Pink Pavilion festival is looking for playwrights from Finland, France and Germany who are interested in having an excerpt of their finished work read at the festival in Copenhagen and Aarhus, Denmark, from 11 to 13 May 2023. 

Pink Pavilion is a festival where both Danish and international theatre artists can come together around new dramatic writing that gives 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 at Blaagaard Teater in Copenhagen and at Teater Katapult in Aarhus from 11 to 13 May 2023. 

What Pink Pavilion programme involves

An excerpt from the selected scripts will be chosen for 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 the play. 

The assignment is paid and it covers the stay in Copenhagen and transport costs. 

Application details

This year's theme is POWER, in all its forms; political, personal, human and social. The work must be connected in some way to the theme. The work must have been performed previously or be in its completed form. 

It is possible to write the application in the applicant’s native language, but the preference is for applications in English.
