Szenenwechsel (Change of Scene) is a joint programme of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the International Theatre Institute (German Centre) which between 2013 and 2018 supported nearly 60 internatonal collaboration projects in the performing arts.
The societal changes of the past few years and recent revolutions have had a significant impact on the countries of Eastern Europe and North Africa. This is especially apparent in view of contemporary theatre. Being part of the controversy on the social and political upheavals of the past and present new aesthetics are being developed and theatre discourses pushed.
The funding programme aims to stimulate and establish lasting international partnerships between two countries. The last call closed on Feb. 15th 2018. For the conclusion of the programme the International Theatre Institute organised the network meeting and festival XCHANGES from May 16 to 18 2019 in kampnagel, Hamburg.
