A MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF THE EXPERIMENTAL STAGE FOR EMERGING ARTISTS
The National Theatre of Greece’s Experimental Stage for Emerging Artists continues its dynamic progress with renewed vigour, having for the first time in its history – and for the next two years – women in charge. The aim of the Experimental Stage is to be a place for meetings, discussions and subversive ideas. By giving creators a space where they can approach the performing arts in a fresh and unique way, we wish to breathe new life into the theatre and the way we perceive it in practice.
This year, artists were chosen whose very particular perception of theatre brings new drama and unexpected material and themes to the stage. We seek to embrace diversity and give visibility and a forum to people and stories that are often absent from the public discourse.
The main programming will be framed by parallel events and discussions around themes relating to the performing arts and current social issues. By opening this round of discussions, we hope that the Experimental Stage will be a space for meaningful dialogue and discussions, especially in an era in which there is an enormous need to communicate and exchange thoughts and ideas.
My fervent wish is that this year the Experimental Stage will again be a place of activity and creativity, a place of unexpected encounters, a place for thinking, and a place you will want to come back to.
