Tools for Tomorrow
Part of the Festival, but protected from its cheerful din, is a space-time dedicated to the artistic community.
The third edition of the FTA Clinics will focus on support for theatre and dance artists. Six dramaturges, six seminal figures from here and elsewhere are invited to share their munitions: tools, sources of inspiration, ideas, anything in service to artistic creation. Three days to work, discuss, comprehend, glean and chew over ideas.
Moderators Émilie Martz-Kuhn + Jessie Mill Assistance Emmanuelle Jetté
Guest Dramaturges Bart van den Eynde (Bruxelles) + Sarah Israël (Munich) + Alexandros Mistriotis (Athènes) + Leyla-Claire Rabih (Dijon + Berlin) + Elise Simonet (Montreuil) + Kouam Tawa (Bafoussam)
Do you have an artistic project underway, one that’s lying fallow or is simply stuck? Take advantage of a private chat with one of our guest dramaturges in a conversation free of the constraints and imperatives of production, a moment to step back and reflect, to gather momentum. Untie the knots so as to better dream, and better create.
