EUNIC cluster Jordan
EUNIC Jordan is organising on the 11th of May a hunt for creativity in various locations around Jebal Weibdeh. School groups and members of the public will be set challenges and ‘hunt’ for creativity around Jebal Weibdeh, an area which is considered to be the hub of creativity in Jordan. Each location will have a challenge which teams need to solve in order to unlock the next clue. Hamzet Wasel supports the event. It will take place during 3-7pm.
On the 7th of May at the Ministry of Culture Theatre, Jebal al Weibdeh in Amman, you have the opportunity to join a one-day workshop with Scarlattine Teatro from Italy. You can learn new ways of creativity at theatercombining animation and new technologies. See use of comics projected live for a theater performance developing a funny, original and highly visual technique. The event is intended for young actors and university drama students.
Do you remember the 'My animated world' competition from Creative Industries Jordan about submitting a 2D, 3D, or stop-motion animation that you have made? Could you be one of the lucky winners? Great opportunities await! Come and find out who will be the next Rubicon young talent and watch screenings of the best animation talent in Jordan. You will also have the chance to meet some of the artists who work at Rubicon and find out what it takes to join their team. The event will take place at the outdoor theater of Al Hussein Park on Friday, 10th of May at 7.30pm. The entrance is free and open to everyone.
For Europe Day, 9th of May, EUNIC Jordan organises an event with the Italian Botega Dance Company and the Zakharef Dance Collaborative. Hip Hop and contemporary dance are weaved together in this exciting performance of world-renowned Italian dancers. There will also be a performance of the outcome of the residency – Jordanian and Italian dancers will perform side-by-side. This performance is part of the Zakharef in Motion festival and will take place at the Al Hussein Cultural Centre, Ras al Ain at 7.30pm.
A couple named only Hercules and Cassandra live in a cookie-cutter house and when they go on a little holiday to the sea, magical things happen. The actors interact with a live hand-drawn background and the adventure unfolds. Scarlattine Teatro will perform ‘Manolibera’ at the National Center for Culture and Arts in Amman when the audience will be brought into the adventures of two real-life characters that perform their funny and poetic stories on a screen that has turned into a big sketch pad.
So you think you can animate? Would you like to win a once in a lifetime internship opportunity at Rubicon, and show your talent to one of the best international animation companies? Submit a 2D, 3D, or Stop-motion animation that you have made already (max. 7 minutes).
