How to get involved
COLLABORATIONS – STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS
The Young Academy invites city residents to become actors on their own stages, in their own city districts. Burgtheater artists meet young Viennese talents. In six groups, they will work on the theme of “New Babylon” in different districts, as well as at the Burgtheater itself. They will search for visionary concepts that go beyond the traditional perceptions of life together in urban society.
- From Autumn 2019 across the city
- April 2020 Concluding presentation in the Akademietheater

WRITING IMPULSE & RETZHOF DRAMA PRIZE
The BURGTHEATERSTUDIO’s development programme for young writers aims to motivate children and young people to write their own dramatic texts. Together with former winners of the Retzhof Drama Prize, participants will acquire and refine their knowledge of crafting skills such as dramatic structure, fleshing out figures into characters that generate emotional attachment, and dialogue techniques.
On several weekends during the season, the BURGTHEATERSTUDIO will host a brunch where guests have the opportunity to talk to ensemble members and Burgtheater staff about forthcoming premieres, current topics and anything to do with the Burgtheater.
- No registration required
