Lessing Days

Theater Festival at the Hamburg Thalia Theater

This year the Lessingtage will take place at Hamburg's Thalia Theatre from 25 January to 12 February 2022.

The motto of the Lessing Days has been "Everything in the World" since 2009, but this year it is more current than ever. In a world that has rarely been so dissociated and disruptive. It is about the diversity of a fragmented world, in which people love and hate, in which the beautiful and the ugly, war and peace must exist in parallel in an unbearable way. It is about a world in a state of emergency.

The Lessingtage 2023 stands for diversity of artistic positions, art forms and themes. More information about the Lessingtage 2023 programme can be found here (in german).

Lessingtage 2022 successful despite Corona

As every year, the 13th Lessingtage came to an end with the "Long Night of World Religions". At the beginning of January 20, the festival had started with two international in-house productions. This was followed by selected guest performances as well as festival successes from all over Europe. Readings, exhibitions, numerous talk formats, concerts and artificial actions of young people were also part of the program of the 13th Lessingtage.

The format took place both live and analog. The opening international productions, including Chekhov's "The Black Monk" and Toshiki Okada's "Doughnuts," were well received by audiences. "These were stellar moments of theater," said Joachim Lux, Indendant. "The motto 'Celebration of Life' has completely come true, we are looking forward to a better future!"
