What is M.A.P.?
M.A.P. Moving Action People is a project promoted by Nuovo Teatro Sanità, Teatro di Sardegna, Liminal and Circolando, within the program Erasmus+ KA210 Small-scale partnerships in vocational education and training, that aims to involve and represent groups normally marginalized and excluded from the cultural offer in a european artistic experience.
4 workshops from october 2022 to march 2023
One of M.A.P.’s actions is the activation of participatory dramaturgy workshops, that will take place simultaneously for a period of 6 months in the 4 cities in which the partners are based. The workshops will involve young operators and cultural professionals to acquire hybridize social and artistic skills in order to generate inclusive community dramaturgies for groups that are marginalized and traditionally excluded by the mainstream cultural offer and dominant narratives. The participants in the workshops will be selected thanks to the place-based declination of the tools developed during the first training of the project.

During the last six months, Circolando has carried out its mission by engaging young and elderly people from the neighborhood of Lomba, in the parish of Bonfim (Porto), in a workshop with the aim of creating a performance-installation that would combine sound, photography, video and archive.

The workshop carried out by Sardegna Teatro Teatro involved Valentina Medda in developing a performance called “Cities by Night”, where women are invited to explore alone the streets of their own city when the sun sets, avoiding crossing the areas where they feel uncomfortable.
THEATER WORKSHOP: “WHAT DO YOU DO?” – PART II –
During the II part of Liminal’s workshop participants with and without disabilities found themselves discussing more and more on what is theatrical writing and worked together on creating a theater play to be later presented with interpretation in the Greek Sign Language.
THEATER WORKSHOP: “THE ART OF DISEQUILIBRIUM”
The workshop at the Nuovo Teatro Sanità focuses on the concept of disequilibrium, the constant status of the artist from which the creative act springs, in an attempt to overcome it. The study led the people involved to overcome their limits and strengthen their sense of community.
