The Performance Exchange Programme is available to ETC Member Theatres wishing to invite a guest performance from another ETC Member Theatre.

This artistic mobility gives a new and exciting cultural experience to the theatre audience and provides ETC Member Theatres with an interesting opportunity for personal and professional encounters. Touring performances will be showcased on ETC’s website for further international promotion.

Grants available

The grants awarded (up to EUR 2000) can cover travel costs for the show as well as costs for their multilingual presentation (eg. translation, surtitling...).
The grants are awarded based on the decisions of the ETC Board. Applications are to be completed jointly by the sending theatre and receiving theatre.

For more information, contact ETC Project & Network Manager Laura Gardes:
