Mysteries & Drolls EU Showcase 2021


Call out for applications to the second (online)

International Showcase of the Mysteries and Drolls project

brought to you by Festival of Fools, Belfast, UK.



In February 2021 Festival of Fools will host the second International Showcase of the Mysteries and Drolls project seeking to revive the European Popular Theatre, rediscovering ancient street theatre and the role of the buffoon through the contemporary theater work. We have closed the artists & companies applications the 16th January 2021 with 97 applications from 22 european countries. The proposals came from the sectors like street theatre, puppetry, contemporary circus, contemporary dance, performance. 25 of these will be selected for the showcase.


What is the showcase?
The showcase is an online industry event, an opportunity for programmers to see street theatre work and for artists to meet programmers. The aim is to create programming opportunities for festivals, and bookings for artists. The showcase will be attended by at least 30 international programmers from a range of European countries who will each be seeking to book at least one show from those featured.


When will it happen?
The showcase will be presented by Festival of Fools on the 24th and 25th February 2021, from approximately 10am to 3pm each day (UK time). If selected as Artist or Company, you will need to participate in half a day of online activity with us on one of these days. If selected as Festival Organiser or Programmer, you can stay with us for the entire two-day program. There will be the opportunity for programmers to network together informally and participate in group discussion. We are working hard to make the days as varied and engaging as possible.


What is involved?
During the event we will be screening trailers of the selected shows, and the show creators will take part in a hosted Q&A attended by festival directors and programmers. For Artists & Companies: One-person shows receive a fee of € 100,00 for participating, duos receive € 200,00 and trios receive € 300,00. For programmers: The first 30 organisations to register for a place will receive a contribution of € 100,00 after they have attended the event and completed a very short survey.


What are we looking for?
Artists & Companies: We are looking for shows created by performers from all European countries, but we particularly welcome applications from the project partner countries: Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland and the UK. We are looking for one-person shows, duos and trios only. The senior creative teams of Festival of Fools and Open Street aisbl (Bruxelles) will choose which shows will be included in the showcase. Festival & Programmers: Two of the aims of the M&D project are to create opportunities for artists and to support artists’ mobility. We therefore hope that each organiser will book at least one of the acts they see in the showcase for work in the future. Only festivals who pay artists are eligible to participate.


Who can apply?
Artists & Companies. To be eligible for selection you must meet the following criteria:
1. Your work must be in line with the artistic aims of the project. We welcome contemporary and traditional work equally.
2. Your 2 – 3 minute trailer must be of good technical quality, so that we can see and hear your show clearly. It should feature one show, not lots of different shows.
3. You must be available to attend the online Q&A on 24 or 25 February 2021.
4. Your show must be ready to tour from April 2021 at the latest.
Festival & Programmers: We welcome programmers from all European countries, but we are particularly keen to hear from festivals from the project partner countries: Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland and the UK.


Deadline: Registration for Programmers opens on 19th January and close on 17th February 2021


Do you have the requirements to participate? What are you waiting for?!!! Go immediately to the registration page and submit your application as programmer.

OPEN STREET TUBE, European Performing Art Video Archive

The meeting place for live performances buyers and sellers !!

UPLOAD your productions and highlight them in OPEN STREET TUBE, to propose them on festivals across Europe.

TAKE PART in periodical International Showcase, in order to test ONLINE the interest of operators in your artistic proposals.

To OPEN the city gates to performing arts means to bring out the value of open air spaces assigned to social life, to enforce the cohesion inside communities, to improve the local tourist activity, to create new routes for exchange and integration between European countries.

The creation of a international debate, the comparisons between normative and laws, different urban patterns and policies for development and support of performing arts, will drive to a new consciousness and will produce new stimulus in administrators and art operators. This route could not be undertaken on a simple regional or local level. Our country, now, is Europe!
