The opening event of the project PASSAGE 23°E took place on July 8th 2016 in Berlin's Art Quarter Bethanien. Through films and encounters it raised issues regarding the understanding of and knowledge about the theatre developments in Central, Central Eastern and South Eastern Europe.
The project PASSAGE 23°E is a joint research project of institutions, universities, archives and artists focusing on theatre and forms of theatrical expression in the national and regional cultural areas of Central, Central Eastern and South Eastern Europe over the last 25 years.
The project Passage 23°E's main target is the collective development and long-term implementation of a common information and documentation system with regards to a European culture in its historical, current and future dimensions.
Within this project it is intended to enhance the intellectual, artistic, journalistic as well as general approach to knowledge and experience regarding theatre and theatricality of these regions. To visualize these knowledge structures and to give access to them is thus expressed as one of the most relevant outcomes of this project.
