Make a Move

Literature aimed for independent theatre artists & theatre enthusiasts

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Make A Move Handbook and of Special Monographic Issue of the journal “Mise en Abyme” – International Journal of Comparative Literature and Arts dedicated to Make a Move Project, “Debating Independent and Non-institutionalised Theatre in Europe”.

Read about:

  • MAKE A MOVE Art Incubator – its topics, implementations, findings
  • Artistic practices, experiences and challenges in terms of digital practices, site-specific practices, audiences and positioning in the business and journalistic context
  • Research findings on the non-institutionalised theatre sectors
  • Solutions to many challenges of the sector.

The Make a Move project executed and tested an innovative Art Incubator program. This program was designed particularly for non-institutionalised theatre practitioners and small independent cultural operators, primarily from the field of contemporary movement-based theatre.

The Make a Move project improved capacities of 45 independent, movement-based European artists to work transnationally and internationally, enhanced their professional skills, facilitated peer learning, education and training, improved their career opportunities to access new markets and reach new and wider audiences, enabled network possibilities, building partnerships and contacts. The Make a Move project was born as a way to bridge the gap between where we as an arts sector are now, and where we would like to be in the near future.
