Hello from Maribor, Slovenia. Looking forward to meeting all of you in Rijeka.
A short intro about the project I'll be presenting as an independent producer, on Saturday 26th October:
A 3-year-old local (Maribor, Slovenia) music festival with a socially engaged tune, carrying an ambition of spreading beyond local environment / context. Looking for collaborators interested in exploration of gender equality in different music genres. Festival of equality Ruffle-Haired & Bearded does not define itself as an ordinary music festival, nor is it a women's music festival. We describe it as the main activity of the music initiative of equality on local music scene, which seeks to equally integrate female and male musical perspective. We are using music, but also cultural and artistic activities, as an universal language(s) that connect humans beyond gender differences. Through the culture of - dialogue.

Project Brest Stories Guide is an audioplay in mobile application. It's a tour around “nonexistent” Brest, which is based on materials from the archives, books, photos, interviews with witnesses of the events related to the anti-Semitic manifestations since 1937, the Brest ghetto and the obliteration of the Jewish community in 1941-1942. Also we used there unpublished reports of German officers. The play becomes a kind of investigation with the hearing of witnesses in the case of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust in Brest in the 1930s and 1940s. Now Brest has a history told not by the authors of textbooks and the creators of heroic narratives, but by its inhabitants.
On the presentation I'll tell you why and how we did it.
We want to make an English language version of Brest Storis Guide and we are looking for the partners who is interested in the project and actors, english speakers with good clear voices.
From Kryly khalopa theatre there will be 2 of us: me, Sviatlana and Aksana, theatre director.
Looking forward to meet you all in Rijeka!
Hi, I’m Silvia, the dramaturg of Qui e Ora Residenza Teatrale, an Italian Theatre company. I’ll be in Rijeka and I’m very pleased to participate in the Newsround Session this Friday, October 25th.
Here is a short presentation of our project.
Food and Feels is our new project around the food concept. How does food drive our lives? Is food a mirror of our welfare and our social relations? Is there a special recipe strictly connected to everyone’s story? Can the meal be a metaphor of something else in our life? Is it possible to have a food identity card that tells us who we are?
We want to meet other organizations and companies who are working around the food concept, maybe with different formats or know-hows from ours, in order to build possible collaborations leading to coproduction, residencies and European projects.
International Contemporary Dance Collective - iCoDaCo
Hi, my name is Israel Aloni and I am the co-funding artistic director of independent contemporary dance company and organisation called ilDance which is based in Gothenburg, Sweden.
At the Newsround session on Saturday 26 October, I will be presenting International Contemporary Dance Collective (iCoDaCo) which is a biennial artists led project that brings independent artists from different places, with different backgrounds and distinct artistic practices to coexist as an artistic collective for a non-conventionally long period during which they travel to experience the realities in each of the countries that they are from. Throughout the journey they create work that is then presented in all these different locations and beyond. The entire process is done with strong elements of research and interrogation of notions such as collaborative work, internationality, cross-culturalism, trans-mobility, authorship in the arts and more. Furthermore, there is a great emphasis on the people and the communities in all the locations that iCoDaCo visits along the journey. The project meets, activate and includes the community in various creative, formal and casual events.
We are currently developing the 2021-2023 addition of iCoDaCo which will offer employment to large numbers of artists in each country that we work in as well as multiply of communities that can both participate in and benefit from the project.
iCoDaCo was first initiated in 2012 and has since grown gradually and organically until in 2018 we decided to apply for Creative Europe funding when we realised that we were already meeting all the requirements. We are thinking of applying for Creative Europe support for the 2021-2023 project as well. We are looking for collaborators who are either interested in becoming partners in the CE project or simply a project collaborators who want to work with iCoDaCo in some way.
You can contact me with any questions on email@example.com
Looking forward to seeing you all in Rijeka!
I am Josh Armstrong, Artistic Director of Objet-a Creative Studio.
Re:Genesis is an interdisciplinary performance project which proposes a future creation-myth in response to the first chapters of the Book of Genesis retold through future (queer) ecologies. This hybrid performance fuses theatre, sonic- and live- art, theology and microbiology in an act of radical performance.
This performance project brings together artists and academics in a thoughtful celebration of queerness in Creation as well as a prophetic vision of humanity’s future necessity to find a home beyond our wounded Earth.
R&D: 2020 \ Production: 2021
The Counter Institute is looking for partners For Exit Lear prject in Belgium and UK. But we are also open to possibilities elsewhere in Europe.
Exit Lear is a multifaceted performance project about Political Foolery. It brings in dance, theater, music and storytelling to explore and convey experiences of political division and unity. We aiming to plan six residencies in six different cities. In each city The Counter Institute works with local artists and local citizens to create a new version of Exit Lear and share it the audience in all these locations. In addition to the performance, we organize various activities such as seminars, master classes, screening films, lecture etc. for the public in each city.
Exit Lear is a large-scale project, developing in 2020/22. It offers employment, internship, training and professional development to tens of individual and engages hundreds of citizens and reaches thousands of audience in each location.
We have previously produced two international projects (HamletZar & The Maids) with the same ethos, method and scale which were supported by Art Council England, Danish Arts Foundation etc. We rely on past experience and network to insure the success of Exit Lear.
Hi, I'm Benjamin Gould of Commedia of Errors Theatre Company. We are a Belfast based theatre company with a focus on creating new theatrical productions that are accessible to audiences not present without escluding more traditional audiences. We seek to entertain, but also challenge our audiences, collaborators and ourselves.
I will the company's work and inparticular:
The Partition Project which looks at 100 years of the border in Ireland, exploring its effect on the communities it divides.
We are looking for like-minds!
At SÍN Arts Centre (Budapest) as well as in the whole of the field the unsustainability of the working methods, the uneven, unforeseeable career development of artists, the hardening of the market have all encourage us to reconsider our activities and operation practices. We plan this in collaboration with artists, by joining forces and creating a think-tank for better understanding the needs and possibilities ahead us. We plan to map and integrate state-or-the-art methods of organizational development, current ideas of non-hierarchical working models, etc.
We are looking for like-minds in the field with a possible prospect of developing an Erasmus+ project.
See you on Friday 25 October, 14:00-14:45 in the newsround
