2021 is the 20th anniversary year of the Poetry Week festival, and in its honor we had opened an “Idea-Search” for new, multi-art poetry performances designed especially for the stage.

The purpose of the “Idea-Search” is to get 2-5 premiere performances for the festival on November 5th – 14th, 2021.

Interested have ordered the “Idea-search” instructions by email from the Poetry Week association. Participants are sending their idea’s written application in accordance with the instructions to Poetry Week association by email no later than Monday 1st of March 2021.

The proposals for the idea search will be reviewed with the Poetry Week association and experts in theater and dance. The selected working groups will be notified of the decisions no later than Monday, 8th of March 2021. If there are any ambiguities in the interesting proposals that affect the selection, we can contact the responsible person indicated in the application form earlier.

All those who submit their proposals by the deadline will also be informed of their non-selection this time, but no further feedback can be given to the proposals and no separate reasons can be given for non-selection.

The performances selected through this “Idea-Search” are only part of next November’s festival program. As before, we search for and select individual poets and groups of performers within the framework of normal performance fees and expenses. Poetry performances should therefore continue to be offered to us throughout the spring, even if they do not fit into the framework of this Idea-Search. We also continue to contact with poets ourselves during the spring and summer.
