International Project “Circus As A Way Of Life” Continued

PLAY BY YOUTHS FROM NOVI SAD AND GRAČANICA

The play by participants of the great regional art project “Circus As A Way Of Life” will be held on Wednesday 9th April at 4pm in the amphitheatre of the Children’s Village in Sremska Kamenica. The play will be performed by young men and women from the art organizations “Geto” (Ghetto) from Gračanica and “Kreativni pogon” (Creative Drive) from Novi Sad, as well as the residents of the Children’s Village.

The play in the amphitheatre of the Children’s Village will show the newest skills acquired by the young participants of the creative workshops, dedicated to contemporary circus, street theatre, physical theatre, creative thinking and professional knowledge. “Ghetto” and “Creative Drive” are participants of this two-year long project which is, with the support of the European Commission, held parallel in Varaždin (Croatia) and Tirana (Albania), and is a side project of the Street Musicians Festival.

Twenty young people, who will perform a play in Sremska Kamenica, are part of the project “Circus As A Way Of Life” included from last year, when they, during the summer, participated in creative workshops on the topic of circus craft led by the French troupe “Capilotracté”. This spring the project was continued with a new series of workshops in Novi Sad, now under the guidance of the instructor of street theatre craft Nikos Katsipapas, from the Athenian troupe “Helix”.

The project “Circus As A Way Of Life” has as it’s end goal to chose top 20 participants from the workshops in Gračanica, Tirana, Varaždin and Novi Sad, who will form an independent art troupe. During the upcoming summer, the troupe will perform on several events, as are the Street Musicians Festival in Serbia, Špancirfest (Strollers’ Festival) in Croatia, IST Fest in Greece and others. The members of the newly formed troupe will, after the completion of the project, continue working and performing together.

The project “Circus As A Way Of Life” is organized by the Art Association “Inbox” from Novi Sad. The patrons of the project are the European Commission, Erste Foundation and the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia.
