I have served to a EU-funded project called Roots and Routes in Germany back in June 2014 and unwittingly, found myself in a massive supply chain shaped for creativity.
The idea behind the project was to get European young artists and creative individuals together in order to establish a 1-hour show in Cologne, by including almost every artistic discipline in it: actors, musicians, visual artists, painters and dancers. In order to avoid chaos, we established an “artistic” way of supply chain that stood for the prospective smooth running of the schedule – and it worked!
First the actors came up with the script, we musicians wrote a musical score for it, then the visual artists (along with sound and light specialists) created background images and stage decorations that did fit with the atmosphere.
Overall, the experience was a thrilling journey!
