WIENER WORTSTAETTEN was founded in 2005 by playwright Bernhard Studlar and director Hans Escher as an intercultural playwriting-project. Right from the start, the project focused on the creation of new texts for the stage, as well as dealing with socially important issues and networking between playwrights. Over the years, a variety of scenic projects and productions / premieres of new plays have emerged. Initiatives such as the exile-playwriting-award became a springboard for playwrights such as Ibrahim Amir, Alexandra Pâzgu or Marianna Salzmann. From cross-border cooperations, “Fabulamundi. Playwriting Europe” and “Tour des Textes”, an international network was created that promotes both the exchange between playwrights and the translation of contemporary drama. WIENER WORTSTAETTEN sees itself as an independent, creative research laboratory and text workshop, as a mediator between authors and the theatre business. And last but not least as a place for the independent theatre scene, where new forms of authorship and „classical“ dramatic literature meet each other at eye level. The goal of the project is the long term promotion and support of playwrights. Since 2018, WIENER WORTSTAETTEN have been managed by Martina Knoll and Bernhard Studlar.
