“Dis-Act” is a KA2 Strategic Partnership project in the field of adults co-funded by the Erasmus+ program. This is a project to enhance the inclusive potential of Theatre as an instrument of opening opportunities and dispelling prejudice against people with disability through the production of a quality educational offer for operators and disabled adults themselves in Devised Theatre.
The Devised Theatre is conceived as an original approach to theatrical production entailing a peer process of cooperation between a group of co-creators in the achievement of a final artistic product. In simple words, Devised Theatre is a process in which the whole creative team develops a Show collaboratively.
Through the production of a quality educational offer fostering the capacities of adult operators and institutions in employing Devised Theatre as an instrument of empowerment of adults with disabilities in a process of cooperation with non-disabled peers, the project Dis-Act sets the grounds for the development of soft/transversal skills and competences of creative expression in the disabled, while at the same time breaking stereotypes, internalized and external emotional barriers hampering the full inclusion of adults with disabilities in society
Direct targets: disabled adults aged 35-55 coming from disadvantaged urban and rural communities and Educators/Trainers providing or interested in providing support to their social inclusion.
