Shakespeare, Kafka & the Brothers Grimm: Held each summer, the Regional Theater Festival Telfs is a major contribution to the vibrant social and cultural life of Tirol. This year, the festival stage will move outdoors.
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.
Under new director Christoph Nix, the 2021 Telfs Theater Festival will be opened with the premiere performance of the “Telfs Symphony”. In times of uncertainty, the new program will be changed in accordance with local restrictions and social distancing measures will be in place. Thus, the nine theater plays will be staged at Rathaus Hall, the Monastery, the Barn, at schools and in the forest. The program includes "Türkisch Gold” by Tina Müller (Austrian premiere performance), "Indien” by Alfred Dorfer and Josef Hader and “Allerhand Kreuzköpf” by Karl Schönherr.
Side events range from a musical show for kids and adults over a Georg Kreisler Lieder night to an art exhibition and film screenings.
