Meeting point – Barents performing artists

After 30 years of working with performing art and theatre in the Barents Region, Samovarteateret has developed a great network in the performing arts field in Russia. This have given us solid competence in how to create performances and projects across borders, languages, different cultures and competence.

In November 2019 we received economical support from the Ministry of Culture in Norway for the project «Meeting point – Barents performing artists».

Through this project, Samovarteateret wants to develope our network, and create new networks between experienced and brand-new performing artists in the Barents Region.

This project will create meeting points where knowledge, networking and artistic competence are shared and developed.

The kick-off meeting was held in Kirkenes in February 2020, with Norwegian and Russian participants.

The next meeting should be held in Arkhangelsk, Russia, in the period of 16th to 19th of March, but because of the ongoing Corona-pandemic we had to delay this meeting. We look forward to continue this work when possible.
