Shared Trade Fair Stand at the INTHEGA Theatermarkt in Bielefeld

On October 11 and 12, 2021

The Interessengemeinschaft der Städte mit Theatergastspielen e. V. (the Association of the Interest Group of Cities with Theatrical Guest Performances, or INTHEGA) is a communal umbrella association with some 400 member cities from throughout the German-speaking world. At the INTHEGA Theatermarkt, the leading trade fair for German-speaking touring theater, those offering touring theater productions present their work to programmers of cultural institutions each year in Bielefeld in October.

This year’s theater market takes place in Bielefeld on October 11 and 12. The Berlin Performing Arts Program will make a trade fair stand available as a platform for Berlin-based artists there. We warmly invite all members of the independent performing arts community to present themselves and their work at the trade fair stand and to converse with potential programmers.

The Berlin Performing Arts Program is able to cover the admission fees as well as the costs for travel and accommodation for a limited number of participants. A prerequisite for taking part is a long history of professional work within the independent performing arts and a primary residence in Berlin. In addition, each participant must at least one production that has already premiered and is capable of being toured that can be presented at the trade fair with corresponding print and possibly video trailer material.
We would like to give as many artists as possible the option of taking part, but we do reserve the right to make a selection on the basis of the promotional material provided in the event that there are more applicants than there is space.



Anyone who would like to take part is asked to please send a binding application including links with informative digital promotional material (trailer, websites, flyers in PDF form, et cetera - and please send large files via WeTransfer) with the subject “INTHEGA” by September 19, 2021 to: messen2021 [at] ()

We will then need additional print promotional material from the selected artists (max. 100 flyers / brochures or similar materials and possibly 3 or 4 small posters). These should arrive at the Berlin Performing Arts Program office in Ballhaus Ost by September 29, at the latest.
