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 took place ONLINE in May.
ShortCuts ONLINE was a complete success. 80 participants including 30 international organisers came together to exchange ideas with artists about corona-compliant performance-formats for the summer 2020.
In January 2021 the online version of the ShortCuts will traditionally take place during the Internationale Kulturbörse Freiburg.
SAVE THE DATE: On Tuesday 19.01.2021 from 14:00 - 16:00h, ten artists* will have the opportunity to present their projects in five-minute pitches!
