Theatre can contribute to the establishment of harmonious world by enhancing solidarity among human beings. It is an expressive language that allows us to communicate (both at the individual and collective levels) feelings, to live experiences and reflections about the world. It also represents our identity and our roots.The theatre may be often related to national culture because it can easily express personal events and feelings.
