Increasing Collaboration: Theatre for Young People in Europe

 

An IETM Research Project

 

In September and October 2014, I undertook a research trip to Belgium, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands to investigate opportunities for exchange and collaboration for artists working in the Australian theatre for young people sector.

 

The project allowed me to gain a significant understanding of the key players, touring circuits, fee ranges, preferred aesthetic and values of the festivals, venues and companies making and presenting work in these regions.

 

The trip was extraordinary - allowing me to meet brilliant people and see a huge array of work - and I visited the following places: Austria (Vienna), Germany (Frankfurt, Mannheim, Stuttgart, Berlin and Munster), Belgium (Brussels, Hasselt, Leuven, Ghent, Antwerp, Turnhout) and the Netherlands (Den Haag, Amsterdam, Utrecht).

 

Detail of my trip - including a market overview, details on key players, and a list of major European festivals - is available in the following report.
