"Performing Arts made in Germany" Showcase at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Although country-specific showcases have a long tradition at many events, including the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, a joint, publicly funded presence of companies/artists from Germany is entirely new.

The showcase is therefore a special pilot project aimed at promoting "Performing Arts made in Germany" on the international market.

Participating companies/artists as well as the performing arts scene in Germany will receive more visibility through the joint framework of a showcase and the related joint application. In addition, the financial assistance provided, communication with venues and the transfer of knowledge and contacts established as part of this undertaking will be a unique support for the participating companies/artists.

The Showcase is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM).
