The network HOUSE on FIRE includes ten European theatres and festivals that, in recent years, have shown an active interest or even have played a central role in the development of this new paradigm. Indeed, the partners of HOUSE on FIRE pursue an international programming and co-production policy, based on the conviction that the arts have an essential role to play both in the communication between people and in the development of thought and debate about problems and challenges that our societies and the world are facing.
HOUSE on FIRE sets out to realize the following activities:
· Co-production and presentation of performing arts productions that have the ambition to make a contribution to the critical debate of issues on the political and social agenda (an artist-led approach);
· Organisation of multidisciplinary thematic projects, realized in close collaboration with Associated Partners from universities and civil society from all over Europe (a curator’s approach);
· Publication of a series of five copy-books, dedicated to thematic approaches in the performing arts (a theoretic approach).
HOUSE on FIRE is supported by individual partners and the Culture Program of the European Union (2007–2013). More info about the Program on the European Commission website
