The Planning Of The Festival

The premiere festival is being run, as it was in previous years, by directors Dorothea Schroeder and Nina Gühlstorff. They're a true team: Both of them studied at the Bavarian Theatre Academy until 2001 and then in conclusion completed a semester abroad at the Moskau Theatre Institute GITIS, and both are familiar with Eastern Europe.

Dorothea Schroeder was born in North Rhine-Westphalian Mettmann in 1974 and worked for two years at a Croatian refugee camp after her Abitur. She then experimented in Dramatic and Slavic Studies in Erlangen before studying stage direction. In 2002 she stage produced "Zemlija Prostor (Raumland)" at the cultural centre of the University of Belgrad (AKUD Branko Krsmanovic), in which four women from former Yugoslavia reflect on what had happened to their country in the 90ies.

Nina Gühlstorff, who was born in Schleswig-Holstein’s Ratzeburg in 1977, spent a year in Poland before she went to the Bavarian Theatre Academy. Together she and Schroeder undertake socio-cultural projects with actors and laymen, such as the city tour "Zu Gast in Mettmann" in 2007. They even host a website together:

The projects for the dancing section of Spieltriebe 3 are still in the process of being planned. They will be supervised by Nanine Linning, who is taking over the management of the dance theatre Osnabrück from season 2009/10. Linning was born in the Netherlands in 1977 and completed her choreography training at the Rotterdam Dance Academy. At the age of 25 she was a choreographer at the Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, which rates as number three in Holland, where she supervised until 2006. Linnings choreographies are multidisciplinary and originate from everyday life, as well as from graphic art, music and architecture.


The Osnabrück Theatre is continuing in cooperation with the Academy of Visual Art in Maastricht with Spieltriebe 3. This means that the equipment for the festival productions is being made by stage-design and costume-director students. This year the following stage designers are taking part: Tobias Flemming, Annabel Fröhlich, Vera Nabbefeld, Lena Sofuoglu, Majorie Voorhuis, Juli Zippel as well as Johanna Fritz (HfbK Hamburg), Teresa Hahn (KHB Weissensee Berlin) and Sebastian Hirn.
The costumes are being designed by: Teresa Hahn, Elif Zeynep Ceren Korkmaz, Dirk Traufelder, Dominique Muszynski, Vera Nabbefeld, Floor Savelkoul, Asia Senen, Annika Kerstin Träger and Dirk Traufelder.

Stage Direction

Artistic Director Holger Schultze commented on the stage directors of the festival: "In Munich there is a separate festival called 'radically young' – at this festival 'radically young' is an added feature." About 50 young stage directors who had caught the attention of Osnabrück’s dramaturges were invited to an interview with the management of the theatre and the ensemble.
