Open Call Stückemarkt 2017 der Berliner Festspiele

18. 10. 2016

The Stückemarkt of the Berliner Theatertreffen is looking for innovative theatre languages and diverse forms of authorship. We would like to invite theatre makers from all parts of Europe to apply by submitting their latest plays. Theatre texts and finished productions can be submitted, the medium of language should be a main aspect of the work.

In the midst of social upheaval, Stückemarkt, as a venue for critical-aesthetic discourse, explicitly investigates the political aspect of writing. We expressly welcome pieces that deal with the description of a complex diversity of society with the aim of rendering the world tangible, that jar with prevailing conditions, that ask questions or construct alternative visions of the future. The possibilities of being an author in a radically impossible reality are at the focus of our interest.

The Stückemarkt’s jury of artists will select a total of five works from among the submissions. These plays will be presented within the programme of the Theatertreffen, in a format that corresponds with their form – as staged readings, performances, lectures, site-specific formats etc.

In cooperation with the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (Federal Agency for Civic Education), the Stückemarkt will bestow a commission of work to one of the invited artists or groups. This commission includes prize money of € 7,000 and will be awarded in a participatory procedure. It also includes the production of a new work at a theatre in Germany.

The Stückemarkt of the Theatertreffen is the oldest promoting initiative for contemporary drama in the German language area. By discovering new voices for the theatre, it has been promoting innovation for 38 years. As the first funding programme, the Stückemarkt expanded the concept of dramatic texts in 2012 to include a variety of forms of plays in the competition.


Deadline for applications: 1 December 2016
