Playwrights: Apply for the Berliner Festspiele’s Worldwide Call for Texts and Performances

06 Oct 2018

Deadline: 11 November 2018

Artists worldwide are invited to submit their latest theatre text or performance for the Berlin Festspiele’s Stückemarkt.

Where are the artists who turn the rules, forms and aesthetics of the theatre upside down, challenge them, think differently and develop new texts, forms and formats?

Under the heading “What happens after the protest?” Stückemarkt is searching for work that goes beyond descriptions of a status quo, imagines possible futures and seeks new forms of artistic-activist interference. For the first time Stückemarkt is asking artists worldwide to submit work addressing questions that go further than romanticizing revolts but rather pursue the question of what other worlds could possibly look like.

Stückemarkt’s jury of renowned international artists will select a total of five texts/performances from among the submissions. One of the invited playwrights/performance groups will be awarded the Stückemarkt commission, funded by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung/bpb). The comission consists of the opportunity to realize a production at a theatre in Germany.
