Something Great is an independent organisation based in Berlin and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany that champions forward-thinking, international performing arts: contemporary theatre, dance and performance.  

From our local community to our global network of partners, we represent artists worldwide, helping them develop new projects and tour internationally. Next to our artists, we take care of the Something Great Collection, a long-term project for the creation of an ever-growing contemporary art collection solely dedicated to preserving, investigating and exhibiting international performing arts.

Something Great is currently going through a transformation process as an organization - we are opening a new international performing arts centre at Schloss Mentin in Mentin-Suckow, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. First and foremost, a new centre for artistic residencies open to artists worldwide; at Schloss Mentin we will support from 2023 onwards multiple artists and creative projects, offering space for concentrated working processes and facilitating exchanges between wide-ranging audiences. More information soon. 

Something Great was founded in 2017 by Rui Silveira and is supported by the State of Berlin - Senate Department for Culture and Europe, and Diehl + Ritter / Tanzpakt Reconnect funded by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media within the frame of the program Neustart Kultur.
