ССA DAKH (Kiev, Ukraine) joins as new associated member of European Theatre Convention (ETC) in 2016/17
CCA “Dakh” joined European Theatre Convention (ETC) as associated member thanks to the project "Theatre, Freedom, Dialogue: European networking with theatres from Ukraine and Belarus" in the end of 2015 with the goal to further nourish and develop the newly created relations and contacts.
The selection of the theatres, one representing the state subsidized theatres (Kiev Academic Molodij Theatre), the other the oldest independent theatre scene in Ukraine (Dakh Theatre Kiev), took place after discussions with the theatres and the board of directors during the Ukrainian Theatre Showcase in Kiev last December 2015.
The European Theatre Convention (ETC) is a non-profit-making membership organization and a network of European public theatres founded in 1988 with the aims to create, protect and promote theatre art and its linguistic diversity in Europe and beyond; to act as a transnational theatre network to foster cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue; to act as a platform for professional exchange, development and capacity building of theatre-makers in an international context and to advocate for the public theatre sector at EU, member state and
local levels. The ETC has become the largest pan-European network of its kind, representing over 40 member theatres in 25 countries, 8,000.000 theatre goers, more than 11,000 taxpaying people employed by public theatres, thousands of artists in over 20 countries and 16,000 performances and public events per year.
