ASSITEJ Austria is happy to announce the Next Generation program in the frame of the international theatre festival for young audiences SCHÄXPIR, which will take place from June 25th until July 5th 2015 in Linz, Upper Austria.


In 2015 the Next Generation program invites emerging artists (up to the age of 26) who are interested in

– developing their practice and ASSITEJ’s future

– finding new ways of artistic discourse

– exchanging national perspectives and fostering international relationships

– assuming artistic and discursive leadership in TYA

The Next Generation program at SCHÄXPIR covers food and tickets during the festival. Hotel and travel costs must be covered by the participants or possible sponsors.

Applicants must not be older than 26 years; the working language is English so sufficient English skills are of high importance.

Application deadline is April 15th, 2015.


The focus of the Next Generation’s participants are some of the more than 50 shows selected for SCHÄXPIR Festival. The shows will be discussed and related to further questions regarding TYA. The NG-group is asked to reflect ways of talking about performances, give feedback in artistic processes and develop quality in TYA in discourse. A detailed NG program will be published on by no later than May.
