co-production festival explores the potential of monological positioning in a polyphony of artistic disciplines and styles.
