The project purpose is to make contemporary art accessible by means of a series of theatre performances and associated events – discussions, workshops and seminars focused on arts criticism.
The project follows the former "The Rainstick" project supported from the EEA Grants. The project core consists in creating and performing of a new multidisciplinary theatre piece that will raise questions associated with the notions “life in full” and “messiah” on the background of today’s social and climatic changes. The project will investigate diverse views of the indicated notions in Czechia and Norway.
The project will increase the awareness of questions of the following types: What is life in full? How to live in full on the background of social and climatic changes? Who is or who can be a contemporary messiah? In addition, the project will reflect, by means of multidisciplinary theatre, a work of the most recent Czech literature. It will deliver new viewpoints of the novel by Martin Vopěnka “My Brother the Messiah”.
The project will also provide for sharing of experience between Czech and Norwegian partners in arts criticism, including a seminar with 3 theatre critics and journalists aiming at critical discussion and communication with audience.
