Interkunst e.V., a non-profit based in Berlin that creates socially motivated performances and projects, is looking for performers to participate in creating and touring INSTANT ACTS against violence and racism, a music and theatre piece that 'aims to motivate young people to lead active and creative lives' and 'works effectively against prejudices, violence and racism'.
They are looking to bring together 15 young performers with diverse skills — theatre, dance, music, circus (but no aerial), extreme sports, etcetera — to form an interdiciplinary ensemble that will create and tour the INSTANT ACTS show. Applications can come from individuals or from groups of two or three people, and from anyone in the 17-30 age range.
Successful applicants will need to bring pre-prepared short performances for the project (max 10 minutes), based on 'their personal experiences and ideas concerning the subject matter' — so violence and racism. These short pieces will be presented as part of INSTANT ACTS, but the chosen ensemble will also create original pieces together. An artistic director will work with the group to turn the various elements into a 75 minute professional touring show.
On tour, artists will lead youth workshops (in theatre, dance, music, etcetera) in the morning, and perform in the afternoon. The project will visit schools, theatres, churches, youth and cultural centres, and prisons.
Lodging, catering, transport and a salary are provided for participating artists.
To apply send your personal information (name, date of birth, nationality, picture), your artistic history and experiences (preferably with a demo tape / link), a description of your capability to lead a workshop with young people, and your motivation to take part in the project to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 May 2012.
