Each year, the “Focal Point” of the upcoming year will be explored by the “Exploration team”, who will find and document the work spaces that will potentially be inhabited by performances, demonstrations and the practical work of the “Focal Point” of the upcoming year. The material created by the “Exploration team” will be reviewed by Thomas Richards to judge the merits of the potential spaces for the “Focal Point” of the following year. The “Exploration team” will also find and document the young theatre groups, individual artists, cultural operators, organizers, scholars and intellectuals from the “Focal Point” country who wish to participate actively in the “Focal Point” of the following year, and also document young theatre groups, individual artists and scholars from the “Focal Point” country who wish to participate in the various projects, seminars, meetings in work that will take place outside of the “Focal Point” country, for example in the countries of the “Main Work”, the “Frame Work”, or the “Eastern Meeting-place” (see below).
