MUNICH - Following last year’s successful launch of the theatre on stilts project ‘Merula’ in Kosovo, the team gathers again in July to advance their skills and stage a performance on August 1 and 2, a tale that places a couple of young heroes and dreamers in exile.
The ‘Merula’ theatre on stilts group in Kosovo is motivated and excited to work on the continuation of last year’s project. This year a more advanced performance is planned, more elaborate in its content and staging.
Like last year, Peter Pruchniewitz, co-founder and member of the theatre company ‘Die Stelzer’ and drama writer Fjolla Hoxha from Kosova will cooperate with Xchange Perspectives e.V. (XCP) to realise the second phase of the project.
“We welcome you to Shadërvan in Prizren on August 1 and 2, towards sunset… We are about two meters tall, so there’s no chance of missing us,” says Fjolla.
Thanks to the funding provided by ‘Stadt Muenchen’, BMU and countless private donations, the financing of the follow-up is almost secured, but there are still funding gaps to be closed, especially to cover meals and transportation costs for the participants.
Please support the project ‘Merula -- Multilingual dialogic theatre on stilts in Kosovo’.
Location: Prizren, Kosovo
