The full stop for the week-long drama festival is provided by one of the most respected German theatres - the Dresden State Theatre with its most successful staging of Divided Heaven directed by the young star of German theater Tillman Kohler.
Not only due to the celebrations that are associated with the year 2014 on the two sides of the wall between Eastern and Western Europe, not only because of the bitter historical experience of the wall, but particularly for its sensitive perception of contemporary social life, the theme of this year's festival is The Wall.
