Open Call: Exchange Trip Open Up! - Exchanges Between the Independent Performing Arts Communities of Hesse and Berlin in 2022

In cooperation with the Landesverband Professionelle Freie Darstellende Künste Hessen e. V. (laPROF, the Hessian State Association of the Professional Independent Performing Arts)

Open Up! - Exchanges Between the Independent Performing Arts Communities of Hesse and Berlin in 2022 is taking place in cooperation with the Landesverband Professionelle Freie Darstellende Künste Hessen e. V. (laPROF, the Hessian State Association of the Professional Independent Performing Arts). It includes a trip by a delegation of community members from Berlin to the festival Politik im Freien Theater (Politics in Independent Theater) in Frankfurt am main between October 6 and October 9, 2022 as well as the invitation of a delegation from Hesse to the 10th Industry Get-Together of the Independent Performing Arts Community in Berlin from October 20 to 22, 2022.

As has been the focus in previous years, this year’s exchange trip is intended to support the national and international networking of the independent performing arts within the German-speaking world and create space for making new contacts, for professional exchange as well as the passing on of specialized knowledge.
In the year 2022, with the 11th edition of the festival Politik im Freien Theater, which is being held in Hesse for the very first time, and the 10th Industry Get-Together of the Independent Performing Arts shortly following this in Berlin, there two very suitable occasions to meet each other (again) and take in some new impulses from outside of one’s own community.

In addition, the Frankfurter Festival AG, consisting of laPROF, ID_Frankfurt and studio naxos and thus also serving as a robust representation of the independent performing arts community, is part of the festival management for the first time and is organizing the festival Politik im Freien Theater together with Schauspiel Frankfurt and Künstlerhaus Mousontum. With a glance toward the organization requirements and the thematic focus of the festival, “power”, in Frankfurt am Main and the connection with the Berlin focus on the evaluation of 10 years of the Industry Get-Together as well as the Berlin Performing Arts Program, both events offer a great deal of input and inspiration for looking into the future together and creating (power) critical visions for the further development of the performing arts in the German-speaking world.

All members from the independent performing arts communities in Hesse and Berlin are warmly invited to take part in Open Up! and enter into contact with each other in events which quickly follow each other.

We look forward to exciting encounters!
