Interkunst e.V. (Berlin) is looking for young performing artists for their upcoming theatre and music tour ”INSTANT ACTS against violence and racism”. The project takes place in Germany, Italy and lasts from the beginning of September until the end of October 2015. We are looking for individuals and duos (age between 17 and 30), who are active in theatre, dance, music, circus (no aerial acts), x-sport, etc. We want to create an international ensemble of 15 talented and creative people who are open for new experiences. The artists will come from different cultural backgrounds and represent various types of performance art: „from hip hop till classic“. Together we strive to make audiences aware of the different faces of violence and racism. Through interactive workshops, workshops presentation and a high quality performance the project aims to motivate young people to lead active and creative lives. “INSTANT ACTS” works effectively against prejudices, violence and racism.
Invited artists will be requested to bring pre-prepared short performances for the project (max 10 min), based on their personal experiences and ideas concerning the subject matter (against violence and racism). During the short rehearsal process prior to the tour, we will work together as a group to create original pieces as well. With the help of an artistic director, all the elements will then be brought together to create one professional touring show (75 min). Once on tour the artists will lead theatre, dance. music (etc.) workshops for local youth. The morning workshops will be followed by an afternoon show. We will present our project in schools, theatres, cultural-centres and youth prisons. Travel, board, lodging and a salary are provided for every artist. We will inform per email about the amount of the salary everyone who is interested in the participation.

1. Personal data: name, date of birth, nationality.
