LUCKY TRIMMER seeks short pieces (Germany)


Open Call for choreographers and performance-makers: LUCKY TRIMMER seeks short pieces (Germany)
LUCKY you – it’s TRIMMER time! For its 26th edition, held at the prestigious SOPHIENSAELE theatre in the heart of Berlin-Mitte, LUCKY TRIMMER is seeking original short pieces.

LUCKY TRIMMER spotlights both emerging and established artists by showcasing a selection of works that are engaged with physicality, movement and performance. For each edition, its curatorial team selects short pieces that touch our hearts out of a pool of international applications and assembles them to form an extravagant feature-length program.

LUCKY TRIMMER stands between worlds by bridging the avant-garde and the mainstream and by combining artistic excellence with the lightness of entertainment. Their world revolves around contemporary dance but is open to all genres as long as the 3 LUCKY-rules are followed: be original, be bold and keep it under 10 minutes!

30 + 31 March 2018 (3 shows in total)
Technical Rehearsal: 29 March 2018

500 € per piece + accommodation (shared double occupancy) + a small financial contribution towards the coverage of travel (depending on budget).
Additionally we are working towards providing our featured artists with additional performance opportunities thanks to our network of co-production partners and collaborators (Hungary, Cyprus, Italy, Israel).

Our 10-minute-limit per piece is as always holy and non-negotiable! You will only have 1 hour to tech and space your piece on stage so keep your lighting and technical wishes simple.
