A documentary film and the discussion will take place on September 26 under the series "Theatre Critics" (Deutsches Theater der Gegenwart), contemporary German Theatre organised by the Colombo Theatre Forum.

German contemporary theater
The historical development of the German theatre landscape is in keeping with a theatre criticism shaped by literature. Are theatre critics as Lessing believed, representatives of the audience? Do they conduct themselves as self-appointed cultural politicians or as trend oriented chroniclers of subsidized theatre events? And who criticizes the critics? In a dialogue between authors, theatre professionals and critics, presented through film clips, a self-critical and humorous portrait of German theatre criticism emerges.
