Europe’s first virtual think tank devoted to researching the theatre of the future.
The digital shift changes how we create, share and monetise content, including theatrical works. European theatre needs to increase civic engagement by bringing theatre to new audiences and sectors – through instruments such as participatory theatre and new technologies that break down barriers, encourage dialogue and help Europe’s rich cultural tradition thrive. In light of these challenges, the ETL brings together 6 of Europe’s leading theatres and scientists in the pursuit to use new technology to bring Europe’s stages into our communities and online.
Stage Your City is a project of the partner theatres Centre Dramatique National Nancy-Lorraine, Théâtre de la Manufacture (F), Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe (DE) and Kote Marjanishvili State Drama Theatre (GE), coproduced by the European Theatre Convention (ETC) as part of the European Theatre Lab: Drama goes digital. The European Theatre Lab is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the EU.
“Stage Your City” is merging the trends of digitisation and participatory theatre. It plays with augmented, mixed and virtual reality, 360° video, gaming elements and an app-guided audio walk. The participatory approach encourages the audience to co-create the way out of a dystopian fairy tale: In the future the city will be controlled by an artificial intelligence called Zigmagora. The participants are asked to explore their city interactively, focusing on topics like future health, security, identity – and love.
Opera (e)Studio takes form after the professionals in charge of programming and selection of casts at partner opera houses observe that the new generations of singers that answer calls for auditions are not fully prepared for the demands of current theatres once they complete their formal musical training. Directors and audiences have become increasingly more demanding, and singing beautifully is no longer enough: singers must also look the part, act dramatically, bring us to tears, make us laugh, move elegantly and be fit to withstand the physical demands of the roles on stage.
Opera (e)Studio is a formative project aimed at young opera singers under the age of 32 who have finished their formal training, but have not made their stage debut and need further comprehensive training to align themselves with the demands of the current labour market of the European opera houses to improve their employability. Participants are selected from international auditions held in partner cities throughout Europe, following a mass call for auditions broadcast through specialized networks and printed and online media to maximize dissemination. A one-month intensive residential training course follows in Tenerife covering all disciplines that encompass opera, offered by internationally renowned professionals. The participants then produce a selected opera title with the professional pace of a theatre, which is premièred in Opera de Tenerife’s Season. The entire artistic team then tours with the production, premièring in the partner theatres in within their regular opera season. The project creates a framework for singers, agents, artistic directors and theatres to meet, allowing singers a better understanding of the sector and its internal links, and acting as a showcase of their work, encouraging exposure and the internationalization of their careers. We aim to attract younger audiences through activities designed specifically to bring them to opera.
On Wednesday, MEPs adopted ‘Creative Europe’, the EU’s programme for culture and the audiovisual sector, and the EU’s biggest ever financial commitment.
The new programme, with its budget almost doubled when compared to 2014-2020, (up from 1.4 billion euro) will invest 2.5 billion euro (in current prices) in the EU’s cultural and creative sectors. MEPs recognise the importance of the continent’s cultural sector, and helping it recover from the COVID-19 pandemic which has left many music and cultural venues across Europe closed.
Alongside the significant increase in funding, MEPs secured greater focus on inclusion, on support for contemporary and live music sectors that are among those hit hardest by the pandemic, and higher co-financing rates for small-scale projects.
In negotiations with Council, MEPs were also successful in including an obligation for the programme to promote female talent and support women’s artistic and professional careers. Women are still underrepresented in decision-making positions in cultural, artistic and creative institutions.
In the plenary debate before the vote, MEPs spoke of how COVID-19 has put artists and cultural workers in a precarious situation, and in need of the EU’s support more than ever. Many insisted that culture and art deserved even more of the EU financial support in the future. Watch the debate here.
“The new generation of the programme has been developed with two important objectives in mind: firstly, the safeguarding, development and promotion of European cooperation on cultural diversity and heritage. Secondly, to increase the competitiveness and economic potential of the cultural and creative sectors, in particular the audio-visual sector. This is particularly important given the disastrous effects of the pandemic. The Parliament worked hard and fought for a strengthened and enhanced programme; now it is time also for member states to make concrete efforts in supporting the sector to recover”, said the rapporteur Massimiliano Smeriglio (S&D, IT).
“Around 3.8 % of Europeans work in European cultural and creative sectors. However, this sector has always faced challenges ‑ such as competition with big commercial productions and the very fragmented transnational cultural market. Now, current lock-downs have had a dramatic effect on the EU’s cultural communities, and they need our help more than ever. This significantly better-funded programme recognises the added value of culture to our European way of life and is a first step towards helping it stand up to the challenges of globalisation and digitalisation”, said Chair of the Culture and Education Committee Sabine Verheyen (EPP, DE).
The programme has been already approved by the Council and will enter into force immediately after being published in the official journal. In order to ensure a smooth transition from the previous programme period, retroactivity provisions in the regulation ensure that the new Creative Europe enters into effect from 1 January 2021.
The largest slice of “Creative Europe” (1.4 billion EUR) will go to the MEDIA strand that supports the development, promotion and distribution of European films and audiovisual works within Europe and beyond.
The CULTURE strand supports cross-border cultural and creative projects – cooperation (networks, platforms, innovation projects) between organisations and professionals in areas such as music, books and promotion of European literature, architecture, as well as the EU Cultural prizes and initiatives.
Under the third, cross-sectoral strand, the support for the first time will also go to the news media sector, promoting media literacy, pluralism, press freedom and quality journalism, and helping the media to better address the challenges of digitalisation.
We designed a chart that will guide you through the process of getting relevant information to find a funding strand within Creative Europe for your idea and steps you need to take to implement your project successfully
