Since the start of the 2023/2024 season, the DT Ensemble has been presenting short texts by international authors in a weekly podcast series, called ATT On Air: stories about hope, courage and optimism in a heating world; stories from countries who are already directly and heavily impacted by the climate emergency. From Venezuela to the Philippines, from Australia to Uganda, this budding network of authors jointly questions the role that theater narratives can play in the climate crisis. Four of the authors, Simona Hamer from Slovenia, Himali Kothari from India, Marwa Manai from Tunisia and Pat To Yan from Hong Kong, will be present in Berlin during the festival. They will explore the question of 'How to Write About the Crisis' from an international perspective on June 14, in writing workshops open to the ATT audience, and in a panel discussion moderated by nachtkritik journalist Elena Philipp. Registration for the writing workshops: The authors' panel will be livestreamed on
