Between the 15th October 2010 and the 15th February 2011, the UTE member theatres associated to create works dealing with the burning issues of Europe. They gave birth to a constellation of projects, all spread out around Europe: transnational collaborations, international coproductions, multi-lingual shows, colloquiums, public meetings, exhibitions and publications.
In this context of a fragmented profusion of events, the UTE decided to create the condition of possibility of an audience truly emancipated from the territory, a nomad audience! An audience composed of tourists, businessmen or women, theatre professionals, students and international journalists – on the frame of which the Nomade Europe Festival has been shaped.
In other words, instead of theatres going on a tour with their productions, it was the audience’s turn to travel. A challenge made possible thanks to subtitles, multilingual programmes and the UTEcard.
Finally, a virtual space – designed as a kind of map of theatrical and meta-theatrical events – was developed to offer visibility to the global programme.
