1 Production B: Penelope Project 2014 Responsible: Viirus Theatre, Finland Production A: Memories for Life

2 Meeting the Odyssey is a social and artistic collaborative project sailing from the Baltic to the Mediterranean Sea. Each summer from 2014 to 2016, artists and organizers from different European countries will travel together, giving workshops and performing theater pieces. The project will combine elements of the Odyssey, contemporary themes relevant to Europe and stories collected through exchanges with the local population. But Meeting the Odyssey is also a journey in itself: bringing people together through long term collaboration, and discovering new artistic landscapes and cultural attitudes to develop synergies at the European level.. An Adventure Beyond Art, Myths, and Everyday Life in Europe 2013 – 2017

3 What is Europe today? Who are the people living in Europe compared to who they were? What is their personal Odyssey? This project asks: what is the common Europe behind the commitment of the European Union? Is there a common ground based on culture and daily life? How can we be reminded of our common roots? The project aims to decrease prejudices and to create a shared narrative that comes out of the stories of the people in Europe today, through the frame of the legend of Odysseus. For a meaningful discussion about a sustainable and inclusive European culture and a creative future, we need to cross national borders to meet people from different contexts with different perspectives on Europe. Project ambition

4 This will happen  We will create 4 artistic productions with international teams  We will 14 locally created actions, called «Instants»  We will develop new methods of creating theater performances in a social theater context  We will create a network of theaters and festivals all over Europe  We will give the chance to a minimum of 65 artists to be on board of the ship and 30 more to be involved  We will create a hybrid language for theater that can be used in international co-productions  We will document and share the process in the form of recordings, media, written evaluation, the performances  We will produce new research linked to the project that will ensure the lasting and dissemination of the project results. The focus of the research will be on intercultural dialogue, artistic mobility and European identity  We will create unity and solidarity among the partners and the people involved in the project
