Spoffin OFF is the showcase part of the Spoffin Festival in Amersfoort (The Netherlands), an annual street arts festival with 25+ theatre, dance and circus companies from all over Europe. In 2023 Spoffin takes place from Friday evening, August 25 through Sunday afternoon, August 27.
Spoffin Festival consists of four parts:
You can apply to participate in the Spoffin OFF program from 1 January until 28 February 2023. A committee consisting of three festival programmers under supervision of artistic director Alfred Konijnenbelt will thoroughly study all the applications and make the selection. Final decisions will be made in March and are formalized in a contract.
The first selection will be mainly based upon artistical criteria: originality, expressiveness, professionalism and whether the work interacts with public space and the audience. Furthermore we have a strong preference for productions that are plug-and-play (self-supporting), can easily travel and use little or no text. Practical criteria like group size and travel costs can further influence the final selection.
Spoffin will do its outmost to organize an exceptionally good OFF programme, as a consequence the quality level of the selection is high. Please note that only a limited number (10-15) of artists/groups can participate in the Spoffin OFF program, due to limitations in space, time, production capacity and budget.
