MedeArts and ASSITEJ Denmark are calling for participants to this exchange programme in the field of performing arts for children and young people.
The intention with the programme is to create a space for exchange between artists in Jordan, Denmark, Lebanon & Palestine, with a special attention on theatre for young audiences and the artistic approach of the creation of small-scale tourable productions.
The exchange will include a 10-day residency in Irbid, Jordan and two preparational meetings online. It is also the intention that the participants will visit Aprilfestival 2022 in Denmark, but this is still to be financed and confirmed.
The residency will mainly consist of a workshop where the participants are asked to create small artistic pieces/scenes created in a short time. These pieces will be brought together and presented as a work in progress at the end of the residency.
The workshop will be facilitated by the Danish Stage director, Solveig Weinkouff.
There will be 10-12 participants (5 from Jordan, 4 from Denmark, 1 from Lebanon & 1 from Palestine).
Online meetings: September 2021:
Residency in Irbid, Jordan: 1 – 10 October 2021
Aprilfestival in Denmark (to be confirmed): 27 March – 3 April 2022
The exchange is funded by DROSOS FOUNDATION, MedeArts and ASSITEJ Denmark.
