Magdeburg (dpa/sa) - The new General Manager of the Magdeburg Theater, Julien Chavaz, relies on significantly less hierarchy at the theater. "I'm a team player. I'm not the announcer, I want to be an enabler. I'm concerned with a common, interdisciplinary aesthetic, with a common approach to the audience," said the 40-year-old of the "Magdeburger Volksstimme" (Wednesday edition). . "I want to give the audience a different role, I want to do theater with the audience, I want to bring laypeople onto the stage, it's about mediation, about constant dialogue."
The native Swiss went on to say: "And I want to get away from the classic theater approach, inviting people who just watch us. We are not fish in the aquarium."
With a theater festival from September 9th to 11th, the Magdeburg Theater will open its 2022/23 season under the new General Manager Chavaz. Several premieres in drama and opera are planned, as well as an improv show and a singing project with football fans is to be presented. The new theater management and the ensemble introduce themselves, the ballet invites you to a tea dance, there are various offers for children.
