Bringing Family Theatre to Villages across Europe


It is official!! We are very proud to announce that a network founded by some of our SPARSE Plus partners has been selected to be funded by Perform Europe*!

The name of the partnership is "Bringing Family Theatre to Villages across Europe". It will share high quality professional performing arts performances from Poland, Lithuania and Germany. Performances will reach rural communities in Estonia, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany, Poland and Lithuania. This project seeks to learn from the previous successful cross-border rural touring projects which is still a very new and challenging concept – involving new partners, selecting new touring shows collaboratively, creating zoned tours that support artist well-being, and reaching rural audiences.

Congratulations to Eesti Tantsuagentuur in Estonia as leader of the project, Art Fraction Foundation in Poland, Fish Eye in Lithuania, Teatro 4Garoupas in Germany, Sinum Theatre in Hungary, Kuks Theatre in Czech Republic, and AMAT in Italy for this success!

Thank you to Perform Europe to allow this network to push the borders and propose high quality performances in villages!

We will share about this on the SPARSE Plus social media: Facebook and Instagram.
