Award-winning German playwright rejects invitation to Moscow over anti-gay laws

Marius von Mayenburg, turned down the invitation to visit Moscow to give a masterclass, and attend a staging of his work.

He cited the federal law which bans the promotion of “non-traditional relationships”, as his reason for declining, and noted a solidarity with his LGBT friends.

“I work with a lot of artists of non-traditional sexual orientation who are my friends, who I have ties with and who I feel responsible for,” von Mayenburg said in a letter to the Moscow’s Theatre of Nations, and to the Territory international contemporary art festival.

The award winning playwright had been invited to a showcase of his work, and to give a masterclass on 3 October.
