5. What is the technical framework?
Five professionally equipped stages are available in the exhibition halls during the IKF: Three closed theatre halls for the field of performing arts, one music hall for musicians and bands, and a performance area for the presentation of performances in the field of street theatre (inside the building!).
The productions submitted must be able to be realised on the available stages. Information on the technical parameters is provided in the section "The stages".
The available stage equipment may be supplemented as required if it lacks the necessary technical capability. The costs shall be borne by the artist/the group. If technical requirements cannot be met, FWTM reserves the right to bar artists/groups from taking part, even if they have already been selected.
Walkabout acts can move around in the foyer and the entrance hall – not in the exhibition halls! – at set times. No technical equipment is provided here. The final decision on whether a production is defined as a walk act (foyer, entrance hall) or as a street theatre performance (street theatre performance area) rests with the FWTM.
