Date and address: Thursday 8 July at 11:00 am | Novotel, 20 Boulevard Saint-Roch, 84000 Avignon.

The conference will be followed by a lunch with the participants, during which it will be possible to

The project “PROSPERO – Extended Theatre”, supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission (2014-2020), is a continuation of the “European Theatre Network” project supported by Europe from 2008 to 2012. PROSPERO has continued its work and has helped to support productions by, among others, Thomas Ostermeier, Teatro Praga, Katie Mitchell, Bobo Jelčić, Angelica Liddell, Milo Rau, Christine Letailleur, Anne-Cécile Vandalem, among others.

“PROSPERO – Extended Theatre” is a challenge to artists, professionals and spectators, another way of addressing the very question of possible European identity: a certain culture of openness.
