Application form: EUROPEAN YOUNG THEATRE 2018_information and application form


FURORE goes tabula rasa. Clears the decks. Goes back to square one. Invites a dialogue with silence. Fills the vacuum. Looks for the gaps. Scans the darkness. Darns black holes. Delimits the boundless. Transcends the quantum. Argues with the echo. Makes universal politics. Gives time an ultimatum.

We, the students of the Academy of Performing Arts (ADK), would like to invite you to the third edition of FURORE, the international festival for young theatre on the campus of ADK and Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg.

This year’s theme THE VOID, deliberately leaves a blank space – leaving the decision of whether and how it can be filled to the young artists and their works.

In our student-organised festival, we want to offer international artists and visitors a space to meet, debate and discuss. Creators from different artistic fields can get to know one another, present their work, participate in seminars and discuss new forms and methods of dramatic and performing arts. Divergent forms, hybrids, new ways of performing and staging are highly welcome. Classical, performative, choreographic, cinematic, installational artworks – we looke forward to experiments of every kind.

Any interested young theatre artists can apply with their projects.

Closing date: 17th February 2020.
Selected Projects will be announce in mid-March.
If you have any further queries, please contact us via:


Best wishes,

FURORE Festival-Team

The International Theatre Schools Festival ITSelF is a theatre biennial, organized by The Aleksander Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art in Warsaw, Poland.

This year the festival will host performances, which dispute the traditional form of staging and resemble fashion show, ecological dance etudes or cookery performative actions. We believe that despite numerous political and financial obstacles all the invited artists will be able to join us. The audience and artists are changing and so is the theatre. The subject of this year festival conference is Change – now! The international debate will regard subjectivity of an actor, who stops being a passive executor of the director’s will, and becomes a co-participant in the creative process and an active player in the international cultural circulation.

The 10th edition of the ITSelF Festival will be held from 3rd till 8th of October 2019

The International festival of student theatre SETKÁNÍ/ENCOUNTER is the greatest event Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts has to offer, and maybe the biggest festival of student theatre in Europe.

SETKÁNÍ/ENCOUNTER is about meeting, sharing, learning and having fun together!
The festival presents the works of audiovisual departments of Theatre Faculty of Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno. This year’s edition is the second one and it hopes to bring even more attention to these departments and to the works of our students in general.

At the end of the year, ADK students are showing some of their work from the past year, celebrating the beginning of the summer and saying goodbye to the graduating class of 2019.
The festival is curated by dramaturgy students Lorena Biemann and Jan Pfannenstiel.
