For the fifth time, Pro Helvetia and the Avignon Festival launch a call for applications for the «Séminaire en Avignon».

Each summer, the Medieval city of Avignon is the venue of one of the most important performing arts festivals in the world. As part of the event, young theatre and dance practitioners from a wide array of countries are given the opportunity to participate in an intensive seminar programme offering full immersion in the world of contemporary stage art. The 6th edition of this international project for emerging stage practitioners will take place from 13 to 21 July 2018 and is again jointly organised by the Avignon festival and Pro Helvetia.

Applications from Switzerland are to be submitted by 15 March 2018 at the latest via www.myprohelvetia.ch.
