The Ways of the Heroes > Art in Public Space Workshop (Bosnia and Herzegovina)
Studio Teatar and LOOP, would like to invite you to take part in an international public space performance workshop – A Beloved Enemy. The workshop is developed in collaboration with international partners in the frame of the project 'The Ways of the Heroes', supported by Creative Europe. Drawing inspiration from Ibsen’s masterpiece ‘An Enemy of the People’, the workshop will tackle social and environmental issues that are as relevant today as they were 140 years ago. The workshop will take place 6-13 July 2021 in Zenica (Bosnia and Herzegovina), a city faced with numerous environmental challenges today.
The participants will explore the use of public space as a habitat of art, and as an environment for artistic articulation of the public discourse through methods that place language of theatre, body movement and artists themselves at the heart of the urban fabric of the city. Topics such as democracy, public life and art will be fundamental in the research of the workshop.
The workshop will be conducted by a team of international artists. Twenty selected participants from different countries and artistic disciplines will artistically explore multiple locations of Zenica for 8 days. The final outcome of the workshop will be a series of public space performances taking place on the opening night of Summer Nights Festival of Studio Teatar. The participants will be given the opportunity for research, networking, exchange, co-creation and international coverage of the final performances.
Transport, accommodation costs and daily meals will be provided by the organisers.
Deadline: 20 April 2021
