This year, we will again be handing over our stage to young people. Now it’s your turn! We give you the space, the stage and a platform to become active in an artistic way. In line with our festival theme “shifting”, we are looking for fun, creative, empowering and moving contributions that change perspectives and shift perceptions.
We are looking for
Young people from 13 to 20 years old
Amateurs as individuals or in group project.
>> Registration possible until 7th October 2022
Alleyne Dance (UK), will premiere a new dance piece, in Dampfzentrale in October 2023. They are looking to find a supporting cast made up of non-professional movers recruited from the local community. The company is coming to Bern in September 2022 to offer taster workshops for their new piece, Far From Home. The sessions will be fun, energetic and for people of all abilities, with and without disabilities and of all ages (12-100!) No prior knowledge in contemporary dance is needed, just a passion and excitement for movement is required.
The PREMIO Young Artists’ Prize is awarded on the basis of a call for entries (deadline 01.10.2022). It offers young performing artists a national platform where they can present their projects to theatres, dance companies and festivals and make important contacts (kick-off event 21.01.2023).
All eight companies receive a co-production contribution, a residency and further support within the framework of PREMIO Spring. In addition, PREMIO promotes touring activities throughout Switzerland and ensures that the exciting projects of the up-and-coming companies can be discovered by PREMIO members throughout the PREMIO Season. During the PREMIO Visits, the companies get the opportunity to see the works of their colleagues.
