Blaagaard Teater is organising the international reading festival Pink Pavilion in May 2023 in collaboration with the development platform for new writing. Pink Pavilion is looking for playwrights who are interested in having an excerpt of their finished work read.
What is Pink Pavilion? Pink Pavilion is a festival where both Danish and international theatre artists can come together around new dramatic writing that gives us more angles on a shared, global world. The festival contributes to the internationalisation of the performing arts, where the performing arts community and the theatre industry can experience other cultures, have conventions, and learn about traditions. The festival will be held in a safe, relaxed and festive setting at Blaagaard Teater in Copenhagen and at Teater Katapult in Aarhus on 11, 12 and 13 May 2023.
An excerpt from your script will be chosen to suit a 30 minute staged reading. This extract will be translated into Danish and possibly English. The excerpt will be worked on in a 4-day rehearsal period with a director and up to 4 actors. Pink Pavilion will buy the rights for performing your play. The assignment is paid and the organisers cover your stay in Copenhagen and your transport costs.
This year’s theme is POWER, in all its forms: political, personal, human and social. The work you apply with must be connected in some way to the theme – it can be both in a literal sense or a loose association. The work you are applying with must have been performed previously or be in its completed form.
Deadline: 10 January 2023
