The Jury

Laura Berman

US-born curator and dramaturge Laura Berman has lived in Germany since 1983. Her main interest lies in New Music in interaction with other elements of the dramatic arts. As an independent dramaturge she has worked for the Vienna Festwochen, Bayerische Staatsoper, Schwetzinger Festspiele, Berliner Festspiele, the ballet of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus and the Zurich Ballet. Following engagements in Münster and Darmstadt, she became senior music dramaturge at Theater Freiburg, and since October 2007 she has been artistic director of the Bregenzer Festspiele's "Kunst aus der Zeit" programme.

Roland Quitt

studied Music, Philosophy and German at Berlin's Freie Universität. After some years working in fringe theatre as a director, actor and head of an opera ensemble, he began working as a dramaturge for various theatres. From 1998 to 2004 he was "dramaturge for new music theatre" at Theater Bielefeld and is currently music dramaturge at Nationaltheater Mannheim.

Since 1996 a main focus of his work has been the field of advanced contemporary music theatre. While in Bielefeld, he founded the visible music series as a field for experimentation in forms of music theatre beyond opera, which was later continued in Mannheim. He has been responsible for the conception and awarding of contracts for several world premieres, and has collaborated with many of Europe's leading composers for new music theatre.
