Project: “Pop Drama – Circulating of European Playwriting through people’s choice”
After having successfully implemented “Pop Drama – Circulating of European Playwriting through people’s choice”, a small scale cooperation project aimed at supporting the circulation of European dramaturgy, and having proved the efficiency of the methodology tested, the present cooperation project proposal wishes to build and follow up on that previous experience. In particular, the project aims at promoting the transnational circulation in the field of dramaturgy and the accessibility to European dramaturgy at a transnational level, at supporting theatre and cultural players cooperation and at implementing audience development activities, targeted in particular at students.
The project foresees a random division of the 9 partners involved in 3 mixed groups and a national call for playwrights for the selection of texts to be translated in the partner languages. These texts will be performed in alternative spaces in the partner countries, in order to realize a so-called “theatre outside the theatre” as a part of the audience development strategy. A winning text will then be selected and performed by designated companies and directors in the countries involved.
They would like to cooperate with organizations active in the cultural and creative field, operating in the sector of theatre and dramaturgy (theatres, cultural organizations, universities, etc.).
