The LBI London and the LBI New York present an international conference on the life and legacy of Kurt Hirschfeld, the Dramaturg and director most closely associated with the emergence of the Schauspielhaus as the home of German theatre in exile. The conference under the patronage of the City of Zurich and hosted by the Schauspielhaus Zürich, brings together scholars and representatives of the contemporary theatre world and also features a dramatic reading of letters selected from Hirschfeld’s archival collection, which is preserved at the archives of the LBI New York.
