The Italian Centre of the International Theatre Institute UNESCO (Italy), in collaboration with Zdruzenie na umetnici Makedonski centar na Internacionalen teatarski institut/PRODUKCIJA (North Macedonia), Theatro Tsi Zakynthos (Greece), University of Salento – Department of Engineering for Innovation – Augmented and Virtual Reality Lab (Italy), Muzeul de Istorie Nationala si Arheologie Constanta (Romania), are pleased to announce a European Call for Artists for the participation in artistic activities in Greece, Romania and Italy within the project ETERIA – Enhance Transborder Experiences, Rebuild Interactions of Artists, supported by the European Union Creative Europe Programme – Cultural Cooperation projects.
The open call is addressed to emerging and professional artists from all Europe for the participation in the International Arts Residencies, that include online masterclasses and in-person masterclasses, activities, rehearsals for the realisation of a multilingual site-specific performance. The selected artists will have the chance to develop their skills on the practice of Social and Community Theatre, social inclusion through theatre, and new technologies in performing arts. This experience will provide the artists with important materials that can contribute to evolving their professional performative skills and to enhancing new international collaborations.
The selected artists will participate in the performance preparation and presentation that will be made during three hybrid Arts Residences held in 2023 and 2024 online and in Greece, Romania and Italy. The international group of artists will spend two weeks of full-immersion rehearsals working for the preparation of a collective, multilingual, site-specific performance, under the artistic direction of the International Theatre Institute Italy, focusing on the materials collected on the Residences’ topics. The work will be made in connection with the local communities and places.
The project will cover travel and accommodation costs for the selected participants.
