The BaNd network is Baltic / Nordic contemporary performing arts platform established by eight internationally active performing art organizations: Von Krahl Theatre (EST), New Theatre Institute of Latvia, Theatre and Cinema Information and Education Centre (LIT), Q-teatteri / Baltic Circle (FIN), University of Tampere Centre for Practise as Research in Theatre (FIN), Teaterhuset AvantGarden (NOR) and Inkonst (SWE).
BaNd: EXPANDED is a series of transdisciplinary ateliers for young performing arts professionals aimed at establishing long lasting, transdisciplinary international collaborations.
Six ateliers or LABS, one in each of the participating countries, focuses on artists’ mobility, professional training and mentoring, creative exchange and “work in progress” presentations. Each atelier has a unique theme and working format introduced by the hosting country, following a given umbrella theme – Definition of Tomorrow. In 2012, Baltic Circle is organising an atelier on the topic of art and activism.
The ambition of the BaNd network is to explore what is the theatre of future and what role it could play in our rapidly changing society.
