With residencies at Spoffin Festival (NL) and at Out There (UK), Elika Brtnická explored how to use architecture in a city as her stage. And not just the city: the people in it are just as important.
Denmark and The Netherlands were the home of Léa Dant in the summer of 2019. The artist did a residency at Passage Festival in Helsingor (Demark) and Spoffin in Amersfoort (The Netherlands). With these residencies, she really connected with local women and made them literally more visible.
The residencies of Etta Ermini took place in Imaginarius (Portugal) and KoresponDance (Czech Republic). The opportunity to do a residency in different countries, to meet festivals and programmers was one of the main goals for Etta.
Cristian Fierro and Gracie May Marshall did residencies at KoresponDance (Czech Republic) and Spoffin (The Netherlands). Theyve worked with Eva Campanaro and Antonio Arbues respectively.
Holektiv did residencies at Spoffin (The Netherlands) and Out There (UK). They had a great experience working here.
Third Hand Group did residencies at Out There (UK) and PAssage Festival (Denmark). The opportunities to test a project out, to perform in different environments and present to different audiences in a warm, supportive atmosphere.
TwoMuch did residencies at Imaginarius (PT) Passage Festival (DK) remotely in Spain. They managed to develop and present the show completely.
In this new blog, Maggie and
David from TwoMuch Circus will share what they want to learn from their time on
Roundabout Europe. And off course theyll tell us more about what their
upcoming show is about!
Just three actors and a boat. Third Hand Group hopes to transform this small theatre into a big spectacle! The group is looking forward to be a part of Roundabout Europe.
We wanted to create an outdoor version of our previous indoor show by completely changing its plot. Our goal was to keep the already existing characters of the show. Moreover, we wanted to create experiments with the audience, therefore, we wanted to learn techniques and tricks of how we could involve them. Although we have a five-year experience in performing on the street, we have never done real audience-participatory work.
I had done this one time crazy project in 2018 in my home-country, France: create a performance with more than 30 women in less than 30 hours to show images of sisterhood in public space. I didnt expect it to be more than that, but it was really powerful, so I decided to pursue and it became Capital WOMEN / De femme à FEMMES. My main expectation with applying for Roundabout Europe was to enable this project to become alive once again, and have more women benefit from the experience.
Eliska Brtnicka is telling us all about her two residencies during Roundabout Europe. What did she learn, what could've gone better? Eliska did her residencies at Spoffin in The Netherlands and Out There in the United Kingdom.
Participating in the Roundabout Europe residencies, is different for everyone. So we asked the different artists what it was like for them. In this blogpost, BANDART will tell what Roundabout Europe meant for them as artists and for the show they developed.
