In 2020, the International Theatre Forum “TEART” celebrates its 10th anniversary. On January 20, Belarus Open programme, which is annually formed by theatre critic Lyudmila Gromyko, starts accepting applications. Any Belarusian theatre, independent creative team or performer can apply for participation in the showcase. The main condition is that the premiere of the performance should have taken place in 2019–2020.
As an independent programme, Belarus Open exists since 2014. Critics, producers, directors and other theatre experts from around the world are invited to learn about the development of the Belarusian theatre. Belarus Open maintains a dialogue between professionals from near and far-abroad countries and forms the image of the Belarusian theatre at the international scene.
For participation in the programme we invite:
• state repertoire theatres, independent theatre companies, as well as artists and art groups working in the area of performing arts;
• performances of any genre and theatre movement: dramatic, musical, documentary, site-specific, dance theatre and puppet theatre, as well as interdisciplinary projects;
• projects premiered during 2019-2020, which have not previously participated in the Belarus Open programme.
If the premiere takes place after the end of the call for applications (but not later than June 1, 2020), the applicant must provide the concept of the performance, as well as indicate the expected date of the premiere.
An indispensable condition for participation in the competition is the ability to present a video recording of the spectacle/performance. In the application form, you must specify a link to the full recording of the performance. If there is no link, the video material should be submitted by any means available (for example, sent on a CD/DVD to the Centre at the address 220030, Minsk, 21 Internatsionalnaya St., Visual and Performing Arts Centre “ART Corporation”). If at the time of filling out the application the applicant has no video materials, indicate the date of the premiere or next performance in the column “Link to the video”.
Applications are accepted on the link through March 31, 2020.
