Itinerant Centre in Colombia

at Teatro Taller

Teatro Taller de Colombia has been successfully carrying out its activity for 47 years in the field of theatre research, with programmes of considerable interest in social fields. The group and its project conduct training activities for professional actors and facilitate access to culture for people living in peripherical neighbourhoods and vulnerable areas of the country.

Teatro Taller de Colombia has started the project “Reaching the vulnerable people of Bogotà through theatre. Theatre for all”. This is an initiative aimed at creating cultural dynamics that mainly benefit people in situations of socio-cultural vulnerability and with reduced access to the use of artistic products.

This action consists in encouraging the participation in playful-didactic moments with performances for children and teenagers who, led by a teacher, subsequently develop pedagogical guides prepared by the TTC team.

Argentina

Theater Anthropology Center en Argentina

CATA was born from the desire to be spokesperson for the Barba Varley Foundation in Argentina, sharing a vision of theater aimed at promoting the causes and values of a tradition of the impossible.

CATA joins the Foundation’s objectives: to enhance meetings and exchanges between groups, individuals and territories in a context of interaction, creation of alliances and production collaborations.

CATA is a pedagogical space, of gestation and creation, an artistic space and a space for publications.

CATA is a space in alliance with other spaces, dedicated primarily not to the theatrical performance but to the creation of an environment of possibilities where many times the “nameless” can pass from invisibility to visibility and build networks of solidarity that they materialize in artistic and cultural projects.

Germany (Berlino/Messingwerk)

Itinerant Centre "Institut für Neue Soziale Plastik"

The Institute for a New Social Sculpture is a collaboration of artists and historians who come from the long traditions of group theatre and feminism.

With our artistic and cultural work we aim to contribute to the growth of human rights and to the fight against antisemitism. We make theatre, write texts, develop games and exhibitions – because, in the end, the human being enjoys communicating and understanding things on different levels. And because we have fun.

At the moment we are developing a new space in Messingwerk, at an hour North of Berlin, in order to provide a space for the voices of Jewish artists, and artists of other marginalized groups.
