everything except the norm
Open calls

Bakelit announces its open calls each year for Hungarian and international companies, performers and fine artists providing space, infrastructure and an opportunity for them to introduce their work. Our goal is to offer a space of creation and performance for alternative, independent and experimental artists and to showcase quality performances without any restriction of genre.

We have the space for your creative ideas.

For the season 2019/2020 we would like to invite productions from our neighbours. Our aim is to strengthen the artistic connection and network between Hungary and all countries around it. Individual and group applications are welcome, there are no restrictions at all concerning the genre of submitted works. Not only thematically we want to break the country borders, but in best case also to achieve a cooperation between the surrounding cultural centers in order to enable international touring for the performing artists.

What Bakelit provides:

  • Stage and rehearsal rooms (for 3 days between Monday and Thursday)
  • Room and board (3 days/ 2 nights)
  • Technical equipment and staff
  • Publicity
  • Photo and video documentation of your presented show
  • Commission depending on ticket sales (according to agreement)
  • The possibility to network with Bakelit’s international partners all around Europe

Application process:

Please send the following documents to international@bmac.hu:

  • synopsis (min. 2000 characters)
  • detailed technical rider
  • the number of travelling people (even though the travelling costs can’t be covered by Bakelit MAC, but we can offer you a first assistance to find grants if needed)
  • video link (full performance if possible) + a short trailer
  • photo documentation (min. 2 high resolution pictures with credits)
