Dear Children, dear theatre friends – Lingen is calling!

The following pages portray the 13th World Festival of Children’s Theatre as it took place in Lingen (Ems), Germany, in 2014. The given content, photographs and videos are reminiscent of the groups that were present, the performances that there were, and the atmosphere. Besides wonderful memories, the WFCT 2018 seems almost near! The application to the AITA/ITA is submitted and will hopefully soon be confirmed with a positive answer. We are currently looking to find a motto that will leave its mark on the festival in 2018. Ideas may be handed in through the contact page.

The World Festival of Children’s Theatre (WFCT) has its origin in the work of the Theaterpädagogisches Zentrum der Emsländischen Landschaft e.V. (TPZ Lingen) and took place in 1990 for the first time. This theatre festival by children for children is unique and the biggest in the world. In cooperation with the International Amateur Theater Association (AITA/IATA), it has been organized in various cities around the world.

Organizer on behalf of the International Amateur Theatre Association (AITA/IATA) is the Theaterpädagogisches Zentrum der Emsländischen Landschaft e.V. (TPZ Lingen) supported by the City of Lingen (Ems). Cooperating partner for the accompanying Symposium are the Institute for Theatre Pedagogy of the University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück and the European Theatre House (ETH).
