The BRIGHT TALK: BRIGHT CURATION?! for (inter)national festival organizers

“International Theatre Festival”, but guest performances mainly from neighboring European countries. A public tender and review of over 100 video submissions. Rising hotel and catering costs, falling fundings, inflation and scarcity of resources.
How can an international festival be organized at the moment? How often and how far do we still travel to view live? Is it in proportion to spend much more money on airfare than on fees? Who decides for whom? And what if fifa blocks all advertising space in the city?

We discuss current challenges of festival curation with representatives of this year’s curation team and festival office of SCHÖNEN AUSSICHT, the Goethe-Institut and (inter)national festival organizers.
