Annette Windlin directs the Altdorf Tellspiele theatre festival in 2021
“I am very pleased that we will have the opportunity to stage the Tellspiele 2021,” says Annette Windlin. “Schiller’s drama is timeless and we aim to take it seriously, addressing the questions that arise for the present and the future.” The word “we” is central to Anette Windlin’s approach: “I am a collaborative person. Teamwork is very important in my work, and the productions grow through working as a team.” Within the team, the Urner Matteo Schenardi is assistant director. Dominique Müller is responsible for dramaturgy, Ruth Mächler for the design and Valentina-Maria Mächler for the video art, while Lukas Schmocker provides the choreography. “Music will play a key role in the staging. This will be in the safe hands of Christian Wallner (guitar), Carlo Gamma (saxophone) and Fränggi Gehrig (accordion).”
