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.


Applications are now open for Performance Exchange Programme 2019/2020.

We have seven grants of €2,000 available for ETC Member Theatres to present a production from a fellow ETC Member Theatre. Two of the seven grants are reserved for participatory theatre projects. Grants are a contribution to travel costs and are awarded based on the decisions of the ETC Board. Applications are to be completed by the sending and receiving theatre together.

If you have any questions about the Performance Exchange programme, please contact Alice Burrows
