OPEN CALL: Prague Delegation to the Berlin Performing Arts Festival 2021

 

As a part of the PRALIN exchange project, members of Prague's independent performing arts community have the opportunity to attend the Berlin Performing Arts Festival from May 25th to May 30th, 2021, enter into exchanges with the producers and participating artists and obtain insight into the independent performing arts community of Berlin.

As an annual festival of Berlin’s independent performing arts community, the Berlin Performing Arts Festival demonstrates the diversity and creativity of the independent performing arts community at numerous performance venues throughout the city. But who can say today what situation will await the venues, artists and groups in May of 2021? Despite many questions, the Berlin Performing Arts Festival is looking forward full of optimism and determination. Should we not be able to invite international guests to Berlin due to Covid19, there will be an alternative digital programme that hopefully brings across a genuine festival atmosphere!
