WE USE THEATRE

AS A TRIGGER

TO BUILD OPEN

AND WELCOMING

SOCIETIES.

ACTIONS is a theatrical performance as well as a communication tool. It brings together asylum seekers/refugees, local authorities, and social workers for a scripted encounter.

The project uses art to make communities and societies stronger, more united and more resilient to the increasing threats of social division in a polarised global environment.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

PANEL

LINE UP

We first identify a

PRESSING ISSUE regarding the reception of refugees in a local community —e.g., minors losing their rights when they come to age, housing, integration...

Then we invite the participants. They include:

  • local public authorities working in the field

  • representatives and/or volunteers from non-profit organisations

  • asylum seekers/refugees

INTERVIEWS

Regardless of their functions, we ask EACH AND EVERY PARTICIPANT

about their:

  • actions and inactions

  • experiences

  • capacities & limits

  • specific needs

If necessary, translators are provided to participants throughout the whole process.

SCRIPT

WRITING

Once we collected testimonies, we organise the MOST PERTINENT ACCOUNTS in a specific order, creating a script.

This script provides a complex overview of the situation, allowing points of contention to be voiced.

REHEARSAL

Participants gather to rehearse, in order to familiarise themselves with the structure of the performance. This stage is crucial for defusing tensions when conflicts arise.

Changes are made accordingly.

SCRIPTED PUBLIC

ASSEMBLY

The assembly takes place in a

PUBLIC SPACE — e.g. a town square, a community hall or a market.

 

The participants sit among the audience constituted by members of the local community, and the script is 

PERFORMED

CIVIL

ENGAGEMENTS

Each participant is asked to express their NEEDS & EMERGENCIES. These are listed on the evening program, which is also a registration form. Community members are invited to join the movement and make a commitment.
