GRIMMLESS, selected to represent Italy in the next edition of the Festival International New Plays from Europe, will be performed in Wiesbaden (Germany) in June 2012. Theatre Biennale New Plays from Europe/Neue Stucke Aus Europa is the only large-scale international festival dedicated exclusively to productions of contemporary plays in their original languages. They are presented with a simultaneous translation into German. The focus is on authors and their texts. The festival program ideally aims to provide a reflection of the most pressing topics that Europe is faced with: conflicting national characteristics and idiosyncrasies, diverse interpretations of European identity as well as questions of isolation and self-assertion. Being exposed to different views on familiar occurrences and gaining new perspectives on the concept of European identity ideally lead to an improved understanding of the cultural differences unique to each European country. This festival aspires to function as an impetus and pave the way towards a united, multifaceted and heterogeneous European cultural area – challenging, critical and tolerant. The dates of GRIMMLESS in Wiesbaden are in the SCHEDULE section of the site.
