Schöne Aussicht / Bright View 2020: Next Generation Residency 2020 (Germany)


Every two years Junges Ensemble Stuttgart hosts the festival Bright View, a showcase of ground-breaking international theatre for young audiences in Stuttgart as well as the platform for regional theatres working in this field to share their work and develop their artistic and communication practice.

10 international performances, 7 shows from the region of south-west Germany as well as 2 international co-productions of the hosting theatre Junges Ensemble Stuttgart will form the artistic festival programme. The discourse programme tackles questions of representation and discrimination in the theatre for young audiences. Who speaks? Whose stories are told? How do we create images, characters and rhetoric without reproducing discriminatory or racist conditions? How do we incorporate these concepts into our artistic and aesthetic work as well as into the structures of theatres and companies?

The organisers invite 10 people (18-35 years), living and working in Europe, to participate in the Next Generation Residency 2020. The scholarships address young artists and students of the performing arts (dramaturgs, directors, actors, puppeteers, dancers, performers, stage and costume designers, musicians or theatre educationalists) with a specific interest in theatre for young audiences.

The scholarship covers tickets for 14 performances in the festival, accommodation during the festival (shared rooms in a hostel), food at the festival centre, partial subsidy for travel expenses (max. 100€ p.p.), and coordination and coaching by an experienced theatre maker. The working language will be English.


Aged between 18 and 35 years old.
Working or studying in the performing arts in Europe and have an interest in theatre for young audiences.
Available to be in Stuttgart/ Germany 20-27 June 2020 to partake in the residency.
