this is the Open Call for the international student festival FURORE in Ludwigsburg.
The deadline for applications is March 5, 2018.
Welcome to FURORE!
This summer, the Academy of Performing
Arts Baden-Württemberg (ADK) holds its second international theatre
festival, Furore. For three long summer days and nights, Ludwigsburg
will be the pulsing heart of tomorrow´s theatre world.
marks both the 300th anniversary of the town of Ludwigsburg, and the
10th anniversary of the Academy of Performing Arts. On the occasion of
this double celebration, we invite young artists and collectives from
Baden-Württemberg, Europe and further afield to Ludwigsburg. Between 19 -
22 July, Furore will bring together local and international emerging
artists, and offer insight into new work and thinking around performing
For Furore, performing arts may include spoken and music
theatre, dance and performance art, but also projects that stretch out
to film, animation and fine arts. The Academy´s close ties to the Film
Academy Ludwigsburg and the Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart enables a
wide range of interdisciplinary projects. To complement the main
programme of performances, Furore will also include a range of lectures,
talks, parties and concerts.
In an increasingly unstable
world, where new borders are drawn, defined and defended everywhere we
look, Furore is looking instead for the vague, the elusive, the fluid.
Searching for something to hold onto, performing arts can at present
only be complex and controversial. We do not believe in straight
answers. We do not want to resolve contradictions. We cannot pretend to
not be liminal. We will colour in the gaps between us with felt-tips. We
will encounter anOther, eachOther. We will throw a party for all the
differences. Long live disagreement! Long live polyphony! We are no we.
We don´t belong to this. That is why we´re exactly right here.
