30 March - 5 April 2009, Zagreb, Croatia. Application deadline: 15-22 December 2008
The 9th Festival of Student Theatre and Multimedia Test! will take place from March 30th till April 5th in Zagreb, Croatia. It will consist of theatre, multimedia and music programme, various workshops and discussions.
The theme of the upcoming festival is communication.
The development of the growing technical, media, sensor and multisensor structures, systems and languages provided as communication “tools”, has motivated us to study and question their extensions, possibilities and boundaries. We would also like to inquire relations between specific communication systems, their differentiations and incompatibilities as well as the by-products that are results of this relations.
The theme of the festival is not of constraining nature but is ment to animate and inspire your projects that are in process of creation. The main criteria for the selection will be, as in the previous years, the quality of the work, dedication to explore your own creative potential and social engagement inherent to artistic creations of students (youth).
Starting this year Test! decided to add new parts to the program – music and dance.
It is possible to apply with theatre plays, performances (performing arts), multimedia projects (photography, drawing, painting, film, video, animation, cyber art, public art, urban intervention, happening, action, sound), any form of musical performances (concerts, live-acts, dj sets, performances, installations) and dance (dance shows, performances, dance installations). Participants can be students, young non afirmated artists, professionals or amateurs.
Deadline for submission: 15th of December 2008 for performing arts and multimedia projects and 22nd of December 2008.
