The registrations are open for the European project “People Power Partnership”, where “Radu Stanca” National Theatre is one of the partners: auditions between 12-14 February 2021

“People Power Partnership” (PPP), the most recent project of Creative Europe in which TNRS is a partner, together with 13 other cultural institutions from 11 European countries, launches this month the registration for the auditions in Sibiu. After cities like Lisbon, Loulé, Varazdin and Prague, the project leader representatives, Pan.Optikum Action Theatre in Freiburg (Germany) will coordinate the selection process of young hip-hop lovers aged between 18 and 25, during 12-14th of February 2021. The project “People Power Partnership” will be active for four years, from October 2020 to October 2024, and it is a participatory theatre project intended for public space, which facilitates authentic and long-lasting meetings between young people, in an artistic context.

The registration for the auditions - designed for the new generations

The registration for the auditions consists in sending a video in which the candidates can freely express their passions and their motivation for participating in such a project. The registration details will be presented on the local Instagram account of the project, @ppp_sibiu, and the project’s evolution can further be followed on the Instagram official page @people_power_partnershipThe registrations will start on Saturday, January 9th, and the deadline for sending the videos is January 25th.

During this project, 104 young adults coming from the partner cities will develop 13 independent productions, but also a final large-scale Outdoor performance, which will be presented in a tour, through the 11 partner cities, within some prestigious international festivals. The auditions will be held live, and all measures will be taken to ensure the safety of the participants, in accordance to the current sanitary rules.

“Radu Stanca” National Theatre in Sibiu and Pan.Optikum Action Theatre – continuity within the community

“People Power Partnership” (PPP) is the second European project organised by Pan.Optikum Action Theatre where TNRS is also a partner. The first project of this kind, named “Power of Diversity – The Crossing Lines”, was organised during 2015-2018 and one of its aims was supporting talented youngsters, with this continuing even after the project ended. After the auditions in 2016, the young people that were selected took part in workshops and rehearsals held in Sibiu by the artistic team in Freiburg, the result being a performance that was presented in FITS 2016. Two of these young adults, Athena Gândilă and Mihail Vass, were chosen to join the following chapters of the project, which mainly took place in Freiburg – creating a large-scale outdoor performance – but also in the other partner cities, including in Sibiu, in the Big Square, during FITS 2018. When the first project ended, Athena and Mihail kept in contact with the organising team, and they will also be involved in the most recent project, “People Power Partnership”. They were co-opted as part of the team in Freiburg and will help the new participants with their know-how and previous experience.

Starting tomorrow, the young enthusiasts of dance and rap music in Sibiu are welcome to join a new challenge!
