Fri 22 Jun 2018

Are you a beginning artist full of inspiration?
Do you have a plan, idea or concept that you wish to fulfill?
This is your chance to take the first step towards the realization of your project.

Het TheaterFestival and social office for artists, Amplo, support young talents in the performing arts. That’s why we are looking for fresh concepts of beginning and graduated artists from various backgrounds: theatre, dance, slam, performance, writing… Everything is possible!

The best concept for a show, performance, text… wins the Roel Verniers Prize 2018. The prize consists of:

  • a coproduction prize of 6.000 euro
  • the invitation to show the realization of the concept on the next edition of het TheaterFestival 2019 in Ghent.
  • business support from Amplo during a whole year.

How does it work?
You can email your plan, idea or concept in max. 1 A4 or in a video of max. 1,5 minute together with your resumé to info@theaterfestival.be. Deadline: Wednesday July 25.

The ideas are thoroughly read by a jury, which consists of among others Manuel Haezebrouck (CAMPO) and Liesje De Smet (Amplo). They nominate the top 8 concepts. On Monday August 6, they will announce the nominees.

During het TheaterFestival (August 30 until September 9 in Antwerp) the 8 nominees are able to present their concept on Tuesday September 5 at De Studio. The same evening the winner of the Roel Verniers Prize will be announced. Both presentations and award ceremony are accessible for the public.

Good luck!
