Iva Horvat Workshop-Mitsp

Internationalization of shows

Many Brazilian theater companies will lose the opportunity to present performances of great potential, due to the lack of knowledge on how to reach foreign producers. With experience heading artistic projects of great international impact, the Croatian artist and producer Iva Horvat, resident of Barcelona, Spain and founder of Art Republic, an office dedicated to the management of art projects, conducts a workshop on strategies for the diffusion and international circulation of performances. For 5 days, Iva will guide the attendants on how to plan for the internationalization of art projects, sharing techniques for the analysis of markets, participation in festivals and the discovery of the strong points of a project.

How do you show your work to foreign producers and curators in a strategic way? How do you expose your work to foreign audiences? Iva will introduce hands-on exercises for the attendants, so they can recognize how to prepare their projects. Attendants must apply for selection.

When: From 2/19 through 2/23, Monday to Friday, 10AM to 2PM.
Where: Itaú Cultural (Avenida Paulista, 149)
Participants: 20 professional artists + 1 audit-researchers
Target group: producers, curators, directors and solo artists. * Only one attendant per organization will be accepted.
Curator of Pedagogical Activities: Maria Fernanda Vomero

Due to the uniqueness of the proposal, the lack of knowledge about the subject in Brazil, and the significant amount of applications, MITsp has decided to open eight vacancies for guest students among non-approved applicants. Their projects won’t be looked into in-depth by Iva Horvat, but the guests will be able to join the group and follow the workshop in its entirety. Besides the guests, there will also be an audit-researcher. For those that were not selected, we have good news: Iva Horvat will also deliver an open lecture about the subject between the 19th and the 23th of February. Check the MITsp website soon to read the details on the event.
