Interkunst e.V., located in Berlin, is looking for young performing artists for their upcoming theatre und music tour “INSTANT ACTS against violence and racism”.

We are looking for performers – soloists or duos, age between 18 and 30, who are involved in theatre, dance, music, circus (no aerial acts), x-sport etc. We want to create an international ensemble of 15 talented and creative people who are open for new experiences. We want to reach out a young audience and explore different aspects of violence, racism and islamophobia. We believe art is a powerful educational tool.
Invited artists should prepare one or two short performances connected to the theme of the project (max 10 min each), based on their personal experiences and ideas concerning the subject matter violence, racism and islamophobia. During the first week we will work together in a rehearsal process to create our original piece. With the help of an experienced artistic director, all the ideas and elements will then be orchestrated to create a unique and compelling professional touring show (75 min). Once on tour the artists will lead theatre, dance. music, circus (etc.) workshops for teenagers 13 to 16. We will present our project in schools, theatres, cultural-centres and youth prisons. Travel, board, lodging and a salary are provided for each artist. We will inform everyone interested to participate how much salary will be.
