TEATRO GATO ESCALDADO, Portugal (Lisbon)
Small cultural operators suffered the most in the past two years, operationally, financially and in their ability to produce creative works, particularly those who were already facing difficulties, like the disabled groups of performers.
(1) to boost resilience and recovery from the pandemic caused cultural depression
(2) to provide Capacity Building prospects for its partners through cooperation, exchange of good practices and experiences.
The creative activities will draw thematically from the Greek tragedy ‘Trojan Women’ by Euripides, the first ever-recorded literary work that deals with the catastrophic repercussions of war and forced displacement of people, the calamities that befall the victims, mainly women and children,and their suffering in a perilous world. The final production of a stage/digital play will be an amalgamation of the chronic and lingering menace of war and its repercussions.
The project plans to produce three live-stage performances (in Lisbon, Bielsko-Biała and Athens), one digital performance, and a Guide for Inclusion & Accessibility in theatres/performing arts including video and text instructions.
The activities planned include:
– 1 Artistic Directors’ Residency to streamline creative activities and exchange good practices,
– 3 On-line workshops on Inclusive Theater Training,
– 1 On-line Seminar for Accessibility Services for Disabled Audiences and Performers to invite broad participation from the cultural industry,
– Digital and live rehearsals jointly among partners with performers drawn from different social backgrounds, diverse gender identification and disabled performers.
