In Romania, the lack of performing arts infrastructure has been a challenge for many years, affecting both the audience, which has limited access to theater performances, and the non-subsidized theaters and artists, who face difficulties in reaching new audiences.
To increase theater consumption, we have set out to create a mobile stage through which we organize tours in rural and small urban areas. The project focuses on Brasov, Sighisoara, Medias, Rupea, Sona, Hoghilag, Prod, Porumbacu de Sus, Viscri, Biertan, Richis, and Cisnadie.
The project “Unteatru, Mobile Theatre” targets several specific groups, including at least 1100 participants in theater tours, aged between 14 and 99 years. Additionally, 16 specialists will be involved in the project through employment. The direct beneficiaries include the audience, who will have increased access to cultural consumption, the performance’s production team, a photographer and the specialists involved. The indirect beneficiaries are the residents of the 12 communities where the performance will take place, the collaborating artists, the employees of unteatru and the members of the Saxon community.
The project proposes formal and informal training activities for the theater team, the development of the mobile stage, the production of a performance and 12 photography exhibitions focused on the culture of the Saxon community. Through this project, the aim is to create new jobs, support a small and medium-sized enterprise, as well as develop the professional skills of the specialists involved.
