Call for projects: Focus Jeune Théâtre Européen
The Espace des Arts, regional repertory theater of Chalon-sur-Saône, the Jeune Théâtre National, French organisation supporting employability of graduates from European superior theater schools, and the Instant Mix Theater Lab, a multilingual theatre collective supporting transnational and cross-border creation, have joined forces to create a festival dedicated to emerging European theater artists, whose zero edition took place from 15 to 18 October 2020 at the Espace des Arts in Chalon-sur-Saône.
We are now launching the call for the 2021 edition.
