East of the Stage’ project for the Balkans kicks off

The international project “East of the Stage“, funded by the Ministry of Culture within the framework of the “BOARDING PASS PLUS” call for proposals, aims at the creation of a cohesive and lasting network along the route between Italy and the Balkans. The meeting points will be characterised by dramaturgical workshops designed and directed at everyone, but significantly at young people and students, in order to create links between dramatic art and modern themes.

Tania Sljivar fromBosnia, Jeton Neziraj fromKosovo, Dejan Dukovski, Iskra Sukurova, Ivanka Apostolova Baskar from North Macedonia, Dragana Tripkovic from Montenegro, Sonia Antinori e Walter Prete from Italy.

The first workshop will be held in Priština (Kosovo) from February 13 to 18, 2023. Students, artists and writers can apply for the workshop, which will focus on global warming. The Italian playwright Sonia Antinori will join the workshop in Kosovo to work and elaborate together with the participants an original text that will be presented to the public on February 18.
Participation in the workshop is free.
