«Days of discoveries, days of abundance»

 Stephan Reuter, Basler Zeitung, 22 June 2016


«The complete works of William Shakespeare, all 36 plays, don’t make up the entire Theaterfestival Basel but are just one of the 20 productions on offer. The third edition of the festival is quite literally bursting at the seams: with a total of 100 events from 17 countries, full of dance, theatre, performances, nouveau cirque, installations and films. The world comes to Basel for 13 days, showcasing what is happening in the international art scene and how things can be viewed and presented from different angles. And this is what makes this festival unique: the enormous diversity of the perspectives it represents.»

The readiness is all!


Hamlet is torn, haunted by doubt and unsure, if he should duel with Laertes. His fear seems without reason, for "if it be now, ’tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all."
