Perform Europe Projects 2021-2022
Since December 2020, Perform Europe has been rethinking cross-border performing arts presentation in a more inclusive, sustainable and balanced way, in the 40 countries of Creative Europe and the UK. 19 ambitious projects, aimed to test innovative, more inclusive and sustainable performing arts touring and distribution models, have now been selected by the Perform Europe Jury, composed of a balanced and diverse group of 11 accomplished performing arts professionals.
The 19 Perform Europe projects will bring high quality works to rural areas, involve local artists and participants, empower voices of migrant artists and communities, use slow travel as a framework to create and show work, reduce carbon-intensive practices, refocus on experiences of nature and the body, bridge the gap between audiences and artists with disabilities, use technology to involve communities, bring artistic work to new places using apps and virtual reality, promote queer, feminist, decolonial, migrant, human-centered, artist-led, and ecological initiatives. These are some of the ambitions of the selected projects.
In the Perform Europe Catalogue, you will find an overview of the 19 projects, along with more information about the partners, artistic work(s), and presenting contexts included in each project.
Perform Europe is funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and co-managed by IETM, the European Festivals Association (EFA), Circostrada, EDN – European Dancehouse Network, and IDEA Consult.
