A UdK and Theaterdiscounter Berlin coproduction

Berlin 2022

Wildwuchs 2022: Project



Three brand new pieces by four young authors presented as a mini festival in workshop form in one evening - that's WILDWUCHS. Played by the current acting graduates of the UdK and staged by three experienced directors, the scenic arrangements offer an exclusive insight into the texts of the latest generation of authors in John von Düffels' Scenic Writing course.

This young talent festival is taking place at TD Berlin for the third time. First in February in this concentrated form of workshop staging: three pieces in short form in a row on one evening. For the first time this year, one of the works will be further developed and reappear full-length in the TD Berlin program at the beginning of May.
