2013 - 3rd edition
For the third time »Fast Forward«, the first European festival for young stage directors in the German-speaking area, takes place at Staatstheater Braunschweig from November 21-24, 2013. The festival presents once a year international newcomers on all stages of the theatre.
Among instructors, experts and theatre professionals, students from various theatre schools are invited to attend the festival and to be actively involved in its supporting programme, which is supported by the European Theatre Convention (ETC)..
»Fast Forward« is supported by an expert jury which will award one of the productions shown at the festival. The winner will get the opportunity to stage a play at the Staatstheater Braunschweig in the following season. The festival collaborates in addition with the ETC in changing cooperations with theatre schools and institutions of performing arts.
The Winner of the 3rd edition of the festival is the belgian stage director Antoine Laubine with his second work "Dehors". The Jury justified the decision by saying "Dehors" is about homelessness and shows the homeless in a social double function simultaniously as a victim and as a warning example.
