Basca Theater invite 3 international and/or Romanian artists to spend two weeks in Timisoara, and to create cultural interventions in the city, with Basca Theater’s team facilitating access to various invisible communities. In this call, the focus is on artists who share the values of Basca Theater and the ‘in : v z b l festival’: solidarity, dialogue, respect and dignity. Artists are expected to respect these values and take them into account in creating and conducting community interventions.
in : v z b l festival was born from the need to bring together artists from several fields, who could interact with various categories of audiences. This meeting aims to offer everyone (artists and the public) different perspectives on the reality around us. The desire is to initiate a dialogue through which what is sometimes ‘invisible’ in society begins to become visible, through art.
The voices of various vulnerable, ‘invisible’ groups are often unheard or even unspoken. Through this festival Basca Theater want to give these groups a voice and context to self-represent and to make this voice stronger in the community. Diversity is an underexploited wealth. Different cultures and different perspectives on reality are a learning opportunity for all of us, as long as we manage to put at the centre of our interactions the values and principles that the festival affirms.
Artists can apply with a proposal for a community artistic intervention, explaining the work process, the intended target group and the final result. Selected artistic interventions can take place between 1 September – 15 November 2023. Basca Theater offer artist fee, transport, accommodation and meals.
