Every two years Junges Ensemble Stuttgart hosts the festival Bright View: a showcase of ground-breaking international theatre for young audiences in Stuttgart as well as the platform for regional theatres working in this field to share their work and develop their artistic and communicatory practise. 10 international performances, 7 shows from the region of south-west Germany as well as 2 international co-productions of the hosting theatre Junges Ensemble Stuttgart will form the artistic festival programme.

Next Generation Recidency

The festival invites 10 people (18-35 years), living and working in Europe, to participate in the NEXT GENERATION RESIDENCY 2020. The scholarships address young artists and students of the performing arts (dramaturgs, directors, actors, puppeteers, dancers, performers, stage and costume designers, musicians or theatre educationalists) with specific interest in theatre for young audiences. The Next Generation residents will watch 14 international performances, reflect and discuss what they have seen, partake in the discourse programme of the festival, share questions and thoughts on the theatre for young audiences in Europe with established theatre makers, experience a week full intense discussions, delicious food, excursions and flittering celebrations and write a manifesto, a vision for the future, maybe a Utopian idea.

What’s part of the scholarship?

Tickets for 14 performances in the festival, accommodation during the festival (shared rooms in a hostel), food at the festival centre, partial subsidy for travel expenses (max. 100€ p.p.) and coordination and coaching by an experienced theatre maker. The working language will be English.
