Next Generation Workspace

next generation workspace – international research residency

In cooperation with Künstlerhaus Mousonturm and Theaterhaus Frankfurt, the children’s theatre festival “Starke Stücke” is offering an international residency in three phases in the field of theatre for young audiences. Twelve international theatre makers, independent artists from the region as well as students of the Hessian Theatre Academy (HTA) interested in working in this field are invited to attend the festival “Starke Stücke”. During their stay, the group will visit shows, meet artists and colleagues and develop initial ideas for project proposals of their own, which they continued to work on at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm during the next residency phase in summer. These projects will be further developed in a third residency phase and then finally presented to the public at the next “Starke Stücke” festival.

Soon there will be more information about the projects by the young artists of next generation workspace 2017/18 which are going to be shown during "Starke Stücke" 2018.
