Introducing...

The Newcomer’s platform Introducing… is a special focus within the festival. It presents promising (young) artists, artist groups and collective who work professionally yet define themselves as “newcomers” in the broadest sense. The artists, artist groups and collectives have their residence in Berlin or plan to have their residence in Berlin in the future but are not established within the city’s independent performing arts community. A curated selection of the submissions will be presented during the festival at the four cooperating performance venues Ballhaus Ost, HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Sophiensæle and Theaterdiscounter.
