“IMPLANT& friends: Visit” is an exchange and networking format
of the association of regional festivals of free performing arts, consisting of Performing Arts Festival (Berlin), 6 tage frei (Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg), Hauptsache Frei (Hamburg), RODEO (Munich), Theaterfestival FAVORITEN (Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia) and since 2018 IMPLANTIEREN (Frankfurt a.M., Rhein-Main Region).
The networking format serves the exchange and initiation of cooperation between female performing artists from different regions of Germany. It is both a laboratory for artistic production and a motor for long-term supra-regional networking as well as a platform for strengthening nationwide structures of the independent scenes. In 2020, the performance festival IMPLANTIEREN will give female freelance dance and performance artists from Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, North Rhine-Westphalia, Baden-Württemberg and the Rhine region the opportunity to present their work.
Main area the possibility to attend the fourth edition of the IMPLANTING festival with a scholarship.
At “IMPLANTIEREN& friends: Besuch” a total of six invited female artists will have the opportunity to explore the Frankfurt performance scene. They will come together as a group at the joint breakfast, in the events of the supporting programme and at performance visits, share experiences and exchange ideas in a workshop. In addition, they will be put in contact with actors and organizers from the local scene.
This year’s “IMPLANTIEREN& friends: Visit” focuses on site-specific work and poses the question of the possibilities of solidarity between art and urban activist practices. This will be examined in an exemplary manner with this year’s edition of IMPLANTIEREN.
This format is made possible by the solidarity-based association “Festivalfriends”, a network of regional festivals of the liberal performing arts.
