7 May19 June 2005. One of the capitals main cultural events for the past 50 years, the 2005 festival includes 37 productions, 14 debuts and 164 performances from countries as diverse as Brazil, China, Hungary, India and South Africa. Fort Europa is one of this years most topical plays, treating modern migration with a sobering twist. The play was written by Belgian dramatist, novelist and poet Tom Lanoye, whose best-known works in the German-speaking region are Schlachten! (Ten Oorlog) and Mamma Medea. Besides ground-breaking theatre, the festival also includes a wide spectrum of concerts, Dan Graham's rock puppet opera Don't Trust Anyone Over Thirty (3-6 June) and the provocatively-entitled The Peepshow Project (12-15 June). Admission: 5-52.
