From June 3rd to June 6th 2021, UWE – DIE FESTIVAL will take place at the
Theaterakademie August Everding in Munich, Germany, for the fourth time.
UWE makes encounter, exchange and experiment possible. UWE stands for
emancipation from role assignments, from genre categories, from traditional
theatre organisations, from the elitist ivory tower, from the virtual space, from
isolation. UWE is diverse.
UWE serves as an international networking platform for young, practical works
created in student contexts. UWE invites you to think beyond boundaries and
genres, categories and stereotypes and is looking forward to your productions –
be they analogue or digital.
UWE – DIE FESTIVAL lives through international exchange. It is carried by us, a
team of students from the Theaterakademie, and stimulated by YOU with artistic
impulses and contents!

Who can participate?
We invite plays and other artistic works that were created by students in theatre
training or at university in all of Europe. We welcome all possible genres of
performing arts. Especially, we are looking for works that can be realized under
current pandemic rules. Small teams are preferred!

What do we offer?
 The possibility to show your works to other students on professionally
equipped stages
 A diverse accompanying programme with workshops, discussions and
much more
 Sleeping accomodation in Munich for everyone who does not have
