Seven theatres and festivals from five European countries have joined forces as a network to produce and perform site-specific theatre projects in urban spaces.
Theatre-makers and artists have long since left theatres to perform in the city – with it addressing the topic of urban space. This has also played a major role in changing the attitudes and behaviour of protagonists both on and off stage. Genre barriers have been broken down and directors, choreographers and architects have created works within the performing arts; instead of actors playing the roles, the performers on stage were often experts who gave an insight into their lives and biographies. This spatial and personal move was also a move to address a new type of audience that felt unwelcome or uncomfortable in traditional cultural venues.
