Show | real is looking for artists who are passionate explorers of digital or hybrid formats of events. You are free to choose – either a video call, game, audio or mute performance, walk with a camera, party or anything else. The distinctive feature of our
programme show|real is an audience voting-system. After preselection by ongoing project,
there will be nine concepts ready for the voting run. Being a collective of decision-making,
the audience can choose which events will be performed in our programme. The voting
ticketsales system will check out the three crowd-pleasers for the final, that will be paid
3000€ production budget to realize the commission work.

show | real is open for happenings, a show or a party that pop the corks. How about
having a party for a local feast day together, a common play, a mute performance, a happening with cameras celebrating glocality? The formats are neither confined nor obligatorily interactive. You can explore aspects of ‘the show’ and revel being simultaneously

show | real wants to make glocality come alive. What is your city and neighbourhood
engaged in? Which local specifics do I want to share with others and link to a global
perspective? What can I hear, make tangibly available for my audience and realise in a
gripping happening? We want to connect to each other during the performance, connecting a local and global audience. Let’s go glocal: show | real needs your ideas for a playful
get-together performance programme.
