Mix it! Talent Show

Students show off their special talents at seven different events. Whether it's dancing, singing, performance, poetry, acrobatics or something completely out there, whether you're a solo artists or an ensemble/group, you can register for our stage competitions.

How Mix it! works:

Mix it! takes place in individual competitions throughout the year. There we offer all of our students' talents a stage for around 10 minutes - but that's not all: Each acts is paid 50 €. Whoever is voted as the winner by the audience, receives 200 € and automatically qualifies for the final, the great "Mix it! - Night of Talents" at the end of the year. The winner of this night receives the audience prize of 1000 €. The exact dates for the Mix it! talent contests can be found in our event calendar where you can also register for the particular events.

Who can participate in a Mix It! competition?

Participants must be enrolled at a Berlin university which is in cooperation with the studierendenWERK BERLIN. 

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 when taking part in one of the competitions. The enrolment certificate must be presented prior to the performance.

If an applicant qualifies for the Night of Talents but their enrollment ends before the event, they may still take part.

What I can show on stage?

Groups and soloists may showcase their talent in a ten-minute-performance on stage.

The type of performance depends on the theme of the night - meaning an acrobatics performance cannot be presented at a Spoken Word Mix it! However, 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, we will make use of our room owner's power and, if necessary, take legal action.

What if I need technical equipment or would like to practise my performance?

The registration form will, among other things, specify what type of technology is available in the hall. In addition, please state what type of technology is required, and what you will bring along with you.

In case additional technical equipment is required that is not listed on the form, please contact Kulturwerk Berlin at least two weeks prior to the event via an e-mail to kultur@stw.berlin.

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!

If you wish to practise your performance in the Freiraum, registering two weeks before the event is absolutely necessary.

You do not need to send proof of your artistic work, however you are welcome to. Please do not send any original works.
