  • Description

    Description

    We have a FULL team for summer 2021!
    Thanks everybody for your support!


    We are an independent performance theater of the modern times which is organizing theatrefestival in Rhein/ Main region in Germany. If you are interested in theatre, music, dance, performance and all that it takes to realize that, then this is the place for you to be!

    Culture for all, we are registered charity -which organises an annual theatre festival in public space.

    Our tasks and goals: to create multifunctional cultural spaces and to act within them. We dare a socially open experiment: the exchange of free and applied art in public and communicative places in Frankfurt.. And this also includes the festival project.

    This year for the 20th time the festival will take place, that vibrant yet chilled international theatre -festival on the riverside , with an elaborate and eclectic program of cultural and artistic events. Frankfurt will be magically transformed – the place in Frankfurt will be turned into a poetic parallel universe, a place for discovering, enjoying, exchange and inspiration.

    The program is already full and packed with wonderful stuff: national and international acts and performances of theatre in open spaces, live music, singer-/songwriter, Poetry Slam, Readers Corner, Open Air Cinema, Free-Cabaret-Space, Workshops, Trainings, the Market and – if Corona rules loosen up, tasty foods and delicious drinks.

    About our summer festival: From an almost empty space to a vibrant festival with art acts, theatre tent, beduine-tent, life music and various stages – someone`s got to do that…During the festival there is help appreciated in front of the stage as well as behind: taking care of the artists, catering, headset-disco, sound and light... and afterwards, everything should be built down again!

    This year we won’t be able to offer more than 40 places for volunteers due to the pandemic restrictions. This is why we decided to give the chance to people who are interested not only in a cultural and social exchange, but also in theatre, in our projects, and last but not least, who are interested in community living!

    Furthermore, we are looking for competent and enthusiastic people could like to take over some duties, e.g you could get responsibility of a main area to lead groups of volunteers as well as you could share your ideas and enthusiasm!
    The people organising the festival are living in a community, living an alternative lifestyle. You will be living and working together with the performers/actors collective. During our festival we expect around 100 Volunteers, helpers and artists from around the world living in our house. At the festival place there will additionaly be 300 volunteers from Frankfurt helping us out.

    Accommodation

    We are a community living together. It’s important to be considerate to each others, clean up after ourself and leave community areas nice and tidy. We ask for 5 hours of help, five days a week, two days off in exchange for food and board. For every following week count the same. Every day breakfast is taken in our house kitchen and for lunch and dinner we have a big VIP tent on our festival area or at our house.

    You will be living together with the ensemble at the collective space in Frankfurt, about 20 min from Frankfurt Main station by public transport. Living and working in community are essential components in this working camp and the festival is the main angle: You will be welcome to help, dance, cook, celebrate, wonder, grow and exchange.
    Also possible are excursions to the nearby cities of Mainz, Cologne or Heidelberg.

Theatre is brought back where it comes from and belongs to - into the heart of our society, into public spaces, for everyone to see and get involved.
