We are proud to announce that we have two new partner countries in the European Theatre Night – Czech Republic and Bulgaria, so this year manifestation will be held in 10 European countries.
Czech Republic joined the European Theatre Night as new co-organizer partner country with their Arts and Theatre Institute in Prague.
The Arts and Theatre Institute, www.idu.cz, as a governmental organization, funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, will organize and unite Czech theatres and artistic organizations in our project this year.
The Arts and Theatre Institute is very suitable as the main coordinator of Czech theatres and will be able to promote the event and provide necessary conditions for communication among participants.
The first edition of European Theatre Night in Bulgaria will be organized by Art Projects Foundation, Bulgarian Artist Union and Informburo Association.
From the beginning of 2013 they are planning and working on organization of the first Theatre Night in Sofia. After they found out about the European Theater Night they decided to join as coordinators for Bulgaria.
They have gathered almost all Theaters in Sofia, as well the Opera and ballet, for participating in the Night (for the first year they would like to test the project in their capital only and after that make it in all cities who would like to join it).
Art Projects Foundation focuses on the promotion and development of the performing arts in Bulgaria. Its goal is to develop a comprehensive program “Theatre culture and art” with the launch of European Theatres Night in Bulgaria. The “Night” will be an annual event and develop its geographical scale in the future, joining more and more Bulgarian cities.
The main goal of the Art Projects foundation is to develop the platform, to assist in solving problems in the sphere as an independent side, to support young artists and ensembles, and last but not least to promote the art among young audiences and communities that are not able or not having the possibilities to “touch” it.
