Open Call: Trade Fair Stand "Performing Arts Made In Berlin" at the 2018 tanzmesse nrw

Presentation at the internationale tanzmesse nrw (the North Rhine-Westphalia International Dance Trade Fair)

We hereby warmly invite all of you to work with us at the Performing Arts Program stand at internationalen tanzmesse nrw.

internationale tanzmesse nrw will be held from August 29 to September 1, 2018 in Düsseldorf. The Performing Arts Program will present Berlin's independent performing arts community there with a stand. The goal is to give artists, groups, performance venues and other institutions the opportunity to present themselves at the event.

The name of the stand will be “Performing Arts Made in Berlin” and will be staffed at all times by one or two members of the Performing Arts Program team.
The stand will feature a monitor for presentations, a shelf for presenting informational materials and a standing table for engaging in conversations.
In order to participate, we ask all interested parties working the fields of dance and performance to submit the following informational materials by Thursday, June 27, 2018:

Print materials
can be flyers, postcards, programs, brochures, business cards, et cetera (max. 3 different types with about 30 copies of each).
Digital presentations should be in the form of either trailers or photo slideshows (max. 5 minutes), plus a file featuring the logo of the artist, group, venue or institution.

The informational material will be laid out and made available at the stand. All digital presentations will be shown on the monitor at regular intervals.

Unfortunately, we can only consider submission that include both print materials as well as digital presentations that present at least one already produced internationally tourable production. By submitting your materials, your name and web link will be added to the website of the tanzmesse.

In addition, we can offer all interested parties a half an hour focus at the stand in order to be able to present themselves and their work there.
Due to the schedule, the number of participants is limited to a maximum of twelve.

Please note that travel expenses, expenses for overnight accommodations and the personal registration fee for the trade fair in the amount of 125 EUR (includes access to the trade fair, to all events and to all performances) unfortunately cannot be assumed by us.

We ask you to submit your materials and/or register your participation by June 27, 2018, at the latest!
