From 2008 to 2012, six theaters have established a cooperation mechanism with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union: the Prospero project.

Théâtre National de Bretagne (Rennes, France) – coordinator
Liège Theatre (Belgium)
Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione (Modena, Italy)
Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz (Berlin, Germany)
Göteborgs Stadsteatern (Sweden)
National Theatre of Croatia / World Theatre Festival Zagreb (Croatia)
The Athens and Epidaurus Festival(Greece)
