“Fabulamundi. Playwriting Europe: Beyond Borders?” is a cooperation project among theatres, festivals and cultural organisations from 10 EU Countries (Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Romania, Austria, Belgium, UK, Poland and Czech Republic). The network aims to support and promote the contemporary playwriting across Europe, in order to reinforce and enhance the activities and strategies of the professionals and artists working in the sector and to provide them with opportunities of networking and professional development. Based on the experience of the past Fabulamundi projects, the new project will mark a difference with the previous editions, maximising the impact and the diffusion of the methodologies and activities tested in the previous years and adding new EU scale initiatives. During the 43 months of project, an ongoing promotion of EU playwriting will be run: 16 dramaturgies (200 plays and 120 playwrights) circulated; 90 plays translated and circulated in the participating Countries through 8 international Artistic Programs; 40 plays published in a foreign Country; the first edition of an EU Festival are some of the main results. An ongoing training program will be launched for 80 playwrights and for participating organizations, with a specific focus on technical skills. The Fabulamundi Audience Development strategy and the Fabulamundi training methodology for playwrights will be designed, assessed and disseminated at EU level, and the Fabulamundi EU Network created to ensure the sustainability of the project after its end. This edition of the project will address the theme “Beyond borders?”: a wide social and cultural reflection on the urgent theme of barriers and borders overcoming, with a specific attention to refugee and asylum seekers and immigrants.
