NACHWACHSEN? – Was brauchen Künstler*innen am Anfang ihrer Laufbahn? (COMING UP? – What do artists* need at the beginning of their careers?)

As part of west off
FFT Düsseldorf & Cheers for Fears
Eintritt frei!

Here you can find the complete west off programm (9. – 11. jan 2020).

What are up-and-coming artists, actually? Do they grow automatically – and if so, towards what? North Rhine-Westphalia boasts numerous successful initiatives to support a young generation within the independent performing arts. What do those programs mean to artists at the outset of their careers? How do they connect with national initiatives? And what perspectives open if one does no longer count among the “up-and-comings”? On the occasion of the 10thedition of west off – Theaternetzwerk Rheinland, we will discuss new aesthetics and sustainable collaborations with artists, producers and supporters.

With CHEERS FOR FEARS, an initiative was launched in 2013 with the aim of intensifying the exchange between the young artists* of NRW and their academies and stimulating artistic cooperation. The founding impulse of the initiative resulted from the desire to exchange work strategies, aesthetics and perspectives across universities and disciplines.
