Change of Scene – International artistic cooperations for the Performing Arts > Call for proposals

Auf Deutsch / en français

The organisers* are looking for cooperation projects that address prevailing social themes and change and manifest them in a joint artistic response. Change of Scene helps to initiate and develop international artistic projects that are the result of direct collaboration between the cooperating partners. For up to two years, artists will gain the time and space to meet each other as well as have opportunity for intensive exchange. Existing contacts can be deepened further or built up afresh.

This Call for Proposals is directed at civic and state theaters as well as independent companies from the German-speaking realm (Germany, Austria or Switzerland) who wish to develop a new artistic project with a partner from North Africa or Eastern Europe. Change of Scene is open to all sectors of the performing arts. There should be one public presentation of the sponsored projects in both countries, or, at least, in the German-speaking partner country.

The jury chooses about 10 cooperation projects, each to receive a subsidy of up to 15.000 Euros. The jury consists of: Jörg Bochow (Head Dramaturge, Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg), Anja Dirks (Artistic Director of the Belluard Festival, Fribourg), Stefan Schwarz (Program Director, tanzhaus NRW, Düsseldorf), Branko Šimić (Director, Hamburg) and Bettina Sluzalek (Artistic Associate, Radialsystem V, Berlin).

Deadline: 15 February 2017
