Summary of project results


The aim of the project was to initiate a live connection between theatre people in Norway, Iceland and Hungary. The project promoter wished to spread information about the newest theatre trends and plays, which attempted to artistically investigate the topical issues and challenges of our countries. 1. A workshop for puppetry actors and students took place at the University of Theatre and Film in Budapest. Espen Dekko from Norway hosted the workshop which was also open for Hungarian acting students from abroad (Romania). 2. The international conference on theatre for youth, theatre and society at Jurányi Incubator House was attended by many professionals, with speakers from Norway, Iceland, Hungary and Romania. 3. Contemporary Norwegian plays were selected and 9 synopses were written in Hungarian. 4. They published and distributed the project volume titled Visszaszámlálás (Countdown) containing the conference papers, two Norwegian plays, 9 synopses and other articles. 5. The staged reading of the two newly translated Norwegian plays was a great audience success, performed by young actors from FAQ Company and K2 Theatre at the Jurányi House. One Hungarian expert travelled to Oslo for a study trip to collect new Norwegian plays and to establish a long-term cooperation with Norwegian partners (Dramatikkens hus, Theatre Museum, Theatre Academy).
