Sophiensaele Berlin, in collaboration with the theaters Forum Freies Theater, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, brut and Gessnerallee, will organize FREISCHWIMMER Festival as of fall 2016! Now you have the opportunity to develop your project in residencies and then tour along the different participating venues, all in the framework of the festival!
FREISCHWIMMER is a platform for young artists with different expressions such as theater, performance, live art, visual arts, music, film and new media. Five to six project proposals will be selected and developed in special producing houses. The results of the created projects will be presented as part of the FREISCHWIMMER festival which tours along different cities!
The artists will have the unique opportunity to showcase their productions at five different venues, in three different countries and in front of completely different local audiences. FREISCHWIMMER aims to develop sustainable productions and create professional settings for the upcoming artists. By ’upcoming’ they mean artists who have already completed projects beyond the context of their formal studies or training, and who are able to define their individual artistic signature.
The organization is looking for exceptional project proposals. Aside from stage works, it also could be for instance installation works, sound performances, excursions through the city or durational performances! They aim for a diverse selection of art projects including a wide range of contemporary creative works and experimentation in the field of performance art.
Artists from the participating cities (Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Vienna, Zurich and Berlin) who wish to be part of the festival must apply directly to their respective theater. Show off your talent, develop your own project, and grab this amazing opportunity!
