Last Friday (December 07) together with @natalia_skoczylas we had a call with Dimitar Uzunov a bulgarian director responsible for a summer school on Immersive Theater.
Dimitar is based on Sofia, where is responsible from Arte Urbana Collectif, we discussed possible interactions and collaboration with Trust in Play.
First he would be interested on having us (me or teacher from the Trust in Play faculty) to host a 3-hour panel during the 2019 school, this could be an opportunity for co-financing also in the future.
The school is called Summer Scriptwriting Base and will take place from July 31 till August 10 and the space for the talk is in the first 3/4 days, beginning of August.
Second we will have the calls (for our project and for their school) out at the same time, so it could be possible to have cross-communication, being aware that our audience are really different (his school cost around 400€, so if for middle career theater people).
Third, it could be interested on hosting some urban game in the contest of a Festival at the end of 2020 (after our mini-festivals).
So next step on this lead is to share the list of the teachers and workshops that we are having in Athens and propose a sequence of speakers for the 3 hours slot that we have on his school, so he can discuss the opportunity with the other organizers.
After the conversation with him and Natalia it emerges as interesting if we manage to contact Street Theater Festival Organizers, they are naturally interested on having cultural content and Urban Games usually fits really well, actually as Urban Games Factory we were involved on IN SITU (@sebquack is also part of their network), and we brought one of our games to their festival in Marseille the they’ve organized, it was a really cool experience.
And actually it was really important for us for internationalize our horizon.
