3RD MEETING OF YOUNG ARTISTS OF SOUTHEAST EUROPE

“ANCIENT DRAMA AND POLITICS”

 

9/09/2019 – 19/09/2019  

 

OPEN CALL

 

The National Theatre of Northern Greece is proud to announce the organization of the 3rd Meeting of Young Artists of Southeast Europe, entitled “Ancient Drama and Politics”, which will take place in Thessaloniki, Greecem  from the 9th to the 19th of September 2019 as part of the International Network of Ancient Drama inaugurated by the Greek Ministry of Culture.

The creation of a “core” in which various artists from different cultural backgrounds will work on ancient drama, exchanging their views on its political dimension and trying to approach ancient texts in a contemporary way, is one of the main targets of this Meeting. The artists will have the opportunity to get acquainted to experts and practices that will help them to develop their work.

During the 1st Meeting we tried to trace the limits and the possibilities of ancient drama whereas in the 2nd Meeting we focused on the Comic element, not only in comedies but in tragedies as well. This is the third year in which the idea of democracy and the transition of important issues to the public space, will be our main topic.

For ten days in September, a series of workshops and masterclasses will be conducted by experienced and well-acknowledged directors, while international performances of well-established theatre companies will be presented at the NTNG stages, as well. Moreover, the Meeting will include lectures, open presentations and open discussions in which interesting issues will arise, from linking ancient drama with contemporary politics. What’s more, for the first time participants will have the chance to appreciate the results and the experiences of the two previous fruitful Meetings. 

 

The 3rd Meeting of Young Artists of SE Europe is subsidized by the Greek Ministry of Culture as part of the International Network of Ancient Drama.

 

The National Theatre of Northern Greece invites:

Professional artists (until 35 years old) – graduates of schools of drama or Universities specialized in acting – to participate in workshops that will lead to the presentation of the work done in common by artists from different countries.
