Daylight is a project, which aims to approximate the countries of Northern and Southern
Europe through research and Theatre Practice. The research and artistic work developed by the
students/actors of the various participating countries will be developed through rehearsals at
Teatro Taborda, Lisbon, field trips and fieldwork that not only introduce them to Portuguese
geography and culture, but also promote and strengthen the exchange and sharing of
experiences among participants, under the symbolic and significant theme of the Sun. By the
end of this process, a show will be performed in Lisbon at Teatro Taborda and our wish is that it
may be presented, as well, in each of the participating countries.

The primarily idea is to develop a project which involves drama students from the
Scandinavian and Mediterranean. Firstly the participants will come to live in Lisbon and work
together at Teatro Taborda. During a period of two months they will work side by side with the
artistic team of Teatro da Garagem, aiming the creation of an artistic object. In the end they will
publicly present it. They will also have the opportunity to explore and learn the Portuguese
language and culture.
To make all this doable, taking into consideration the actual situation all over Europe, it is our
intention to develop partnerships with different Universities through their international offices.
Having Erasmus plus funding the residencies of the participants through its mobility action, it will
be less expensive for us, organizations behind this partnership.
Daylight Project aims a theatres research and creation. Having universitys drama students
and professionals of the same area of studies as a target group, the project will develop around
field research activities and labs regarding critical depth and the materialization of scenic
In the work to be developed, focused on theatre practices, will be offered pathways around
artistic creation having as a starting point a group of immersive experiences field research
activities. Those activities aim the development of creation awareness, in a way that, gradually,
the people involved recognize and consolidate their own strategies and working methods.
The labs aim to provide the students with tools for scenic embodiment, in a technical and
logistical level (light, sound, multimedia, stage mechanic and presence), to enable them to
deepen their professional skills associated with performing arts.
The international dimension of the project promotes a dynamic sharing of different cultural
experiences, grounded in a common purpose of inter-knowledge, collaboration and mobility.

The project will take place in 2015, from June to July. At the beginning of each module it will
happen some field research activities. There are three different modules planned for the
Daylight Project that will be developed around three different generic topics.
For the field research activities it will be predefined some trips to specific places. It will also
be predefined all the technical and methodological aspects one considers necessary. During
that field trips and visits to the chosen places, according to each topic, the group will collect,
process and prepare several kinds of materials. Those collected materials will be organized
according with the following tabulation: visual materials, written material and collected objects.

During the period relative to the labs it will occur the following steps:

Inventory of all the collected and developed materials;

Definition of a work project;

Experimentation and rehearsals;

Completion of the project from a collaborative creation point of view.

To underline the end of the project the final objects from the three different labs will come
