The 12th Festival panoptikum - Information for Applicants

Even if it says after the former football coach Sepp Herberger: "After the festival is before the festival", let us now allow ourselves a creative break. Therefore we'll begin the selection process for our 12th panoptikum festival only in autumn 2020 (when Covid-19 allows travel again).

Applications are informal: please send us a link to a video trailer or a recording, as well as meaningful information about the production that you would like to submit.

Attention! We only accept applications from professional theatres for young audiences from European countries. And we only program performances for the age group 3+ to 10+.

The next festival will take place on six days in January or February 2022 - we will announce the exact date in due time.
