1Space project chose three projects for total support and production. Projects belong to Sofia Dinger from Portugal with Remah Jaber from Palestine, Chuma Sopotela from South Africa with Ahmed Tobasi from Palestine, and Ahmed Tobasi from Palestine with Adonis Nebie from Burkina Faso.
Eyad Houssami (Syria/France/Lebanon) was assigned to write a play script. Two projects of Urândia Aragão from Portugal and Zina Zarour from Palestine received partial support.
Between 21-27 March, the Project Proposal Evaluation Committee held its 4th Meeting on Project Development in Durban, South Africa, and in the context of the second phase of 1Space. The project is organised by the Royal Flemish Theatre KVC (Belgium), Alkantara (Portugal), and Exodus (Slovenia) in cooperation with the AMQF (Palestine). 1Space also involves Studios Kabako in Congo and Floating Outfit in Durban.
Over the upcoming months, projects selected by the committee will be further developed. To prepare them for participation in festivals in Europe and around the world, projects will be produced in early 2017.
1Space aims at focusing cooperation between partner institutions to produce performance arts jointly with artists from Europe, the region and Africa.
Members of the Shared Spaces Network were also briefed on developments achieved by 1Space.
