About us
What is theatre? What could theatre be, if it cannot just be what it currently is? And how is an ever-changing theatre to be conceived of and experimented with? The Institute of Applied Theatre Studies at the Justus-Liebig-University Gießen conceives of its teaching and research as an attempt to always challenge the supposedly given definitions and conceptions of theatre. It seeks to continuously question theatre, to consider it negotiable and to reconceptualize theatre by means of risky and necessarily contingent models.
