„Apollo” International Poster Exhibition

The deepest emotions and experiences of the human spirit as Community and as Self are encoded in the atemporality. In the greek mythology, the god Apollo is the patron of the arts, healing and prophecy. Since the tradition of the theatre is close related to the ancient greek culture and because we try to put "skepsis" in everything we do, we decided to give the name of the ancient god Apollo to our festival - beliving that the art hides in its essence visionary dimensions that can help us discover subtle meanings of reality, healing valences derived from the mysterious meeting between the artist and the public, but most of all because we wish that this festival become a permanent invitation to expression not just for theatre, but for other arts  too. Apollo is not just a festival , is an exploration of the human spirit, a celebration of it's creativity and passion.”

Project description

The organizers propose to continue this project which was  a premiere for Alba County 2 years ago, dedicated exclusively to the theatre and the poster as art object. The exhibition will take place within the 4-th „Apollo” International Youth Theatre Festival 2017.

 The proposed theme for the poster is „BREAK A LEG”. The poster must contain the following text:
„BREAK A LEG! - International Youth Theatre Festival”

We challenge  artists from the entire world to create their own poster concept.

"Break a leg" is an idiom in theatre used to wish a performer "good luck". Well-wishers typically say "Break a leg" to actors and musicians before they go on stage to perform. The origin of the phrase remains obscure. The expression reflects a theatrical superstition, in which wishing a person "good luck" is considered bad luck. The expression is sometimes used outside the theatre, as superstitions and customs travel through other professions and then into common use. Among professional dancers, the traditional saying is not "break a leg", but "merde". For playwrights, it's sometimes changed to "break a pencil."  ( wikipedia)

The APOLLO - International Youth Theatre Festival wishes to extend the dimensions of social, cultural and artistic life of the young people of Alba Iulia. That is why the project team proposes the organisation of an International Youth Theatre Festival Apollo, second edition, in the city of Alba Iulia, Romania. The festival will be an open invitation for 44 young actors (members young theatre companies, 34 from outside Alba Iulia and 10 from the Skepsis N.G.O) to come together, learn and perform for the young population of Alba Iulia, Romania.

The festival is organized in partenership with the local authorities and institutions and NGO entities like the Inter-Art Fundation from Aiud. During 3 days of festival,  a series of different shows will be presented for the public - as the invited groups coming from different schools and orientations in their theatre vision, having different backgrounds. We are very confident that the first of the project's objectives, to attract at least 300 young people to participate at every show which will be rich and full, as the home theatre group, Skepsis, is already a popular name in the young cultural life of Alba Iulia, and the guest groups will be carefully selected.
The young groups invited and the project team will have the opportunity to participate at 2 workshops presented to them by a lector, well known professional director recognized for his work with young groups in similar events held all over the world. The purpose of the workshops is to enlarge the artistic horizon of the young actors and the project team.  Individual and group performance of the project team and the other participants will grow in quality during these workshops which will be focused on the actor's art - tehniques  and exercises on movement, diction, concentration, atention, non-verbal communication, emotions and other dimensions of drama.

Discution sessions will be held also for the team project and representants of theatre groups with the expert invited so that important cultural and artistic management concepts will be shared.

Being present to all the activities proposed, the participants will have the opportunity to enlarge their artistic and cultural performance and also to obtain important concepts and learn a lot about cultural and artistic management for the future. They will learn how to raise the quality of their artistic perfomance on the theatre scene, but also how to enhance their social actor abilities on the social scene.
