Call for performances on the edges of experimental/new music and performance art

For our performances on the 16.9.2022 at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Kaistudio, we are looking for performances with a length of around 30-40 min. The pieces should fit into the concept of our festival, which is based on two keystones: performance art and experimental music. Please describe how your project is situated between these art forms or how it touches them.


We are very much interested in performances working with confrontation with or integration of the audience, but are also open for any other concepts and ideas.


Please keep in mind that there will be only be about 1,5-2 hours of installation time on the same day for your project, and check out the Kaistudio (tech rider, photos etc.)


If the piece already exists please send us documentation material (video, photos, possibly scores or sim. etc.).

If the piece does not exist yet you can send us a description of your plans for the call and work it out after your proposal got chosen.


The chosen projects will receive 1.000€ production costs (including fees+travelling expenses)


Deadline: 1.4.2022 (12pm CET) correction: 12am=midnight of the 1.4.2022, the full day still counts
