ETC Residency at the GogolFest 2017

From 1-18 September 2017, the ETC and our Ukrainian partners from CCA DAKH and GOGOLFEST are happy to welcome five European theatre directors in Kiev to participate in a two-weeks residency program in the frame of the multidisciplinary festival GOGOLFEST. Together with young Ukrainian actors, the five theatre-makers Peter Cant from the UK, Katharina Schenk and Charlene Markow from Germany, Avtandil Diasamidze and Ana Tsutskiridze from Georgia will develop small scale productions to be presented on the second festival weekend from September 16-17 in front of an international audience.

The purpose for them is to enter into a professional dialogue and to connect with international colleagues in order to exchange about the public and sociopolitical role of theatre as well as about current aesthetic developments.

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.
