Internationalization in the Independent Performing Arts

No matter whether we are talking about festivals, networks, delegation trips or international trade fairs: there are a large number of opportunities to make Berlin’s independent performing arts community more visible on the international level and for artists to network with each other. Over the past two years, however, we have had to come to realize that the collaboration beyond the borders of one’s own country is no longer something that can simply be taken for granted due to the climate crisis, war and pandemic. What advantages and disadvantages do we see in international work? What have we learned through the pandemic? What do we have to pay more attention to in terms of international cooperations? And, most of all: how can we maintain and expand existing networks, alliances and federations in challenging times as well?

With Nisha Anders (Goethe-Institut, invited), Julia Cozic (CFB - Centre Français de Berlin), Thomas F. Eder (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich), Jorge Tejedor (MeetYou Festival Valladolid) and additional guests
