European meeting of fringe theater groups v Rakousku

Od 16. do 19. června se v rakouském St. Pöltenu koná mezinárodní setkání divadel, divadleních a tenčních skupin i jednotlivců, kteří se věnují okrajovým a nezávislým žánrům divadla. Cílem přednášek a workshopů je podnítit rozvoj těchto žánrů ve východní Evropě. Oficiální řečí je angličtina a celý meeting je zdarma.

This is an invitation to all theater, dance and performance groups (and single persons) in Europe to join us in St. Pölten, Lower-Austria, in a border-crossing dialogue about working-conditions, problems and visions in the field of fringe or non-institutional theater. Encouraged by the EU eastern expansion, this professional meeting involves a series of lectures, workshops, working-groups, and exciting diverse performances by theater companies from 5 different European countries.

The meeting intends to offer information, exchange and concrete net-working between theater practitioners throughout Europe.

The finishing-touch will be an international party with street theater and live bands.

We would like to encourage as many fringe theater practitioners as possible to take part, and try therefore to provide free accommodation in the limit of our budget. We are able to offer limited travel expenses to guests from Eastern Europe.

On the webpage http://www.freietheater.at it is already possible to join a discussion-dialogue and present your projects. We are looking forward to receiving your suggestions, ideas and reactions.

Entrance to the meeting and to all performances is free of charge. For the performances we organize a shuttle bus from Vienna to St. Pölten and back. Meeting language is English.
