Mauerspringer – Wall Jumpers Project
A NEW DIALOGUE BETWEEN COMMUNITY AND THEATER
Six street theater companies from five European countries: Cie. du Hasard and Théâtre de l’Unité (France), Hortzmuga Teatroa (Spain), Theaterlabor Bielefeld (Germany), Dah Teatar (Serbia) and Teatro Due Mondi (Italy).
Overcoming the “walls” through art. Promoting dialogue through creative and artistic experience, electing the street as a place for discussion, meeting and artistic expression. Street Theater will become the tool to create a creative and social space for cultural openness and exchange, to break down social and cultural barriers. The street becomes the place where theater intersects with other artistic languages such as photography and video. Our creative players will operate across Europe to reach new audiences. TOPICS Freedom of expression, openness to diversity, tolerance, social inclusion and solidarity, social reflection, development of a democratic and multicultural conscience, peaceful civil coexistence.
