Artist Training PERFORMING ARTS III – From idea to production, 12 - 15 November 2019

Artist Training PERFORMING ARTS III provides 4 days of information, consulting and networking to establish for artists in exile.

Are you a theatre professional in exile? Do you have an idea for a new performance or want to stage a new play? Artist Training PERFORMING ARTS III is addressed to actors, directors, performers, producers and stage/lighting/costume designers in exile. Within four days, you will work closely with Katja Kettner, an internationally working producer, to develop your idea into a production-based proposal and to put together a concrete financial plan. You will receive hands-on tips to your artistic concept from Christopher Fares Köhler,  dramaturg of Maxim Gorki Theater. You will gain valuable insights into the independent venue Sophiensaele and its season planning through artistic director Franziska Werner. You will pitch your project and get immediate feedback from your fellow theater practitioners. You will exchange ideas and test out possible collaboration at our cooperative networking event MindLab# in collaboration with “Guides to Berlin’s Independent Arts Community” of Performing Arts Programme of LAFT Berlin. Based on the result of our open call “Tell us what you need”, the last edition of Artist Training PERFORMING ARTS III under the guidance of theater directors Chang Nai Wen and Anis Hamdoun will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to produce your work in Berlin. 

For professional artists only. Working language is English. Registration with CV and Portfolio is required. The program is free of charge.
