looking for a fellow artist, theatre/filmlover, partner in crime!!!!

Dear all out there!!

I’m looking for a partner in crime, crazy fellows all over the world who want to join into my travel adventure!

I’ve been working in theatre fort he last two years (directors assistant), took part in an off-scene group as an actress and worked for television two times…so all in all I had some good crazy interesting and exhausting years with no free time at all but a lot of learning and doing and learning by doing.
For the next year I decided not to get a steady job again, but to go out, travel the world, be free and make my own little art project……because this is for sure: I couldn’t stand one year without being creative!!!
Whats the point?
Whats the plan?
There is almost no plan at the moment (great feeling!), except for getting started this summer......and a lot of thinking I’ve already been doing. So now time has come to get everybody involved who wants to:

LET'S JOIN TOGETHER: hitchhike via Russia to China, making a film about it and see what might happen next....
or do a bike trip along the Donau to the Black Sea and make our way around it…..filming and experiencing everything....
..............or maybe somebody has a great film/theatre/art project going on himself and needs my help and work? I’m ready to jump on a plane and go wherever, sleep on a couch work for free (and my work is highly professional!) and just meet different people, different ideas about art, life.....the universe.

Traveling has always been an immense inspiration to me and I wonder what theatre might look like in China or if there isn’t a shooting going on in Australia.....
....you can call it crazy or naive or just stupid, maybe you're even right. But I’m going to set out and shoot for the moon. If I miss I’ll find myself among the stars;)

So everybody's help and ideas are welcome....or maybe you wanna join me....or want me to pass by on my way!
Cheers to all!

Hi Miriam,

I am a filmmaker from Los Angeles and I will be traveling through the Middle East starting in August- filming and traveling and creating art. I would love to work on a project together if you will be around the area, message me!

Hey Miriam & Veronica,

Serbia Travel Club, an association of independent, creative and investigative travelers, will be doing a travel-related project in Istanbul this summer, in July and August. In short, we'll make a free meeting point for travelers lasting for two months, but we'd like to do more than that: to use the creative synergy of all the people who'll pass through there and have them make something together. Please check out the page with the project details and let me know if it sounds like your cup of tea :)

Cheers,
Lazar

Hey Danny, Veronica and Lazar!

Thanks a lot for your answers! I will probably start traveling at the end of july and might actually be around the balkan area in august....nothing is sure yet. but I love the idea of the travelers house in Istanbul and I'd love to meet you all and get creative together.
thing is, right now I'm working myself through lots of emails and messages and invitations and I need some more time to decide where I will go first and what to do....

Take care and lets stay in contact!
Miriam
