Lille3000 proposes a call for projects for 2009.

Within the framework of its edition 2009, lille3000 is organising two events about the choreographic and the dramatic creation coming from Central and Eastern Europe, from the Baltic states to Istanbul, in order to bring to the fore the young talents of European dance and theatre and to explore the invisible borders of today’s Europe, twenty years after the fall of the Berlin wall.

Dance will be centre stage from 25 to 29 March 2009. Theatre will be centre stage from 5 to 7 June 2009.

To programme this festival, lille3000 is launching a call for projects which is aimed at the new generations of artists and companies of Central and Eastern Europe, from the Baltic states to Istanbul, who are little known or entirely unknown to French audiences, and more particularly at independent companies and artists working on the renewal of the language of theatre, researching new forms of representation and blending artistic disciplines.
