Theatertre en Stückemarkt 2019 by Berliner Festspiele

web site

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.

Conditions for Participation at Stückemarkt 2019

  • theatre makers from all over the world can apply;
  • they should be at the beginning of their careers
  • every theatre maker can only submit one play or performance the submitted work may not be older than one and a half years at the time of the application
  • theatres, publishing houses, universities and academies can also submit plays / performances

The following work can be submitted:

1. Theatre texts: They should not have been premiered in the German-speaking area before June 2019. However, an agreement already made for a premiere after May 2019 is not an exclusion criterion. During the selection process, authors are obliged to inform Stückemarkt of any changes in the status of the work.

Theatre texts can be submitted in English or German.
