Berliner Festspiele > Theatertreffen > Open call

he Stückemarkt of the Berliner Theatertreffen is looking for innovative theatre languages and diverse forms of authorship. The organisers would like to invite theatre makers from all parts of Europe to apply by submitting their latest plays. Theatre texts and finished productions can be submitted, the medium of language should be a main aspect of the work. The organisers particularly encourage the submission of projects that deal with the political dimension of narration, question the power structures in our society and open up alternative world views.

The Stückemarkt’s jury of artists will select a total of five works from among the submissions. These plays will be presented within the programme of the Theatertreffen, in a format that corresponds with their form – as staged readings, performances, lectures, site-specific formats etc.

In cooperation with the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (Federal Agency for Civic Education), the Stückemarkt will bestow a commission of work to one of the invited artists or groups. This comes with prize money in the amount of 7000.- Euro and includes the production of a new work at a theatre in Germany.

Deadline: 1 December
