Berlin meets Aarhus! As part of Bridging the Scenes and with the goal of further networking the independent performing arts communities in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Berlin, we are offering eight Berlin-based artists working within the independent performing arts community with the opportunity to attend the Danish Selected Works Festival in Aarhus.

Information Event
This information event will provide an overview of the most important funding opportunities for the year 2022: what funding instruments are offered by Berlin’s Senate Department for Culture and Europe and what foundations are relevant? What German federal and EU funding programs should be focused on? What is the current status of grants and residencies? We will provide an overview of the topic and answer the most urgent questions regarding funding tools.

Network Event
Starting to work within the independent performing arts community has its quirks and it certainly hasn’t become any easier in the middle of a pandemic. Networking and discussion with each other as well as with experienced theater makers of the independent performing arts community is now especially called for. Over the course of this informal Stammtisch, or regulars’ table, host Therese Schmidt invites the participants to talk about the needs and typical questions of newcomers, discuss funding opportunities and the basic structure of the funding system.

Workshop
This workshop is about formulating a well-rounded proposal from your own ideas and concepts: What can I do to make the text understandable? How does the artistic idea become precise and clear? What do I have to pay attention to when a jury reads the text? How does the text have to be structured and is there something like “application poetry” at all? This format offers space for exchange and information on the topic.

The Industry Get-Together Audio Archive 2021

Anyone who wants to play needs rules. How do we want to structure ourselves? What principles of order result in freedom? Which produce violence or exclusion? Again and again, we return to the issues of power relationships and structural changes.

This year, we turned our attention to adjustments that can be in terms of administration, art and form. For those who couldn't attend everything at once, want to listen to it again or can't get enough of all the content, you can find our audio archive here. There you can listen to almost all talks, impulses and statements – no matter when and where.

Performing Arts Programm Berlin

With the Performing Arts Program, LAFT Berlin has created an effective instrument for the infrastructural strengthening, professionalization and networking of Berlin‘s independent performing arts community.
No matter whether we are talking about a symposium or a cooperation event, one questions is always at the forefront of the work of the Berlin Performing Arts Program: what and how can we learn from each other and how can we then integrate it sustainably within our own work?
