After the threat situation from the corona virus has worsened considerably in recent days, the Senate Cultural Administration today decided to ban performances in the large halls of Berlin's theatres from 11 March to 19 April as a precautionary measure. It is therefore with a heavy heart that the Schaubühne has decided to cancel this year's Festival Internationale Neue Dramatik (FIND 2020).
A festival like FIND thrives on the productions that are shown, as well as on the encounters and exchanges between the audience and the artists, the international guest performance groups among themselves, and the opportunity to immerse oneself in new theatre experiences for ten days. The large number of guests from many countries of the world and the tight FIND schedule regularly result in more than 1,000 people staying at the Schaubühne. Following the instructions of the cultural administration on how to deal with the corona virus, we cannot, in the current situation, be responsible for ignoring the danger. Therefore, there is unfortunately no alternative to a cancellation.
All events in the festival period from March 11th to 22nd are cancelled except for the premiere and follow-up performances of "The Apes". Further information about schedule changes from 23 March onwards will follow shortly.
Visitors have the possibility to return tickets for the cancelled festival events. Please direct any requests for refunds or changes in bookings to our box office on 030 890023 or email@example.com.
