Gift Festival discusses Transnational Theatre Collaboration And Exchange
Georgian International Festival or Arts Gift in Tbilisi and Tumanishvili Film Actors Theatre seek for partners for international collaboration involving cultural organizations and theatre makers from different countries that are willing to take part into building an effective network to experiment with transnational theatre aesthetics and create a production, voicing one of the main issues of our continent:
What are the proper host and guest boundaries in our understanding and the relationship between the individual cultures and etiquette of different countries in Europe?
Do there exist various notions of inclusion or exclusion of migrants and travelers across our continent? And may the moral principals or the national philosophy, tradition and religion create a new human constitution in Europe?
We invite to create the trip between the theaters across Europe to create a new theatrical contemplation about the human constitution which will try to define the norms together with artists, societies and audience involved into the story telling. While their documents, arguments and opinion that will emerge during the process of development will shape the final scenario.
We would like to suggest a masterpiece of the Georgian literature, an epic poem by the Georgian poet, writer and philosopher Vazha-Pshavela (first published in 1893 in Tbilisi) - “Host and Guest” - as a navigator through the process and the Georgian International Festival or Arts Gift in Tbilisi as the solid international platform for the presentation of the final production.
With this new opportunity which made Georgia the first neighbourhood country to join the EU Creative Europe Programme, allowing the cultural and creative organizations from Georgia to team up with partners to get funding for cultural cooperation projects, cultural networks and platforms, the Gift Festival/Tumanishvili Film Actors Theatre now with legitimate and useful purpose devote themselves to build serious commitment to challenging, focused work which will definitely encourage the new associations and we are happy to reach out to meet new partners and associates.
Therefore GEORGIAN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF ARTS ‘GIFT’ IN TBILISI IN HONOR OF MIKHAIL TUMANISHVILI with its legal representative and organizer TUMANISHVILI FILM ACTORS THEATRE calls for international and transnational cooperation and exchange providing one of the major arena in Caucasus, the Gift festival, and the Georgian talent that have been proved very exceptional internationally.
