The BRIK team proudly presents the 5th edition of Brabants Internationaal Kinderfestival.

This edition we open a call for agents, impresario’s, curators and programmers in the performing arts field to apply for our delegates program. The festival is happy to announce registration for delegates to visit the festival from the 5th until the 11th of June. There is a focus on the period from the 5th until the 9th of June 2019.

BRIK festival is a bi-annual performing arts festival for children that is organized in Breda, the Netherlands. The festival is the only festival in Europe that focuses on ambiguous, non-verbal shows for children in the age of 0 to 12 years. Accessible performances that take time and space, dare to stand still and form a counterbalance for the relentless speed of the entertainment industry.

This year the festival presents 26 performances for young audiences. We present work from 10FINGERS – Iceland | Bunk Puppets – Australia | Cas Public – Canada | Motionhouse – England | Kwatta – The Netherlands | Philippe Saire – Switzerland | Voldaan – The Netherlands
and many others.

There is a focus that gives delegates an opportunity to see Dutch work and broaden their network to program it in their theatre’s and festivals. Click here for a program overview.

The core activities of the festival consists of:

  • An international programming for children in the age of 0 to 12 years with public performances and school performances in theatres and on location.
  • Performances of Dutch work that has the potential to be programmed abroad.
  • A talent development program that provides a quality boost to the range of non-verbal productions for children in the age of 0 to 6 years. Produced by Maas, Schippers&VanGucht en de Stilte.

BRIK offers:

  • Tickets for all shows;
  • A personal guide during the festival;
  • Dinners with collegues from the performing arts industry;
  • A reception with Dutch companies;
  • Accomodation;
  • Visit at Theater Artemis in ’s-Hertogenbosch en Schippers&VanGucht in Breda;
  • A series of blind dates. The blind dates are meant to get to know people who are outside your network and who are highly unlikely to meet.

We can offer these facilities to 20 delegates. We can invite one person from an organisation. The selection will be announced 10th of may.



Playwriting workshop with Simon Stephens

23-­‐24 June 2019

Promoted: by Lyra Teatro


TheArtLand Fabbrica del Vapore, lotto 10 Via Giulio Cesare Procaccini 4, 20154, Milan.

Here’s the link to the facebook event:

“We need stories again. In a time of poverty, we need our storytellers do their work properly. It is only through lightness, fun and anarchy that we can really investigate the darkest areas of human existence. So we investigate horror with lightness and play.”

After the great workshop we hosted last June, with attendees from Italy, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, USA and Poland, and after the great success of his play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-­‐Time, viewed by over 20000 people at the Elfo Puccini Theatre, Simon Stephens will be back at The Art Land (Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan) for another two-­‐day workshop.

The great British playwright (one of the most prominent in the last 20 years!) will continue what he started in last year’s workshop, sharing his personal and fascinating perspective on playwriting with exercises and food for thought for group discussions, and focusing on stories and the need for irony, surprise and honesty. It is a unique opportunity, for beginners and experienced writers alike, to study with a brilliant and engaging master really passionate about his job.

“Thoughts, laughs, notes and inspirations from the workshop are still frequently in my head. As per Simon’s definition of nostalgia (something from the past which was interrupted and we wish would continue), I already feel nostalgic.” ― one of the attendees from last year’s workshop. 

The number of participants is limited to 15 and the workshop will be held in English: a C1 written and oral proficiency level is required for all attendees. To submit your application, please send us an email with your artistic CV and a link to a self-­‐presentation video in English. Please write “Workshop Simon Stephens 2019” as a subject line and send your application to by Friday March 30th. All candidates applying to this call will be informed by mail about the outcome of the selection process by Monday April 15th. For attendees not living in Milan, we will be glad to assist in finding affordable accommodation.

The participation fee for the workshop is 200 Euros.
