Students show off their special talents at seven different events. If you like to dance or sing, or love performances and poetry, or you do acrobatics or are edgy and enjoy the experimental, then you can register for our stage competitions, as a soloist or as an ensemble/group.
We provide a stage for approx. 10 minutes to every student talent – but that's not all: Each acts is paid EUR 50. Whoever is voted as the winner by the audience, receives EUR 200 and automatically qualifies for the final, the great "Mix it! - Night of Talents" at the end of the year. The winner on this night receives the audience prize of EUR 1000.
The exact dates for the Mix it! talent contests can be found in our event calendar.

The deadline for registering without additional technology required is two days before the desired event date. In special cases applications one day before the desired event can be accepted. But please note that we cannot guarantee that your application on short notice can be processed on time!
You do not need to send proof of your artistic work, however you are welcome to. Please do not send any original works.
Who can apply? Can ensembles/groups also apply?
Participants must be enrolled at a Berlin university which is in cooperation with the studierendenWERK BERLIN. The universities are listed in the conditions of participation.
In case of ensembles/groups, at least half of the participants must be enrolled in one of the above mentioned universities, i. e. for example 2 of 4 or 1 of 2. In case of odd numbers, more than half must be enrolled, e.g. 2 of 3 or 3 of 5.
Participants must be enrolled at the point in time of the event in which they qualify for the Night of Talents. The enrolment certificate must be presented prior to the performance.
If an applicant qualifies for the Night of Talents, however, is no longer enrolled at one of the above mentioned universities, they may still take part.
What can I perform on stage? Do I have to be a professional?
Groups and soloists may show their talent in a ten-minute-performance on stage. At qualification events, stage time may be extended by the presenter, depending on the number of participants who still want to perform. The type of performance depends on the topics given and there are no limits. You don't have to be a professional – on the contrary! Mix it! is a space for creatives who perform arts in addition to their studies.
However, no primarily political or religious performances are permitted on stage. Also, no xenophobic, racist, sexist, homophobic or other discriminatory contents are permitted on stage. Should this happen, the right of admission will be exercised and, if necessary, legal action will be taken.
