For continuity of development and innovation, we are building bridges with partners so that productions large and small continue to arise on location and national and international talent continues to find its way to audiences.
A major European festival network Oerol participates in is IN SITU. This network stimulates the development of new forms of theatre and art in the public space. Oerol is one of nine core members, alongside a group of thirteen smaller co-organisers. The network covers nineteen countries in Europe. The exchange of artists and projects between these is set to grow in the years ahead.
With IN SITU, Oerol is co-producer of the following productions at Oerol 2013:
- Lotte van den Berg/ – Building Conversation
- Claire Croize / Action Scenique – Primitive
- Zweintopf – noneventeventmonuments
- Zimmerfrei – Hometown I Mutonia
- Thor McIntyre-Burnie / Aswarm – The Speakers
Marseille – Provence Cultural Capital 2013
We share an interest in our focus on the landscape with Marseille-Provence, European Capital of Culture 2013, to start with simply because our landscapes share great similarities. This year, recent Oerol productions by Karl van Welden, de Waterlanders, Tricyclique Dol and the Observatorium will travel to Marseille-Provence.
An exchange project that reflects this is the cooperation between the European training institute FAI-AR from Marseille and Oerol. This year, French and Dutch participants will be undertaking research into the development of public space on location in Vitrolles (South of France) and on Terschelling. You can read more about this under the residences.
