The Evolving Theater: signature of a charter of collaboration
2011/07/19 in Blog
Conceived in the context of the Chantier des savoirs partagés by the le Bureau d’Études, Marjetica Potrc and Ooze, the Théâtre Évolutif is a collaborative artistic project which invites artists, architects, residents and associations to imagine the possible evolution of a place in the heart of Bordeaux in urban re-qualification: Place André Meunier. Architectural structures, landscaping and a program of concrete actions will be developed with all volunteers, in respect for the surrounding ecosystem.
With the accompaniment of Gabi Farage, , associate commissioner of the artistic direction of EVENTO, all the participants – residents, visitors, members of neighborhood associations (the André Meunier collective, Friche and Cheap, Yakafaucon, ATD quart monde, La Cabane à gratter, l’Epicerie solidaire…) as well as all of the associated artists – met last Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. at the Pl. André Meunier to sign a collaboration charter.
Collectively drawn up last week, this charter’s objective is to establish the very foundations of this experimental creation and to commit the participants to a common philosophical and participative process.
In addition to the artistic and experimental aspects, the Théâtre Évolutif would like to open the debate and to provide cultural and personal accompaniment for the local population to bring them toward a more ecological and respectful model with regard to the environment.
This project, which will be an unprecedented moment for creation and reciprocal exchange between residents, experts and artists, a symbol of the urban utopia, indispensable to this re-evolution, will be in permanent creation/evolution until October 16.
