DIRTY DEBÜT offers four emerging performance artists a platform to show sketches, unfinished projects or even dirty works in response to a concrete theme or idea.
This special edition responds to the particular circumstances of the current situation: Rather than presenting four performances at Ballhaus Ost, this time we’ll show four works that will never have happened. The materials or documentation of these speculative shows will be consolidated into a program booklet, which will be published by August 14th, 2020 on our website.
The theme of DIRTY DEBÜT#7 is dark room.
Would you like to be one of the four artists or groups to develop a speculative performance and present it in the form of a program booklet? Then send us a sketch of your idea in response to the theme in German or English (max. 2000 characters) and your resume. Participation is open to anyone who hasn’t shown more than one professionally developed work. Student projects will unfortunately not be accepted. For that reason, we also ask you to please send a certificate of exmatriculation as proof that you are no longer studying. For the development of a program booklet, you’ll receive 2000 € and an additional 150 € for materials. We will offer our help, should you need support with the layout and editing.
Out of the applications submitted, the jury – Björn Pätz, Sandra Umathum, Maxi Wallenhorst and Joshua Wicke – will select four drafts that they view as distinct and promising in their artistic approach.
We look forward to your submissions!
Please send them to email@example.com
The application deadline is June 22nd, 2020 @ 23:59.
Decisions will be announced shortly thereafter.
We will notify the selected artists without delay.
