Bridging the Scenes

Bridging the Scenes is a network consisting of the ACT Festival (Sofia/Bulgaria), Malá Inventura (Prague/Czech Republic), Selected Works (Copenhagen and Aarhus/Denmark) and the Berlin Performing Arts Festival. Its focus is the establishment of a sustainable connection between the communities of the independent performing arts in the four European capitals. All participating festivals and organizations increase the visibility of their local community and actively draw attention to the cultural policy dimension of working independently. Reciprocal visits by artists and culture managers from all of the cities promote solidarity and professional discussions of current aesthetics, societal and artistic discourses as well as cultural policy.

For this year’s edition of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival, a delegation of artists, producers and cultural policy representatives will travel to the German capital. Together, they will become acquainted with the local aesthetics and developments over the course of attending performances, visit performance venues in Berlin and will be able to represent themselves over the course of numerous networking meetings.
