Super cool after-movie and detailed ‘thank you’ post of KaravanAct Festival 2018 😊
– Thank you for the financial backing without which none of this would have been possible: Administratia Fondului Cultural National (AFCN, The Administration of the National Cultural Fund), Departamentul pentru Relatii Interetnice (DRI), Nemzeti Kulturális Alap (NKA), Winkler Gyula and Sógor Csaba (Members of the European Parliament, RMDSZ-UDMR), the company of Kerekasztal Színházi Nevelési Központ, and everyone who bought a ticket, or donated online or in situ.
– A very big thank you to our partners, who have contributed in numeorus ways to the success of the project, making us feel for the first time in 3 editions that our dream of KaravanAct becoming a real trans-Transilvanian community event just might be possible: Kolozsvári Magyar Napok, Facultatea de Teatru şi Film / UBB Cluj, Galeria Quadro, Daisler Print House, AMM Design, Harag György Társulat, Szatmárnémeti Brighella Bábtagozat, StreetMusic Festival Satu Mare, Posticum, Szigligeti Színház Nagyvárad

We are a collection of theatre companies, programmers and film makers who are passionate about rural and outdoor performance.
We are researching diverse and approachable styles of outdoor theatre which can surprise, challenge and relate intimately to people’s lives. We are interested in outdoor theatre’s potential to reach new audiences who are not necessarily theatre goers.
The UK has a Rural Touring Network which is a nationwide initiative developed over the past 50 years. It takes brilliant performances to remote communities with the help of local people. The UK is one of the only countries to have such a network and we, at RIOTE, are want to create one that reaches across the whole of Europe.
Companies from Italy, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and the UK have created RIOTE – “Rural Inclusive Outdoor Theatre Education”; a three year project which will enable the companies to visit each other and learn from their approach to outdoor and rural theatre. We also showcase each other’s work across Europe and bring high-quality theatre to rural areas.
