Open call for METROPOLIS
– site-specific performances / productions / projects for 2017 & 2018

Københavns Internationale Teater (KIT) launched Metropolis as a biennale in 2007. After five successful editions with some 75 productions for a public of more than 250,000, we are now programming Metropolis as an annual international season of site-specific work from April to October.

Where: Denmark

Deadline for applications: 15 January 2017

Metropolis is a platform for contemporary, innovative, performative work, often interdisciplinary, sometimes participatory and always connected with the city.

Formats include performance based (theatre, dance, performance, circus, music, sound) site-specific work, community and process based work, visual and media installations, performative architecture design, audio and staged walks. We operate on large scale with popular events, which capture the city, and also on micro scale with individual walks and one-to-one experiences.

Call for proposals

We are currently looking for artists and projects, which inscribe themselves in this context.
For 2017, we are focusing on existing works or worksproduced for 2017, which can be adapted to specific sites and contexts.
For 2018, we are also open to proposals for coproduction and co- commissioning and to develop concepts and ideas.

To apply please send us via (subject line: Metropolis 2017- 18) information regarding your practice/company, your work and the project you are proposing, including technical and budget details as far as possible.

Deadline 15 January 2017. We will let you know by 1 February for 2017 proposals and 1 March for 2018 proposals. If we

feel that it might be relevant and practically feasible, we will call you in for a talk to develop your proposal.

We often use residencies with artists to develop their work in the city/region.
