An inclusive theatrical experience for young girls, some of whom with Eating Disorders (ED), patients at the Italian Hospital Group of Guidonia Montecelio (Rome)
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To undertake artistic/creative endeavours, also with the participation of a group of young women affected by eating disorders.
To enable the young participants to express their emotions via puppet theatre, a method that mediates the relationship the girls have with themselves and the outside world.
To involve the participants in interpreting and rediscovering themselves and their bodies
An integrated group of about 14 girls, among whom 8 between the ages of 16 and 26 who are patients at the Italian Hospital Group in Guidonia Montecelio (Rome)
“Piccole donne crescono” is an experimental research project which, through inclusive theatrical experience, investigates eating disorders.
Anorexia is often manifested during adolescence, a phase of life in which one becomes preoccupied about one’s body changing, sexuality and generational conflict. Unable to recognize their own identity, anorexic girls are unable to conclude their own evolution. Starting from these precepts, the workshop uses the stories of the four characters of the novel “Little Women” to involve the participants in “interpreting and rediscovering themselves and their bodies.”
The project foresees the realization of a theatrical workshop composed of 25 meetings, each 3 hours long.
Work begins by investigating the five themes central to the novel: sisterhood, improvement of self, attention to work, the importance of being independent, and dreams and expectations in relation to the future.
The participants are guided to improvise by choosing a character in the novel and using images, videos, photographs and music to build that character’s identikit.
Starting with a physical as opposed to mental approach, beginning with small physical games experienced by the body, leaving behind the mechanism of rationalization by proposing a language that is non-verbal, together the participants slowly build a theatrical production to be presented to the public
