Theatre Movement – Europe Day

May 9 - 08:00 - 13:00 EEST

Europe Day, which takes place every year on May 9, celebrates peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historic declaration in which the then French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman set out the idea of a new form of political collaboration in Europe, which would make war between European nations unthinkable.

In Reggio Emilia, Europe Day is celebrated with the organization of an event open to young people from the area to learn about Europe, experience its opportunities, get involved and discuss European issues.

The theater consortium “Consorzio Balsamico” created a theatrical atelier happening to involve the participants. The founding characteristic of the atelier is exploration: by immersing themselves in an environment/landscape set up by material stimuli and technologies, the group of participants has free access to a creative experience. This allows the discovery of relationships, plots, and interactions that favor the development of symbolic thinking and lateral thinking.

There are 4 topics covered, through different languages:

Environmental sustainability and climate change
Stop motion technique, creation of a material landscape with recycled materials.

Conflicts, peace and war
Using sound instruments, bring the voice to a message.

Material and verbal language, creating messages of peace.

Mobility and freedom of movement
Graphic and verbal language. How do our boundaries intertwine with those of others?

Consorzio Balsamico is a theater company founded in 2020 that investigates, through the tool of the atelier, creativity in various contexts, both artistic and non-artistic, using the exploration of matter and materials as a research ground for creative processes.
