Our cooperation project aims at developing creative, sustainable relationships between theatres, companies, cultural associations in the field of animation theatre across Europe – through the means of object/ puppet theatre and connected educational and social activities. Artists, audiences and organizations at both local and transnational level will cooperate for the production, presentation and dissemination of new performance works, in order to develop new models of co-creation and visibility for puppetry.
At the core of the project lies the creation of animation theatre co-productions, designed by multi-national teams set to explore creatively elements of their cultures, heritages and present day societies (from different backgrounds, histories and contexts from Europe).
Our approach can be defined in the artistic-educational-scientific paradigm, addressing: the segment of the youngest audience - children between 3 and 14 years old, but also organizations, theatre companies, experts in the field and general public, whose access to this type of art form we wish to facilitate. In this sense, a prerogative of the project is to raise awareness and spread the knowledge on puppet popular traditions of each partner, a target we intend to meet by developing audience development strategies. Besides the fact that the artistic and educational act produced will have a resonance in the six countries involved in the project, transgressing national and even zonal boundaries, its effects will be measured also from its educational and informational component.
Towards these goals, the support activities we propose to the partners include: Exchange meetings; Puppet-workshops for specific target-groups; Itinerary of the puppet-theatre co-productions; Organizing puppet-Theatre Festivals; Issuing of publications; Digitization of valuable archive material; Sociological/Anthropological research & documentation.
Therefore, our aim is to develop a long-term, collaborative, trans-disciplinary project that extends beyond the 4 years envisioned (2019-2023), based on sharing of know-how, expertise and experience of partners, so as to valorize judiciously, creatively and playfully - nonetheless - , each partner’s resources of excellence.
