Open Call: Berliner Festspiele, Theatertreffen 2019: Stückemarkt & International Forum

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.
Deadline for applications: 11 November 2018; Jury decision: February 2019.
