Fancy a visit? We are looking for dance and performance artists

The networking format "&friends: Besuch" supports the exchange and initiation of collaborations between performing artists from different regions of Germany and is made possible by the solidarity-based association FESTIVALFRIENDS", a network of regional festivals of the independent performing arts. It is both a laboratory for artistic production and an engine for long-term supraregional networking, as well as a platform for strengthening nationwide structures of the independent scenes.

In the summer of 2022, HAUPTSACHE FREI #8 will give freelance dance and performance artists* from Germany the opportunity to attend the eighth edition of the festival with a fellowship.

The invited artists* will have the opportunity to explore this year's artistic productions of Hamburg's independent scene. They will come together as a group at a joint warm-up followed by breakfast, share experiences and interact with each other in various workshops. In addition, they will be brought into contact with artists and organizers of the local scene.
