Sunday: Pitch of Plans

11:00-13:00h. Artists will get the opportunity to present plans for new work for next year and beyond in the Pitch of Plans for an audience of festival organizers from all over Europe.

In a maximum of 3 minutes artists can tell, beam, project, let us hear or show what the audiences can expect next year. After the Pitch we will organize a ‘meet while we eat’ with all artists and professionals. In this way artists can attract co-producers, residencies, early buyers or gigs.

Proposals for the Pitch of Plans are possible by sending a mail to Marjolein Pesch via pitch@spoffin.nl before the 30th of July. Please use this mail to explain what you want to present and how. We will present a maximum of 15 pitches and will try to present a wide range of different ideas.

Pitchers please register here and select the ‘I’m a pitcher’ field
