Dear friends of FURORE,
the FURORE team warmly invites you to this year’s digital edition of FURORE! We are happy to welcome you on our Website, Facebook und Instagram on July 24th from 11 a.m., where we will present short digital statements from the invited artists from Argentina, France, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Mexico, Germany and Switzerland.
After THE VOID, the theme of this year’s festival, became a global reality in a matter of weeks, we decided not to make any attempt at simply digitalizing the program of an analog theater festival. Instead, we wanted to use the resulting gap to pause and reflect on new paths and forms of our art. We invited all artists whose work was to be shown during the festival to participate in a new format, SCREAMING INTO THE VOID. What resulted were 8 brief digital statements engaging with the current VOID, the initially submitted projects, and the possibilities of making theater digitally. On July 24, from 11 a.m. we will publish one of these contributions every hour—both on our website and social media channels. You can see the full program here.
Based on these contributions, we would also like to invite you to a discussion on the theme of DIGITAL THEATER—VOID AND VISION. On July 24, 7:30 p.m. we will discuss different ways for the performing arts to cope with the current situation: should THE VOID be filled? If so, with what forms? The discussion will take place in English via the platform Zoom and be moderated by Sylvia Sobottka (Zürcher Hochschule der Künste).
Please register for the discussion before July 23 | 06:00 p.m. by writing to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, on July 25th, all the artists that would have come to Ludwigsburg can talk about their initially submitted projects and exchange ideas about different forms of performative arts in an internal Artist Talk.
We are looking forward to a digital encounter with you!
