Open Call: DISKURS 17 - International festival for young art and science
DISKURS 17 is a festival for young artists, scientists and theoreticians, organised by students of the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Gießen. The 32nd edition of the international festival will take place from the 11th - 15th of October 2017: for five days, art science and theory will step into an interdisciplinary exchange with each other.
DISKURS 17 is a call to plunge: into works from all over the world, into a pool of interested artists, down to unknown depths. DISKURS 17 wants to build a big basin in which every person can swim his or her own style. The festival will be co-created space, an island that is a port of call for swimmers and divers. A centre from which waves travel out and to which they crash back into.
DISKURS 17 is looking for artistic and scientific works that deal with and discuss immersive structures and alternative forms of perception to rethink the position of the audience, explore one's own awareness and bring personal experiencing into focus. Be a part of the cluster and fill the basin with installations, performances, dances, speeches, durationals, readings, films, panel discussions, interdisciplinary works, lecture performances and works of fine art.
