TERRAIN OF MEETING
Terrain of Meeting is a participatory, inclusive community project that uses the methods of open-air theater and social theater inspired by Polish models to culturally activate rural and urban communities, bring public spaces closer to people and contribute to bringing public spaces closer through art. The events within the project took place in Cluj-Napoca and in the space. As a first step on the streets of Cluj Napoca, street actions and an outdoor performance were carried out: "We are/Where". In November, the project moved to the virtual space, where four seminars and a film screening took place. The studio version of the spectacle "We are/Where" was shown online live on 30.12.2921.
- Can theater be a meeting place? surely yes. HOW TO DO IT? we are trying to find an answer to this question together
- Why do theater? How theater can draw inspiration from our environment and answer important questions for the community. How can theater reach the viewer outside the theatre? How to think about where we are as part of the community through theater?
The Meeting Area is a project run by the ArtJunction Foundation together with the Shoshin Theater Association in Cluj-Napoca.
The project was co-financed under the Multiannual Program NIEPODLEGŁA for 2017-2022, as part of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute's "Cultural Bridges" subsidy program, as well as by Romanian institutions: the National Cultural Fund (AFCN) and the Department of Interethnic Relations (DRI).
The project is carried out in partnership with the Polish Institute in Bucharest, the Department of Theater and Film at the Babeș-Bolyai University, the Váróterem Projekt Association, the Magic Puppet Association and the Made in Pata Rât Association.
