Start date: Jun 17, 2014, End date: Dec 16, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

TheatrAbility was a 6 days non-formal educational training course focusing on social theatrical techniques. The programme was designed as learning process based on participants experiences and exchanges. The project took place in Verbania ( Piedmont, North-West Italy) from the 16th to the 21th of September 2014. 20 social and youth worker (2 for each partner association) coming from 10 different European countries: Italy, Portugal, Poland, Lithuania, Turkey, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Bulgaria, Greece, Spain and Belarus belonging to cultural and youth associations or International Non-Governmental Organisations, participated in the projet. The project programme aimed to create a communication between theatrical and educative/social work in disability enviroment in the reciprocal enrichment perspective, using different methodologies like theatreterapy and social theatre. Throughout different structured activities (role exchanges, body expression, sensorial and outdoor experiences) participants experienced theatre without basic abilities: how to play without sight? How to communicate without speaking? How to move without legs? In TheatrAbility disabilities change into new abilities. Throughout the experiences, the participants reflected about the disability’s physical and social limits and learn new professional and relational skills.
