Throughout the kicks! festival weekend, the Dampfzentrale site will be transformed into a giant play area. A world of adventure for children and meeting places for adults are planned in cooperation with the Chinderchübu Bern kids’ centre.
Various discussions and networking meetings for professional audiences – organised jointly with Assitej, Reso Dance Network and Pro Helvetia – will be held in Bern as part of the kicks! festival.
On Saturday 21 May, there will be a Pro Helvetia-hosted round table discussion with catering and a party afterwards in the Dampfzentrale studio from 17:15 to 18:45. The expert exchange will revolve around the question “What does quality in the field of young audiences mean in programming?”. Five short contributions by artistic directors and the Institute of Theatre Studies Bern will set the mood for the discussion.
On Sunday 22 May, discussion rounds about the five kicks! productions are planned in the Turbinensaal of the Dampfzentrale between 13:30 and 14:50. In the format of a “production speed-dating”, each table will feature a kicks! group as well as a jury member of the festival. The programmers will then be allowed to enter into an exchange with each of them in a 15-minute time slot.
