Project description:

The project includes creating and performing of a new multidisciplinary theatre piece that will raise questions associated with the theme of “home”. Thanks to partnership with a Norwegian art group and involvement of Czech artists from various social and national environments, the project will investigate and compare diverse views of the notion of “home” including its perception in Central Europe (Prague) and the Arctic region of Norway (Tromso).

The project will increase the awareness of significance of the explored notion of “home” in both active and passive participants.

In addition, the project will reflect, by means of multidisciplinary theatre, a work of the most recent Czech literature dealing, in its turn, with the theme of “home”. It will deliver new viewpoints of both this theme and the novel. The project will also provide for sharing of experience between Czech and Norwegian partners in cultural entrepreneurship. The project will primarily address general public and artists, secondarily also certain minorities and young adults.

Within the project:

  • New interdisciplinary theatre piece will be created.
  • 14 public performances will be organized. Out of that Norwegian artists from our partner organization will actively take part in 4 performances (3 in Prague and 1 in Tromso). 13 of 14 performances will be interdisciplinary. At least in 1 of 14 performances, members of the Russian-speaking minority will actively take part.
  • 6 public discussions on the topic of “home” and on the notion of “home” from various perspectives will take place.
  • We will organize 1 workshop (in Tromso) on cultural entrepreneurship intended for exchange of experience between Norwegian and Czech partners.
  • 1 workshop sharing artistic and technical skills for a group of physically handicapped people will be organzed.
  • We will provide for an appropriate publicity for all project events. Finally, we will publish a bilingual brochure about the overall project..
