11.05.23 – 13.05.23
Looking for playwrights and dramatic texts from Finland, France and Germany (or playwrights related to these countries)!
Blaagaard Teater is organising the international reading festival Pink Pavilion in May 2023 in collaboration with the development platform for new writing. Pink Pavilion is looking for playwrights who is interested in having an excerpt of their finished work read.
What is Pink Pavilion? Pink Pavilion is a festival where both Danish and international theatre artists can come together around new dramatic writing that gives us more angles on a shared, global world. The festival contributes to the internationalisation of the performing arts, where the performing arts community and the theatre industry can experience other cultures, have conventions and learn about traditions. The festival will be held in a safe, relaxed and festive setting at Blaagaard Teater in Copenhagen and at Teater Katapult in Aarhus on 11, 12 and 13 May 2023.
Practical framework An excerpt from your script will be chosen to suit a 30 minute staged reading. This extract will be translated into Danish and possibly English. The excerpt will be worked on in a 4- day rehearsal period with a director and up to 4 actors. Pink Pavilion will buy the rights for performing your play. The assignment is paid and we cover your stay in Copenhagen and your transport costs.

Pink Pavilion er Blaagaard Teaters årlige reading festival for international dramatik. Festivalen præsenterer international og dansk dramatik instrueret og fremført af en blanding af nye og erfarne kunstnere fra det danske scenekunstmiljø.
Pink Pavilion er en festival for både publikum, skuespillere, instruktører og dramatikere. Alle mødes omkring den nye dramatik, som giver os nye vinkler på en fælles, global verden. Festivalen bidrager til internationaliseringen af dansk scenekunst, dels ved at præsentere anderledes tekster og kunstnere end man normalt kan opleve på den danske teaterscene, dels ved at facilitere møder mellem de inviterede internationale dramatikere og deres danske kollegaer.
