Bridging the Scenes

The Bulgarian performing arts festival ACT Independent Theater Festival (Sofia, Bulgarian) and the Berlin Performing Arts Festival are coming closer together!

Bridging the Scenes presents three Bulgarian and three Berlin based producers, production managers and/or artists who have an interest in organization and administration from Sofia and Berlin with the opportunity to attend both festivals.

The schedule of programming allows the participants to get to know each other as well as the respective local community and the local funding bodies relevant for future collaborations.

During the entire time of the festival, all participants will explore the aesthetics and working methods in each country. They will attend the discussion events in the schedule of programming for visiting industry professionals and benefit from the diverse networking opportunities, entering into exchange with the independent performing arts communities of both Berlin and Sofia.
A local expert will guide them through the experience and support their exchanges and networking.
