Scholarships for Georgian, Moldavian and other European theatre makers
Scholarships for a two-weeks-residency program in the frame of GOGOLFEST in Kiev from 5 – 19 September 2016
Exchange working experience and methods with Ukrainian artists!
The GOGOLFEST is a renowned international multidisciplinary festival of contemporary art in Ukraine. It was founded in 2007 by Vlad Troitsky, president and artistic director of ETC member DAKH Centre of Contemporary Art, who envisioned the festival as a polyphonic, multicultural celebration of contemporary art. Every year, it takes the audience through the most significant achievements in contemporary art both Ukrainian and international. As an educational platform, GOGOLFEST offers learn-on-the-job trainings for culture managers and producers and it proposes an innovative and explicated educative non-academic scheme of residencies, lectures and productions with the participation of young and experienced artists from all over the world. Thus, it provides a wide co-production professional network with a strong educative component, in this way strengthening intercultural, international and interregional dialogue, as well as providing exchange, transfer and dissemination of experience, knowledge and innovative educational models.
Upon recommendation by an ETC member theatre, 10 theatre makers and performing arts professionals from Europe will work together with Ukrainian artists in a two-weeks-residency program in Kiev from 5 – 19 September 2016 and present the results to an international audience in the frame of the multidisciplinary GOGOLFEST.
The participants will work on small scale productions to interpret a contemporary subject and hence participate in a direct exchange of working methods and experiences. The presentation of the project outcome will take place in the frame of the GOGOLFEST 2016 in the presence of an international audience. The program is a great possibility for international artists to broaden their own perspective throughout net- and co-working with the Ukrainian artists and to create a valuable context for further artistic exchange.
