Support to the free training provided by the Nuovo Teatro Sanità aimed primarily at the youths in the Sanità quarter but also those living in other areas of the city of Naples.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To promote the knowledge of one’s own body, voice and education by listening to the young beneficiaries; stimulating in the youths the creation of a united team, giving up individualism in favour of the good of the group; experimenting with different ways in order to teach youths to use the language of theatre and its elementary building blocks as instruments for communication and relationships in all social contexts.
20 youths risking marginalization in the Sanità quarter of Naples and beyond, between the ages of 15 and 20.
The Nuovo Teatro Sanità was created to involve youths in theatrical culture and art with the objective of building with them social and work alternatives to the dynamics of violence and marginalization of the quarter. For 2021, the project foresees the realization of three workshop modules (in singing and music, acting and elocution) and 3 training internships, each 30 hours long (dramaturgy, body movement and the history of theatre) free of charge, aimed primarily at the youths in the Sanità quarter but also those in other areas of Naples. The workshops aim to promote the training of youths in theatre and their insertion in jobs in the sector, which positively counteracts their social marginalization and improves the quarter while, at the same time, promoting its youths.
In 2019/2020, AMI supported the realization of a performance based on a story by Bernardo Atxaga, an international figure for the Basque language and culture, on the theme of adolescent contrasts, through two residential workshops aimed at four young actors who had been part of the Nuovo Teatro Sanità for years, trained via the Bottega TeatrAle workshops. At the end of January 2020, the production debuted regionally at the Nuovo Teatro Sanità; between June and July 2021, the production will be presented in Milan during the Olinda Festival Da vicino nessuno è normale, involving projects similar to the Teatro Sanità that focus in particular on adolescents. A workshop is associated with the performance for a mixed group made up of four NtS’ actors and a group of adolescents chosen from those that had participated in the theatrical workshops open to vulnerable youths interested in deepening their knowledge of the language of theatre with an eye to future work (among whom are youths who participated in the Olinda non scuola theatrical workshops.
