How does it work?
European Spectators Day consists in local meetings among spectators and curators to discuss about theatre and dance. It is an opportunity for audiences to be aware of the creative impact they may have on the artistic process. The event will take place in the venues of the organizations involved, at different times due to lag reasons: it will start at 5pm in UK, at 6pm in Central Europe and at 7pm in Eastern Europe, in order to have a unique, coordinated, European event. It can be followed on the dedicated facebook group, open to people who want to take part in the event, sharing contents and opinions about their experiences as spectators: European Spectators Day
“The European Spectators Day is a great occasion to connect people, citizens, spectators sharing experiences, memories and thoughts about the performing arts – said Giuliana Ciancio and Luca Ricci, creators and curators of Be SpectACTive! – We really love the idea of on-line and off-line interconnection of local areas having fun.”
Participants to the event: CapoTrave/Kilowatt Festival – Sansepolcro (IT), Bakelit Multi Art Center Budapest (HU), Domino – Zagreb (HR), LIFT – London (UK), Tanec Praha – Prague (CZ), Teatrul National Radu Stanca – Sibiu (RO), York Theatre Royal – York (UK)…
Topics to discuss:
Tell us your theatre and dance experiences: what are your favorite moments about visiting a theatre? Do you have a favourite space in the theatre (anywhere, including front of house/ in the auditorium)? Do you have any special rituals when you go?
What kind of theatrical experience/show would you choose for a date?
Let’s dream: If you could run your local theatre for one day, what would you do?
Europe is facing many challenges: economic difficulties, the ongoing migrant and refugee flows, Brexit, the terrorism threat…what do you think the role of cultural experiences and the performing arts is within this landscape? What’s the potential social impact of being engaged in the arts?
