Titled never again. art/talks/theory, this year’s edition of the DISKURS-Festival will take place in Gießen from the 7th to the 10th of November.

The international festival has been organised for the last 34 years on a voluntary basis by students of the Institute of Applied Theatre Studies, and is independently operated by the Kunstrasen giessen e.V. In addition to theatre productions and performative works, the festival includes installations, films, lectures and talks, offering artists, scientists, theoreticians and audiences the opportunity to engage in lively debates within various discussion formats. The focus is on experimental works that give new impulses to artistic research, both on an aesthetic and on a contentual level.

Opening will happen on the 7th November at 4pm in Georg Büchner Saal, Bismarckstr. 37
