Addendum to the book “Myth behind the community”

The “second chapter” as an addendum to the book Myth behind the community is a test performance, called Janus mistery and carnival, which is a summary of the eight community development pilot projects in the different European villages: Bingenheim (Germany), Méra (Romania), Kazincbarcika (Hungary), Highbridge (UK), Pontelagoscuro (Italy), neighborhood of Bežigrajska soseska 7 in Ljubljana (Slovenia), Cserkút (Hungary).

We hope to be able to tour it all over in European rural arias, as a performance basically made for rural communities with the idea to facilitate the renovation of local feasts, as the double faced Ianus looking back and front is able to close a period of time and to initiate a new one in the life of a local community.

The description of its plot is available on our website, see “Sources” – “The myth behind the community”.

The RIOTE 3 project is ending today

The partnership members: Kud Ljud (SI); Shoshin Theatre Association (RO); Utca-SzAK (HU); Take Art Limited (UK); Protagon e. V. (DE); Teatro Nucleo (IT); Une idée dans l’air (FR); SINUM Theatre (coordinator, HU) are saying goodbye to the RIOTE 3 project today but they are proud of the common results of the last two year’s collaboration. Find out more about the project results on our website. We hope that our partnership will return soon with a new edition of RIOTE project in the future. The main question has been the same since 2016 and it will remain the same also in the future: “How to bring people together by threatre events in rural environment across language barriers?”

We will keep on sharing news about the afterlife of the project.

What is the role of theatre in rural environment? Multiplier Events in Hungary and in Romania

On the 15th, 16th and 17th of September the RIOTE 3 project will present the final results of the partnership: the books Myth behind the community written by the partnership and the 9th sense written by Balázs Simon. The final Multiplier Events will be organized on the 15th as a conference in Pécs; on the 16th as a theatre performance in the Castle of Pécsvárad; and on the 17th as an international theatre forum in Cluj-Napoca.

Looking forward to meet and talk about the role of theatre in rural environment. For further information please visit the facebook events: Conference of the Myth behind the community on the 15th; Janus mystery and carnival theatre performance on the 16th; Out of the frame 2, International Theatre Forum.

The myth behind the community

The RIOTE 3 partnership is proud to present one of the results of their two years long collaboration. A quotation from the introduction written by Marco Luciano can give a taste of the book:

However, it is necessary to state that it is precisely in the incorruptible link between the creative and educational process that the many possibilities to cross complex and fragile scenarios, to experience places and languages in which actors and spectators confront ‘otherness’ and to produce new images, that new visions open, starting from history and memory.

From now the book is available in English on our page.

The translated versions are coming soon. 🙂

Towards the end of the project

The partnership will share very soon the main fruits of their last two years collaboration which are two important books in preparation: The myth behind the community and the Ninth sense.

We are very excited to share soon those intellectual fruits of our recent experiences hoping to offer something very actual and urgent resource for other European colleagues.

The RIOTE 3 project will end on the 30th September. The last project activities were in Hungary, in the Castle of Pécsvárad on the 25th June giving space to the “final partner meeting”, then in France, in Villars Apt from 1st to 3rd July to host the last joint staff training and also the French multiplier event on the 4th July.

Such a melancholic feeling arriving to the end of a two years long cooperation, but also towards the end of a six years long series of projects (RIOTE, RIOTE2 and RIOTE 3).

Projects are ending, but the partnership will remain to search for new pathways.

And now it is still an exciting moment of the present project, as soon we will be able to share the main results. The Romanian and Hungarian multiplier events will happen in September. We are looking forward!
