Open call Playground 2022

Your chance to perform at Korzo!

Playground is an initiative of Korzo, theatre and production house for movement in the city centre of The Hague: “We want to give future artists the opportunity to shake up the performing arts scene with new ideas and give them a place to present themselves to a broader audience in a professional venue. Whether they learned their skills on the streets or at an academy, everybody is welcome.” – Gemma Jelier, general director of Korzo.

The first live edition of Playground is scheduled for 30 April 2022. With Playground, Korzo in The Hague, gives emerging artists in the performing arts & music a chance to show their work to a curious audience on a professional stage. Korzo accepts applications by artists in dance, circus, music, spoken word and physical theatre who are able to present a piece on a 10 x 10 m stage with a maximum of 15 minutes.

You will get the opportunity to perform at the Korzo theatre in The Hague, a performance fee and technical support. Next to that, Korzo is setting up a large crowdfunding campaign to offer participants many extra’s. These can include: rehearsal space, costumes, professional light design, dramaturgic advice, registration of the work, portfolio, second performance day, and maybe even more!
