Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch are proud to announce they are one of twelve European performing arts institutions, who are working collaboratively in an exciting new partnership to discover the European narratives of tomorrow.
Determined to better integrate marginalised, isolated and disengaged communities in their activities both on and off stage. Acutely aware of the impact the pandemic has had on the next generation, the partners have set up an international research project to support the careers and international development of emerging artists.
Over the course of 30 months, 15 artists selected through an international open call will participate in three research residencies in three different cities. Each host institution will offer the artists the opportunity to connect with local resources including research organisations, foundations, artists and members of their communities.
During the research residencies, the artists will develop a concept idea for a production. This idea will be based on the most urgent issues they have identified around the larger theme of social inclusion and fed by new and missing narratives they feel need to be told on our stages tomorrow.
The twelve partners are:
- Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg (Luxembourg)
- Théâtre de Liège (Belgium)
- Piccolo Teatro di Milano – Teatro d’Europa (Italy)
- Conde Duque Centro de Cultura Contemporanea, Madrid (Spain)
- Teatrul Tineretului, Piatra Neamt (Romania)
- Teatro Municipal do Porto (Portugal)
- Nowy Teatr, Warsaw (Poland)
- Théâtre National de Strasbourg (France)
- Cyclorama (France)
- Staatstheater Mainz (Germany)
- Comédie de Reims (France)
- Queens Theatre Hornchurch (United Kingdom)
