The institute for applied theatre studies at Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen views theatre as a living practice. The course of studies centres on examining the histrionic both in a scientific sense and on a practical, artistic level. 

The institute regards theatre as a living practice in a scientific and practical sense. The course is characterized by media theoretical and media critical reflection as well as artistic experiments.

This offer is mirrored in the institute’s extensively used supply of equipment, which includes two sound and video studios as well as a rehearsal stage fully equipped with light and sound technology, bringing forth countless performances, sound and video installations as well as independent film and radio play productions by students.
