Projectinfo

In this residence program my main aim would be to write and publish, one article in English and one in Hungarian. Besides that, I would like to create a website, and publish interviews with artist/pedagogy experts to give an impression about these committed theatre people (their work lives, inner lives, experiences related to this profession). They are doing this important job in order to influence the Hungarian institutional context and social life. The result of this research could be a collective theatre workshop with these experts.
