Performances beyond two shores is a Creative Europe Cooperation Project.
The project aims to develop the production, circulation and professionalisation of young Arab related performance artists in Europe, and encourage a dynamic and diverse creation targeting all types of audience, following the project Performance(s) between two shores: Arab artists in Europe successfully implemented between June 2016 and December 2017.
The project has three axes:
- The production of a new theatre performance by Syrian Director Wael Ali which will tour all eight project partners in Europe (Naples, London, Weimar, Athens, Plovdiv, Amsterdam, Brussels, Marseille)
- A series of gatherings for young Arab related performance artists living in Europe during the partners’ festivals to exchange ideas on artistic practice and working as a cultural professional in Europe.
- Staff exchanges between partners to share experience and build mutual professional capacities
The project is based on a strong partnership between European cultural institutions. All partners are producers of cultural and artistic events engaged with the Euro-Mediterranean and active in production and circulation of performing arts in Europe, especially with young actors in contemporary creation.
