The film Global Theatre Connection shows three training projects in Bhutan, Ecuador and Sudan and shows how these projects realized outdoor theatre plays with context for new audiences. The three projects were part of the Global Theatre program.
Theatre Embassy was founded in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in 2001. In the 12 years that followed the organization worked on the capacity building of theatre artists and theatre groups in 27 different countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. They trained over 2700 local artists and reached more then 1 million spectators. In these years around 300 Theatre Ambassadors where sent abroad to train, and develop theatre projects. From their experiences in the field a methodology was crystallized in which the right conditions for a multidisciplinary and intercultural theatre project in the setting of a developing country are to be found.
