About the project:

This project consists in two mobilities. The first mobility-A1 will take part in Slovakia, where 40 participants can stimulate their creativity, thought process and experience learning through theatrical instruments while acquiring the basics skills of theater and assessing where they’ll fit best for the following stages of the project. (The second mobility-A2 will take place in Romania, at the Black sea between 28.08-06.09.2020 where 40 participants, vast majority from the first part of the mobility, can create an entire play.)

The objectives of this Youth exchange are to give an opportunity for the participants to work in intercultural ensemble, to develop competences in oral language and expressive mechanisms, to develop understanding in psychological and moral analysis of a character and learn the elements of stagecraft and production and to create a theatrical play from 0, involving all participants, to be played in front of a live audience and recorded as an output for DEOR.

The desired short-term outcome is to successfully stimulate creativity, self-knowledge, self-expression and inclusion for all participants, and experience the benefits of learning through theatrical instruments while acquiring the basics skills of theatre and benefit from the experience of creating an entire play and playing it in front of people.
