This is Melting Plot.
3 different cities,6 events,9 artists from different cities with a single mission:
the creation of a European story for a European audience.
Melting plot Idea
1 writer, 1 musician and 1 visual artist from the cities of Madrid, Turin and Vienna will be selected to participate in the Melting Plot.
6 events will be held, 2 in each participating city. Each artist will be involved in 2 events, in 2 different cities. The written texts (each around 25.000 characters) will be translated into the other languages of the project, plus English. A documentary DVD of the music and the visual art, plus a book containing the texts, will be published in the four languages as well.
The 9 artists selected for the project will be placed by the jury into groups of 3. Each ensemble will consist of a writer, a musician and a visual artist. Each participant in the group will be from a different one of the cities involved.
Together, the 3 artists will create and perform a unique story for the public, a “story” that through the international, cross-cultural and trans-regional inputs illuminates the multi-faceted nature of contemporary Europe. Europe has become a melting pot, and the Melting Plot project highlights and demonstrates this new cultural dynamic.
The events will take place in April, May and June 2013.
