From spoken word to opera, from rap to dance, from grunge to cyberart

Spr!tzl, a studio for improbable artforms by Silbersee, invites makers from every possible discipline to pitch extraordinary projects for an interdisciplinary panel of experts on 7 July 2018. You can pitch as an individual or as a group.

Eight young makers from any discipline will then have the opportunity to pitch their idea to an expert interdisciplinary jury. The three winning candidates will each win a development budget of €15,000 to realise their project in the 2018-19 season under Silbersee’s mentorship. The result will be presented during the Spr!tzl Tage in July 2019. The three makers will then have an extra chance of winning an audience prize of €5000, and one of them will be declared the Spr!tzl winner of 2019.

Spr!tzl works in partnership with A Lab, A’DAM Toren, Tolhuistuin and Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ. These venues on the north bank of the IJ in Amsterdam provide the laboratory and stage for all Spr!tzl creations.
