TWB Digest #394

Dear reader, 

The third PRO.ACT Fest will be held February 28th to March 1st, 2020
in Kyiv, Ukraine. Last year we hosted six theatre companies from
Ukraine, Israel, Canada and Hungary with 15 productions in English.
The festival will include various theatre performances as well as
acting workshops, solely in English.
The main theme of the Festival is “Limit / less”. We are convinced
that the theater should break any existing boundaries both in the
outside world and inside each performance.
To apply for the PRO.ACT Fest 2020 – follow the link

Applications must be submitted no later than December 15th, 2019

Theatertreffen Stückemarkt 2020 / Open Call

Under the heading “Against Separation”, Stückemarkt is looking for works from all parts of the world that explore the concept of solidarity from a perspective of art and aesthetics. What could our drafts for an open, equitable coexistence look like? How can they be expanded into the future? What exactly is an act of solidarity? What would a society where solidarity no longer exists look like? What happens when individuals no longer believe in the big picture, when the private has replaced the public sphere? And: Who owes what to whom exactly?

Deadline for applications: 17 November 2019

Changing the World Through Circus

The Circus Action Network was created out of a desire to bridge the gap between my passion for circus and my passion for the environment and climate justice. Together with a few friends I founded the Circus Action Network as a collaborative platform for talking about social and environmental engagement in our work and supporting and learning from each other. We aim to be a resource for those interested in these issues, to promote sustainable, inclusive and diverse practices in the circus arts and to create a supportive and collaborative community of circus artists and practitioners who are passionate about tackling the social and environmental challenges of our time.
