Great News!
Follow-up EU-project was selected! 
We are delighted to announce that the follow-up project PLATFORM shift+  - Digital challenges in the theatre for young audience was selected as one of  the Larger Scale Cooperation Projects in the EU-programme Creative Europe. It consists of 11 partners from 9 countries – ten theatres and a university. The leading organisation Pilot Theatre (York (GB) is one of the UK’s most renowned companies in delivering performance work for young people and exploring innovative approaches to making and sharing work.

The artistic network was created to meet the new challenges of producing theatre for young people in the digital age. The partners have identified the urgent need to engage with digital technology in order to understand the target audience. To achieve this the partners plan a major investment in the professionalization of theatre makers on an international level.
Within 4 years of collaboration (2014-18) PLATFORM shift+ will develop 40 theatre productions based on newly developed plays/concepts, correlated to the reality of the digital age. In more than 50 activities it will connect theatre makers directly with young people in an artistic dialogue.An extensive programme of interrelated activities will encourage transnational exchanges of artists/artistic products and provide training in digital technology through practice and international Creative Forums. At the end of the project 10 Creative Forums all over Europe will offer training programmes and tools for sustainability of progress and ambition.

As soon as we will have a new website, we will link it with this site.
