Held each year in July and August, the Tirol Regional Theater Festival Telfs is a major contribution to the vibrant social and cultural life of Tirol. In 2017, the festival revolves around the theme of life and death.
Established in 1981, the Telfs Theater Festival is an annual event that brings together artists, theater-makers and audiences from Tirol and around the world. The critically acclaimed festival provides a platform to showcase the best of Tirolean theater by presenting contemporary drama by local theater artists alongside work by exciting, emerging theater-makers.
In its 36th year, the Telfs Theater Festival revolves around the theme of life and death. Kurt Wilhelm’s folk play “Der Brandner Kaspar und das ewig’ Leben” revolves around this theme. Death is as well an important topic in Anders Lustgarten’s “Lampedusa”. Renowned Tirolean playwright Felix Mitterer brings Franz Kafka’s “Ein Bericht für eine Akademie” to the stage – as producer and as actor.
