A grand EU project by Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium (NTL) / Odin Teatret
and 13 European co-partners
Next Exit: Freedom! is a part of Caravan Next, a large-scale Social Community Theatre collaborative project connecting professional artists with communities and local citizens. From September 2015 till February 2019 a huge network of European theatre organisations and cultural institutions creates Social Community Theatre events in 16 different European countries - www.caravanext.eu
In cooperation with various educational and welfare institutions in Freiburg and international partners, the participants will be coached by professional performing artists and teachers. Together they work on scenes to improve their personal skills in various performance technics and disciplines as for example shadow theater, rhythm and music, performing on stilts and dance.
The activities around this project culminates in a 4-day festival taking place in various community places representing the participant´s living environments. With workshops, public performances and parades, the outcome of our experiences and the scenes and pieces we develop together will be shaped into a theatrical form.
