MAMUSKA NIGHTS - Newsletter June 2007

Welcome to the first Mamuska Nights newsletter!

We are happy to announce the birth of Mamuska Nights as an independent organisation providing a focal point of reference for artistic development and experimentation within structured social contexts that challenge established notions of performance and theatrical space.
Mamuska Nights’ mission is rooted on a genuine sympathy for artists and audience alike, bringing the two in close proximity, eradicating clich├ęd representational rituals and proposing the notion of events as an inclusive social dance capable of opening creative possibilities.

Mamuska Nights' vision is consolidated through a network of events built on informality and an active commitment towards cultural and artistic exchange, creating a rare continuum between local, national and international contexts.
