New call for applications


The funding program Change of Scene, initiated by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the German Centre of the International Theatre Institute, supports international cooperation projects in the performing arts with partners from Eastern Europe and North Africa.


The program is looking for projects which take up recent tendencies and changes in societies and make them visible in the mutual artistic reflection. The program’s main purpose is to support the preparation and development of new artistic projects that are created together in a time period up to two years. Existing contacts can be expanded as well as new ones initiated.


The collaborations should put new accents on proven ways of expression and present new working methods in their projects. Particularly, the initiation and development of international artistic projects which are created through cooperation of two partners are supported by Change of Scene.


The call for applications is intended for theater and independent theater groups from all areas of the performing arts such as drama, children and youth theater, dance, musical theater, puppet theater and performance from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The supported projects should be presented in the German-speaking country; however a presentation in the partner country is equally desirable.


10-12 international cooperation projects, chosen by an independent jury, will be supported with up to 15,000 Euro. The jurors are Tilmann Broszat (director Festival SPIELART München), Annette Dabs (director Puppet Theater Festival FIDENA), Stefan Schmidtke (curator Wiener Festwochen), Branko Šimic (director KRASS Festival) and Elisabeth Wellershaus (cultural journalist).


Application deadline: February 15, 2015
