Confronting the present, as they said
By François Fogel, Vice President of ASSITEJ

Thanks to the engagement of ASSITEJ Norway, the Nordic - Baltic network and their supports, 600 professionals of performing arts for young people attended the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering 2019 in Kristiansand, in the best possible conditions: an inclusive space, where people's contributions are strongly supported, and nourished by high quality performances. Of course, Norway is far up north, and everyone can't just buy a ticket and join in. But in its long history, ASSITEJ has organized big and smaller meetings in as many places as possible across the world. Geographical diversity is secured each time at least in the essential: that the artistic program must offer half local and half foreign performances, from all the continents. Organizers always arrange reduced prices to those coming from a low-income region. Next Generation cohorts - in Kristiansand, as always, the shiniest feature - gather young artists in a genuine melting pot, thanks to the money paid by the inviting festival and ASSITEJ's members. And for those who can participate, the Project group of the Executive committee, responsible for preparing the sessions of Artistic Encounters, deploys the finest methods of collective thinking, in order to give everyone a voice.

Yet, so many efforts to encourage plurality and spontaneity have consequences. In this respect, the 4th and last part of the Artistic encounters, dedicated to sustainability, went beyond our expectations, as the participants, including a group of teenagers from a local school, mischievously reminded us of the very contemporary nature of TYA. Young people: our audience, the talented ones who stand up for the climate by the millions around the world, to as far as the United Nations General Assembly. Young artists and producers, asking for a theatre reconnected with ecology and social responsibility. "Let's create a bank for re-using settings, props and costumes". "Let's organize rationalized tours". "Let's play outdoors". "Let's do yoga at work". "Let's address the place of the arts in urban planning". Suddenly, there was a new topic, and we all felt it has to be handled seriously, and over the long term. Sustainability isn't just cool. It is a big question mark over all our professional practices, and as theatre-makers we are generally more used to addressing the issues with all other people, but ourselves.

Needless to say that the carbon footprint is an even deeper challenge for ASSITEJ, a global association with members in 100 countries, preparing a world congress in Tokyo. Of all the European delegates in Kristiansand, only one dared to come by train. We have new questions and no answers, and we love it.

Revisit the Artistic Gathering!
 

Dialogue – The Community Performance Network collaborated with ASSITEJ at this year’s Artistic Gathering to document the conversations, workshops, and performances on offer in Kristiansand.

ASSITEJ TYA USA
 
Zooming out on our global impact
 

Executive Director of TYA/USA Jonathan Shmidt Chapman shares his reflections on attending his first ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering in Norway.

"I must admit that I rarely consider how we fit into a larger ecosystem beyond our borders. My perspective was completely changed after attending my first ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering this past month in Kristiansand, Norway. (...)

Through the range of ASSITEJ programming, I was able to contextualize the issues across the global TYA field alongside the geopolitical realities facing us all."

About not taking the plane to Kristiansand
 

Marijke De Moor, Secretary of ASSITEJ Belgium, wanted to see if she could travel to Norway in a more sustainable way.  

"I didn’t want to fly there (...). The main reason was to reduce my overall footprint and to reduce the ecological impact of this trip. 

I also think that we should put into practice the principles of ‘reframing the international’ that we propagate … We talk about it so much, but in the meantime we continue flying.
But first and foremost: I fully realise how privileged I am …"
