Dear Members of the TC,
Summer holidays are ending, and we’re all gearing up for a new exciting theatre season.
I hope you all had a relaxing vacation.
Our joint meeting with Opera Europa at the Showtech in Berlin on 17th and 18th of June can be called a success.
Regarding our TC projects I’d like to sum up the most important ones.
- The Support to practitioner’s project is evolving, slowly but steadily.
Thanks to the EduCom and my visit to Bulgaria, we gathered more contacts and information, and are expanding our network.
- The schedule of the Technical Invention Price, or TIP had been set, and it looks like this:
Now: information on the OISTAT website + special TIP address: firstname.lastname@example.org
September 2009: presentation at the WSD2009 in Seoul
Publication on all OISTAT member websites.
September 2010: end date for entrances, start of the work of the international jury.
January 2011: editing and printing the results
June 2011: presenting the book AND the price at the PQ2011 in Prague
- We decided on a joint meeting with the Architecture commission at the World Congress in Seoul, Friday, 18th of September.
Can everybody who will be there confirm this asap?
- At the WSD, a workshop was planned around the old theatre technical trick “Pepper’s Ghost”
Unfortunately, the main sponsor of this event bailed out, so we have to cancel it.
As I said, our joint meeting and discussions with the Technical Production Forum of Opera Europa were a success, and both parties are longing for more.
That is why we decided to try to organize another joint meeting on 27 – 30 may 2010 in Rotterdam.
We’re trying to make it an official invitation this time.
I hope to meet you soon in Seoul or on one of these coming events.
