Professional meetings, workshops and performances at the Theatertage Rheinland-Pfalz
In the frame of the Theatertage Rheinland-Pfalz, the Staatstheater Mainz organises, with the support of Kultur | lx – Arts Council Luxembourg, an exchange platform between performing arts professionals from Belgium, France, Germany and Luxembourg under the title Crossing Borders.
For two days during the festival, on 14 and 15 March 2022, various forums for exchange will be offered, which will deal with general questions and problems of cross-border work, including funding opportunities and information to help international mobility. 20 participants from Luxembourg will be offered a space to discuss touring opportunities in other countries and to look for co-production partners.
The festival will also honour Luxembourgish creation by programming AppHuman by Sophie Langevin and Ian de Tofolli on 14 March.
Elise Schmit is one of the six selected writers from Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Canada and Ireland participating in the Playwrights’ Workshop, led by renowned theatre-maker Chris Thorpe. This workshop offers them the opportunity to meet and talk with authors about their work and writing. The workshop will conclude with a public presentation to meet the participants and get an insight into their work.
As a preliminary, and in order to prepare performing arts professionals for these meetings, Kultur | lx initiates a new series of webinars mapping the German performing arts market.
Two webinars will introduce the specificities of the German theatre and dance markets offering an overview of the main venues, festivals and networks, the systems of production and distribution, the current aesthetic trends. They will also be a space to get advice on how to enter the market as a foreigner and ask questions.
