The project foresees the participation of 3 Italian associations (AllegroModerato, Accademia Arte della Diversità, ZeroFavole/Babilonia Teatres) in the International art festival (music, dance, theatre, painting) along with the disabled, organized by Cre-Arte (an AMI and AMG partner since 2009) in Bariloche from November 1-10, 2017.
Participation in this festival is the result of the Cre-Arte tour in Europe (2015, supported by AMG/AMI) and comprises the first of two phases of the “Theatre, dance and music of difference” Exchange among the Cre-Arte associations, the Accademia Arte della Diversità, AllegroModerato and ZeroFavole (2015 e 2016, supported by AMI). Eighty artists from various countries (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Spain, Australia and Italy) participate in the festival.
The Italian associations contribute to the festival with performances and concerts in the main theatres and auditorium of the city, by undertaking workshops, participating in meetings and conferences to exchange experience, methodologies, visions and perspectives in the field of artistic work with the disabled, recognizing their individual skills and professionalism. In particular, the Accademia Arte della Diversità adapts to the local level “Le impronte dell’anima” (“Huellas del Alma”), a piece translated and co-produced by the Accademia e Cre-Arte, offering professional training to theatre workers and youth with disabilities who participate in the adaptation of this performance. The AllegroModerato Orchestra undertakes joint music sessions with two local orchestras (Orquesta del Bicentenario and Orquesta Cofradia) and provide music workshops to the young disabled beneficiaries from Cre-Arte, as well as training for local musicians in promoting music and disability workshops. At the Festival Art X= ZeroFavole presents “Paradiso”, a performance realized in collaboration with Babilonia Theatres, which debuted in Rome on November 4 as part of the RomaEuropa Festival, along with offering workshops on theatre and disabilities for the theatrical students at the Universidad de Rio Negro.
During the Festival the Italian associations visit the activities undertaken by Cre-Arte in Bariloche, and participate in round-tables and seminars with representatives from various countries.
