Kortrijk Biennale by iwan brioc

Iwan Brioc was invited to give a master-class in Context Oriented Theatre at the Biannale of Interior Design in Kortijk, Belgium.  The hosts were TAAT (Theatre and Architecture, Architecture and Theatre) who build structures that are plays through which audiences travel.  Many interesting meeting points acknowledge with this exiting group and collaboration possibilities being developed.

Iwan has been working with Theatre for Dialogue in Kiev, offering workshops in Context Oriented Theatre and Rainbow of Desires as well as facilitating a blank forum evening and a Mindfulness taster for psychologists who work with people displaced by the war in the East.

Looking for trustees by iwan brioc

After being around for 15 years we have decided to take the plunge and become a registered charity.  The main reason for this is we need to secure core funding, to become more financially stable to attract the kind of funding which we have previously depended upon.

While we are not supportive of the way informal organisations are being marginalised by the changes in European funding and also the general criteria nowadays demanded of organisations just to enable the work to happen, we recognise that we have to adapt to survive.

We are therefore seeking people who are interesting in applying to become trustees of Theatr Cynefin.  Please get in touch if that is you.
