Through Theater to Common Roots
Start date: 01 Aug 2012,

Through Theatre to Common Roots is an international cultural exchange project taking place in Ureki, East of Georgia, where youth of Georgia, Poland, Armenia and Latvia hosted by Student-Youth Council organization meet to discuss cultural differences, regional traditions and use this knowledge for tourism development in their home countries. Through theater and music, which express traditions and roots of particular region, but also contemporary trends the project aims to raise awareness of young people that "cultural differences" and "intercultural dialogue" are not abstract concepts but events in which they participate and benefit from and may use them to develop their local community. Using their own talents, skills and creativity together they need to find a common point between Europe and the Caucasus. Traditions of the important moments of the family life (birth, wedding, funeral etc.) exist in every culture; though the celebrations differ themselves, the need to celebrate these important moments and to share this experience with the rest of the community is something that unites showing common routs of different cultures or nations.During 10 days 24 young people from 4 countries will work in 2 international teams: music and theatre. They will jointly prepare the scenario for the theater play in the subject of local traditions of family life.The multilingualism of the play is an essential point: actors will use their native language, for their better self-expression and breaking intercultural stereotypes. The play will be shown to Georgian local community of Ureki and Ozurgeti. Additionally participants will show the recorded performance back in their home countries to their local community.Work on promotion of local customs and traditions will motivate youth for touristic promotion of their regions. Showing characteristics of the local environment done by youth will attract tourism and develop local community in wider scope.
