Grundtvig shadow theatre workshop in Codlea, Brasov

In perioada 10-14.07.2011, la Codlea, judetul Brasov, A.C.T.O.R. a gazduit a 6-a mobilitate din cadrul proiectului Inclusive TOOLBOX –cooperation for social change in Europe – Parteneriate pentru Invatare Grundtvig GRU-10-P-LP-203-B-LU. Participantii din Italia(2), Polonia (3), Portugalia(2), Luxemburg (1), Spania(3) au avut la dispozitie 3 zile de lucru in care au descoperit cum poate fi folosit teatrul de umbre pentru a ajuta diferite categorii de persoane cu risc cu excludere sociala (imigranti, copii cu nevoi speciale, batrani, tineri defavorizati etc)

Dupa sesiunile de cunoastere, participantii au facut exercitii teatrale, apoi au primit informatii tehnice despre cum se poate realiza teatrul de umbre. Abordarea acestei arte nu a avut caracter profesionist, ci tocmai s-a incercat adaptarea  ei pentru a fi folosita in conjuncturi  specifice (spatii neconventionale si diferite nevoi specifice ale beneficiarilor.)

Participantii au fost impartiti in grupe nationale si au primit ca sarcina gasirea unui basm sau a unei legende din folclorul tarii de provenienta. Pornind de la acest text, au realizat un scenariu vizual, gata sa devina spectacol de teatru de umbre, dupa ce vor fi desenat si decupat siluetele personajelor necesare. Asadar, intr-o zi si jumatate de atelier, s-au nascut 4 spectacole.  In incercarea de a arata experientele organizatiei cu diferite categorii de beneficiari, A.C.T.O.R. a impartit grupul in jmatate, prezentand 2 dintre spectacole unui grup de copii foarte saraci din oras, iar celelalte 2 au fost prezentate copiilor din Centrul Social Bradet din Sacele. In ultima zi, a avut loc o evaluare a ambelor experiente, astfel incat toti participantii au putut sa isi apropie folosirea teatrului de umbre ca instrument in munca sociala intelegand impactul pe care el il are asupra unui grup diferit de beneficiari.

The participants from Italy (2), Poland (3), Portugal (2), Luxembourg (1), Spain (3) had 3 working days to discover how can shadow-theatre be used for different people with social exclusion risk. (Immigrants, children with special needs, elder people, youngsters with few opportunities)

After getting to know each other, the participants did some theatric exercises. In the fallowing they have received some technical information about the use of shadow-theatre. This training was not a professional one, it was adapted to be used in different situations. (unconventional rooms and different special needs of the beneficiaries. They were divided in national groups and had a task to find a fairytale or a legend from their national folklore. Starting from this text, they have realized a visual script in order to create a shadow-theatre show, after drawing and cutting the characters. In one day and a half, they build up 4 shows. Trying to illustrate the organization experience in working with different types of beneficiaries, ACTOR members divided the group in 2, presenting 2 of the shows to a very poor group of children from town, and the other 2 have been presented to the children from Bradet social center, from Sacele.
