WIENER WORTSTAETTEN english
Since season of 2017/2018, the WIENER WORTSTAETTEN have been working as artists in residence in a studio in the Meidling venue. This „asylum“ and the accompanying support with resources became necessary because the financial situation of the project had deteriorated dramatically.
From the new location, the project had since been working on an European network for contemporary drama. The project „Fabulamundi. Playwriting Europe“ had the thematic focus „Beyond Borders“ and connected more than 15 organizations from 9 countries, with the aim of promoting the exchange of 80 playwrights and their texts. Translations, workshops, residencies, readings, and productions are essential parts of this European project, which ran until 2020.
Theatres from Germany, England, France, Italy, Austria, Poland, Romania, Spain and the Czech Republic are involved.
On the 18th and 19th of October 2019, the whole WERK X became a stage for the WORTSTATTNÄCHTE 2019, showing a respresentative mixture of their work.
