OUTNOW! 2019
International Performing Arts Festival
From June 7 to 10, 2019

A cooperation project of the Schwankhalle and Theater Bremen From June 7 to 10, 2019, the Schwankhalle and Theater Bremen will again
host the Performing Arts Festival OUTNOW! Founded at the Künstlerhaus Schwankhalle Bremen in 1994, the festival has taken place biannually as a
cooperation project of the Schwankhalle and Theater Bremen since 2013.

OUTNOW! showcases young artists, groups, and collectives from all over Europe at the start of their professional careers.
Individual artists, directors, groups, and collectives who have not been producing their own works for much longer than three years are invited to
submit their current productions to the OUTNOW! Festival 2019. Contributions from other disciplines such as media art, visual art, and music with
performative or theatrical references are just as welcome as performances in public space and site-specific projects.

Theater halls in Theater Bremen
and the Schwankhalle are available. In addition, individual stages for urban    space will be developed in a seminar at the University of the Arts Bremen.
If possible, suitable spaces will be sought for pieces performed beyond the stage or in public space. There are no limitations regarding the length of
the productions or the number of participants; short works and works with a large cast are also taken into consideration. A jury of representatives of the
organizers will select the works invited to the festival from the submissions.

As a forum for international, up-and-coming theater creatives, OUTNOW! offers the invited artists the opportunity to be present during the entire fes-
tival period. Internal discussion formats, time for encounters and exchange are very important to the Festival. OUTNOW! offers individual consultation
on organizational and aesthetic issues, from application advice with a professional production office all the way to feedback walks with dramaturgs
of the participating venues. Furthermore, a selected group of young culture journalists and theater scholars will accompany the festival with reports.

OUTNOW! grasps itself as a festival for artists at the start of their professional career
Applications can be submitted by individual
artists and groups from all artistic disciplines who have been professionally working as artists for not much longer than three years.
Students can also apply.

The submitted works must be able to go on tour and may not be older than two years

All formats from the performing arts or with theatrical or performative references are welcome: OUTNOW! has presented and will present works for the stage, site-specific works, installations, performances in public space, and audio walks. The works needn’t be fulllength. Works with a larger cast are also taken into account.

deadline: August 15, 2018.
