THE PROJECT IN SUMMARY
Artistic workshop exchanges for people with mental, sensory and motor disorders,to produce and perform a joint theatrical piece.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
Promoting the meeting of diverse experiences to create performances that surpass any charitable implications and where the creative result is artistically valuable per se, by virtue of the intellectual and expressive capacities of the actors
About 25 youths and adults (aged 18 to 35) with mental and physical handicaps from the Ticino Canton and Saint Petersburg in Russia.
The Theatre without borders is made up of three non-profit associations operating for the disabled (mental, sensory and motor): The Giullari di Gulliver Association (Switzerland), the Nothilfe Association (Nieheim, Westphalia, Germany) and the Perspectivij Association, which works with the institutionalized mentally disabled in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
The meeting of these diverse experiences is characterized by the common objective to create performances that surpass any charitable implications; in other words, the creative result is artistically valuable per se, by virtue of the intellectual and expressive capacities of the actors. This approach to theatrical activity has generated interest and resulted in a fertile work environment, making possible a rich cultural exchange.
In 2012, the Theater without Borders met in Nieheim, Westphalia, Germany. During three intense weeks of work they put on a piece entitled “Ombre Ondeggianti” (literally “Rippling Waves”), which they performed to both critical acclaim and public success in Germany (2012), Russia (2013) and Ticino (2014). AMI and AMG supported the participation of the Giullari di Gulliver group in Germany and Russia, and in 2014 will support the joint theatrical activities of the Perspectivij Russian group in Ticino.
