The THEATER FEDERATIOUN is the Luxembourgish federation of performing arts. It brings together the professional theatres, ensembles, cultural centres and artists of Luxembourg. Altogether, the THEATER FEDERATIOUN counts 20 members.
Since its foundation in 1996, the THEATER FEDERATIOUN defends the interests of its members and supports them in fulfilling their missions. The THEATER FEDERATIOUN fosters cooperation and dialogue among its members and organizes common activities. In doing so, the THEATER FEDERATIOUN contributes to the preservation and the development of the diverse theatre scene in Luxembourg.
Topics, which the THEATER FEDERATIOUN works on together with its members in various committees, include promoting Luxembourgish theatre and dance abroad, introducing children and young people to theatre and dance, as well as the labour law and the cultural policy that set the framework for theatre and dance professions in Luxembourg. As an interest group, the THEATER FEDERATIOUN provides a platform for its members to raise and discuss common concerns.
Furthermore, the THEATER FEDERATIOUN supports its members in promoting their artistic programme. A main promotional tool is the monthly publication "Theaterzeitung", enclosed in the major daily and weekly newspapers and presenting the current programme of the members of the THEATER FEDERATIOUN. The website of the THEATER FEDERATIOUN contains the complete programme of all the members for the whole season.
Another mission of the THEATER FEDERATIOUN is to raise public awareness when it comes to the performing arts, their successes and their concerns, both in general and more specifically related to Luxembourg.
