An Impulse is an activity that the Workcenter team will conduct with the duration of approximately one month, and which will include performances, Actions and seminars. Impulses are designed to bring to three co-organizing countries (France, Cyprus and Bulgaria), the work of the Workcenter team once in each country during the three years. In one month Tracing Roads Across will unfold all of its possibilities of interaction: seminars, exchanges of work with young theatre groups and ensembles, public projections of documentary films, public conferences, demonstrations of Actions, and public performances.
One of the main intentions of Impulse in these three countries will go towards the co-organizing institutions themselves, the Centre Dramatique National de Normandie Comédie de Caen (Caen, France) the University of Cyprus (Nicosia, Cyprus) and the For a New Bulgarian University Foundation (Sophia, Bulgaria). These co-organizing institutions will propose the groups, individuals, spectators, and participants who will be engaged in the activities: their students, actors, organizers, other individuals etc. During Impulse in Caen, for example, a contact will be established with the students of C.D.N.s C.R.E.T., Centre de Recherche et dExpérimentation Théâtrale. This contact will be deepened in the frame of the Intervention (see below) in Caen in July 2005. In Cyprus, a contact will be established with several theatre groups. Impulses will generate, in the time-span of one month or so, a strong and intense confrontation between the local creative and organizing reality and the projects artistic team.
