Registration is now open for the 13th edition of HIGH FEST, which will take place from 1st till 10th of October in Yerevan, Armenia.We are the main festival on the territory of the former USSR Countries (except of Moscow). So, apply and be part of us!

Our programs:

Main program

Student Program
Ch/Puppet Program
Memorial Program: This year it is the 100 year commemoration of the Armenian Genocide during the Ottoman Empire in 1915 and we will open a new program. No matter from which country we are, the genocide is a disaster. Art helps us reveal and speak about it to a larger audience. With this program we would like to speak about humans and violence. We aim to open to the audience the sorrow of other humans.  The performances can be in any genre: drama, or music or verbatim or puppetry or contemporary dance etc.

If you have a performance about genocide or human violence, please apply to the Memorial Program.   Together let’s realize the Memorial program. Let’s spread the information about this to all our colleagues and do a small step for you but it will be a huge step for the victims of the Armenian Genocide.
Our application deadline is the 31st of March!

Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) have put out a call to artists and arts organisations from Australia and New Zealand to take part in their 2016 conference.

The biennial conference provides showcasing opportunities for tour-ready productions as well as a pitching strand for works in development in the genres of dance, theatre, physical theatre and music.

Founded in 1994, APAM was established by the Australia Council for the Arts with the aim of creating greater national and international touring opportunities for Australian contemporary performers.

The 2014 programme featured 37 production showcases and 15 work in development pitches. Highlights included Shaun Parker & Company, Terrapin Puppet Theatre and ILBIJERRI Theatre Company.

APAM 2016 coincides with WTF: A Festival of Contemporary Performance, which aims to challenge the conventions of traditional reason. It was this innovative festival that led to APAM awarding Brisbane the contract for three APAM biennial conferences from 2014 to 2018 inclusive.

Brisbane Powerhouse is the venue for the conference, with the next edition running 22-26 February 2016. The closing date for submissions is 1 July 2015.
