Foundation of Balkans arts youth mobility network, through the initial project - a production of a theatre play/performance, which will be premiered at the International Theatre Festival Actor of Europe 2023.
The preparation of the performance will be carried through a series working sessions for young artists from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Albania and N. Macedonia (one actor and one artist: director, set designer, costume designer, dramatist, musician, from each country).
The participants will be guided and supervised by the proven professionals from the field of arts and culture, lecturers/trainers for workshops.
The whole project will be carried out under the mentorship of the prominent theatre authors Jordan Plevnes and Dejan Projkovski.
Project’s target group are young artists from the WB Region: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and N. Macedonia.
Participants in this project are divided into these categories:
1. Five (5) young professional actors (22-30), participants in the working sessions for production of a theatre performance, 1 from each of WB’s countries;
2. Five (5) young professional authors (22-30) (dramatist, director, musician, costume designer, set designer), participants in the working sessions, one from each of the countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Albania and N. Macedonia);
The participants will gain unique opportunity for improvement of their professional and intercultural competencies, as well as enhancing their network and opening possibilities for participation in creative projects in future.
After the initial preparation of the project and selection of the participants and lecturers/trainers, a total of four seven days working sessions for the purpose of creation and preparation of the theatre play will be organized, three in Skopje, in the period from March to June 2023, and the forth in July (6th-10th) 2023, in Resen, at the International Theatre Festival “Actor of Europe”.
An event - Forum will be organized, based on the title/subject “Balkans arts youth mobility network”, (July 2023, at the ITF Actor of Europe) which will feature these young artists, their thoughts and opinions, during their artistic endeavor in this project. The other participants on the Forum will be guests and participants from the ITF Actor of Europe. In the same time, this will mark the project as a base for the potential creation of “Balkan Mobility Arts Centre”.
The theatre performance will be premiered at The International Theatre Festival – Actor of Europe 2023 in Prespa region, N. Macedonia. (11 July 2023).
Participants will attend the whole festival in Prespa (6-11 July 2023). The final results will be presented through digital media in all WB countries. As a part of sustainability of the project, we and our partners will put maximum efforts results to be presented at least in one city from each country of the project: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia. Cultural visit trip will be organized for the participants from Resen to Ohrid (UNESCO city).
For all categories of the target groups, gender equality will be taken under consideration, and candidates with fewer opportunities will have an advantage in the selection.
The organizer covers all the costs for travel and accommodation of the participants.
The participants must be able to adjust their schedule to be able to travel and attend the sessions according to the dynamics of the project.
