THE CHOSEN ONES WAKE UP
Premiere of Teatar Mimart, March 12th in Centre for Cultural Decontamination, at 20h
EC project ''Wake Up''
’’The Chosen Ones Wake Up’’ by Teatar Mimart researches awakeness on an interpersonal level, through the awakened spirit, mind and body, along with the wide-awakeness of the community which is the driving force of society. The concept is based on a series of phantasms which connect waking up with the transcedence of reality, therefore their succesivity is conditioned by the unpredictable dramaturgy of a dream. Our goal is to set imagination in motion, to create a new myth which encompasses and initiates awakeness. The open process of work creates an engaged transmedial performance through the dramaturgical modification. Premiere was on March 12th in Centre for Cultural Decontamination, Belgrade.
Project ’’The Chosen Ones Wake Up’’ is a part of European project Wake Up, ''Culture 2007-2013''.
