Staféta (Legacy), Tender for Theaters
In the autumn of 2016, Municipality of Budapest with the help of Independently Together Association (Füge Produkció) announced the tender called STAFÉTA – which means relay race in English – for the second time to support talent management and independent performing arts. The aim of the project is to support independently theatre initiatives of the capital city by providing financial support and possibility for the emerging theatre artists and groups to show their talent and work to a broader audience. For the call of this year, 90 applications were submitted. Based on the decision of the Advisory Board seven productions will be shown in 2017 as part of the “STAFÉTA”.
Nominated by Gabriella Liptay:
‘I am happy that finally, also here in Hungary, an initiative to support independent theaters was born, that provides financial resources, thus an opportunity for such companies to present themselves. All this was organized with the help of FÜGE (Independent Theater Productions and Studios) and Jurányi House, that guarantee that the desired productions will be staged in a very exciting location and in an environment of true professional quality’
