Priorities: proposals that would connect the key tags of this project (Renaissance castle, local context, felt technique, ‘performativity’, and dynamics).
Please keep in mind that Panemunė Castle is a temporary project venue, therefore the technical equipment and prop options are very limited. We highly prefer artists who can work on site-specific projects with minimal equipment.
Selection criteria: experience in interdisciplinary projects, proposed project idea, feasibility
