MedeArts and ASSITEJ Denmark are calling for participants to an exchange programme in the field of performing arts for children and young people.
The intention with the programme is to create a space for exchange between artists resident in Jordan, Denmark, Lebanon and Palestine, with special attention on theatre for young audiences and the artistic approach of the creation of small-scale tourable productions.
The exchange will include a 10-day residency in Irbid, Jordan and two preparatory meetings online. It is also the intention that the participants will visit Aprilfestival 2022 in Denmark, but this is still to be financed and confirmed.
The residency will mainly consist of a workshop where the participants are asked to create small artistic pieces/scenes created in a short time. These pieces will be brought together and presented as a work in progress at the end of the residency.
The workshop will be facilitated by the Danish Stage director, Solveig Weinkouff.
There will be 10-12 participants (5 from Jordan, 4 from Denmark, 1 from Lebanon & 1 from Palestine).
Online meetings will take place September 2021 ahead of the residency in Irbid, Jordan: 1 – 10 October 2021. Aprilfestival in Denmark (to be confirmed) takes place 27 March – 3 April 2022.
Flight tickets to Jordan, accommodation and meals or per diems will be covered by the organisers. The budget does not allow for payment of fees or salaries to the artist.
