In this open call for international performances, we are looking for 3 theater, circus, dance or any other performance, in any language, at in: v z b l festival 2022. We encourage performances with an accessible language that can easily be understood by the audience, either verbally or non verbally. In this call, we specifically target art companies that share the values we have at Basca Theater and the in: v z b l festival, such as: solidarity, dialogue, respect and dignity. We expect artists to respect these values and take them into account when creating shows.
in: v z b l festival arose from the need to bring together artists from several fields, who could interact with various categories of audiences. This meeting aims to offer everyone (artists and the public) different perspectives of the reality around us. Our desire is to initiate a dialogue through which what is sometimes „invisible” in society can become visible, through art.
in: v z b l is a festival that aims to make visible what is invisible, promoting values such as dialogue, understanding, respect and solidarity. The voices of various vulnerable, „invisible” groups are often unheard or even unspoken. Through this festival we want to give these groups a voice and context to self-represent and make this voice stronger in the community. Diversity is an under-exploited wealth. Different cultures and different perspectives on reality are a learning opportunity for all of us, as long as we manage to put at the center of our interactions the values and principles that the festival affirms.
