New competition for amateur stage artists
Amateur theatre or dance companies as well as individuals can take part in a Brussels competition that recognises the major contribution of these arts to the city
‘Flood of talent’
Anyone wishing to be considered for the prize – from stage directors to dancers to whole companies – must register by 18 June with Zinnema, an organisation that supports and provides space to amateur artists. Productions can be in Dutch, English or French.
A jury of stage arts professionals will announce a shortlist at the end of June. The productions that make the shortlist will each receive €2,000 and the chance to stage their work at Bozar in December, when the winner – as well as the winner of a public prize – will be announced.
“This competition is an ideal way to honour the flood of talent in this city,” said Smet, “and to reach people who are new to Brussels.”
