SEAS/Second Wave 2005

SEAS/Second Wave 2005

19 January 05 - 19 January 07

SEAS/Second Wave is the aftermath of the bubbling creative energy released during 2003-2004, when co-productions were built and presented in cities around the Adriatic and Baltic Seas. In 2005, we visit new cities, with three new artworks in our baggage. Five SEAS presentations will take place in 2005: Rijeka (Croatia), Koper (Slovenia), Stockholm (Sweden), Podgorica (Montenegro) and Helsinki (Finland). _____________________________________________ SEAS/Rijeka (Croatia) 12-19 june 2005 As many other medium-sized cities around Europe, Rijeka is shrinking in permanent population.
