The EMWAP (European Middle West Arts Project) festival, funded by the European Culture program, presents six productions that are all reflecting on the hybrid space between East and West.
All these productions - ranging from performance to dance and theatre - were made in the last two years by creators
- who worked in different countries,
- who are from different countries
- or who tackle issues from different countries.
How does this influence their work? Does the changing of the context in which they work seep through in the content of the creation? Does the bringing together of artists with a different background result in a hybrid production? Is there a difference in the way the public receives the work according to the context of where the play is performed?
Central notion that will be concentrated on in reflexive debates / Q&A’s and after talks is the notion of “variability” leading to intertwined notions such as “uncertainty, flexibility, adaptation and versatility/diversity”.
The EMWAP project is the result of collaboration between four international partners:
Platform 0090 - Arcola Theatre - Produktiehuis Rotterdam - Tamlimhane Tiyatrosu
