We have decided to continue with our format Raw Matters - Large and Long in December at the studios of Arbeitsplatz Wien (Siegfriedgasse 23, Tor 1, 1210 Wien), giving more space and time to artists whose experiments might not fit on the stage of Schikaneder.

The format:

Raw Matters - Large and Long will take place in the whole space of Arbeitsplatz where the audience will be free to choose which performances and installations it wants to watch. Stage pieces will take place in the large studio (9m x 14m)As usual there will be the possibility to exchange and develop ideas with the audience and other artists while enjoying food and drinks.

Terms and Conditions:

Raw Matters prioritizes experiments and unfinished work.

Stage pieces:
Necessity of a large space should be apparent in the application
few technical requirements

installations/durational performances:
maximum 4 hours long
few technical requirements or the possibility of providing own technical support
no claim for undivided audience attention

All artists will be given 160 Euros as a contribution towards expenses.
