The modules are intended to enable young artists* and groups to better network and establish themselves both locally and internationally. This is intended to create space for experiments, to liberate quickly produced pieces from the pressure of expectations, and to facilitate long-term development work on the part of the production houses.

The collaborating venues make individual decisions about the organisation of FREISCHWIMMEN festivals, curated by themselves, or the invitation of individual productions to already existing festivals and thematic focuses. A touring festival as in former years will not take place anymore.

Round 2022/23
Following an open call, the houses selected the following artists* from a total of 264 applications in a joint decision-making process: 

Alex Franz Zehetbauer / brut Wien, Sterna | Pau / FFT Düsseldorf, Ceylan Öztrük / Gessnerallee Zürich, Lulu Obermayer / HochX München, Yolanda Morales / Schwankhalle Bremen, Göksu Kunak / SOPHIENSÆLE Berlin, Studio Urbanistan / LOFFT – DAS THEATER Leipzig, Donya Ahmadifar / Theater Rampe Stuttgart
