The focus of this year's seminar will be the handbook that will be availabe at the end of 2018, "Neue Vermittlungsformate für die Darstellende Künste" or "New Communication Formats for the Independent Performing Arts Community".
Together with scholars, artists, art communicators and the staff of performance venues, we will discuss the experimental formats introduced in the handbook as well as the concepts of art communication.
Symposia 2015 - 2017
Why do independent dance and theater productions offer communication formats? Why do artists and performance venues participate? What artistic interest do they have in this? What do audiences expect and what do they get out of these formats How are these communication activities financed and how should they be financed? An annual Symposium has been held since 2015 in order to reflect upon these questions together with the members of Berlin’s independent performing arts community. The Symposium sees itself as a platform for examination and further development of the practice of communication within the independent performing arts community.
