Stop-over flights are travels between different places and not just return flights from one place to another. They are travels that last longer, and take in more impressions, where one stays at a certain place before moving on. From this starting point a year ago Belluard Festival and August Dance Festival in Tallin, Estonia, proposed the Stop-Over Project: an exchange between 3 Estonian and 3 Swiss artists, who, with the help of a guide, shared practices during two residencies: one in Tallinn and one in Fribourg.
Artists : François Gremaud, Kadri Noormets, Valentine Paley, Jaak Sapas, Martin Schick, Veronika Vallimäe; Guide: Sophia New.
The Stop-Over Project is a production of Belluard Bollwerk International (Fribourg) and August Dance Festival (Tallinn). This is a cooperation project in the framework of the exchange programme with Central and Eastern Europe, initiated by the liaison office of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia in Warsaw.
