New theatre projects in public space
Since 2017, the Bundesverband Theater im Öffentlichen Raum has been organising the format ShortCuts - New Theatre Projects in Public Space in the framework programme of Kulturbörse Freiburg.
This is a presentation and networking platform. Actors of the genre, be they artists or organizers, present their new projects and productions for public space in the form of short presentations of no longer than five minutes. The focus here is on promoting theatre in public spaces in Germany, showing the multifaceed nature of the genre and offering (newcomer-)artists an opportunity to present their work.
Over the years, the format has established itself and is often used to get an overview of what is happening in the scene and to create contacts.

Inview of the situation for the first time this year a second ShortCuts-format will take place online:

Tuesday, 12 May 2020 - 2 pm
It is still possible! - For a theatre in public space in summer 2020

Many theatre festivals and summer programmes have already been cancelled. Regulations due to COVID-19 limit events and make them impossible. Nevertheless SHORT CUTS ONLINE shows ways how events can be planned and be realized corona-conform.
It starts with a short information section that presents concepts and recommendations for organisers. In the main part, artists present their ideas for performance formats for the summer of 2020 in 5 minute pitches, followed by the opportunity to talk to the artists about their ideas.

The event takes place on Zoom.
