On Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th of June PK Theater hosted, in a plentiful atmosphere, the performance of the Theatrical Group on the Social Spot of Neos Kosmos.
The group was created in November 2017 by Chalil Alizada, who was the director and had the custody and coordination of the group that constitutes from 15 teenagers. The meetings of the group were carried out the past 8 months with relaxation exercises and elocution, theatrical games and improvisations. Most of the teenagers didn’t have any previous experience in acting, and via this group they were given a chance to express themselves and blossom out their talent.
The performance was the result of personal and team work from all the participants that came to every single meeting the past 8 months. After all the exercises, the readings of Persian and Greek poems, art of the 20th Century, they created all together a performance that was consisted of small stories, every each one with a special meaning and symbolism. The audience watched the teenagers and wished that this was just the start of their professional life in their new beginning in Greece.
The seminar of theatrical group is part of the project «METAVASIS Project – Participation, Empowerment and Social Inclusion of Refugees / Migrants in Greece» concerning the support and integration of refugees and immigrants in Greek society. The Project is run by Caritas Hellas and is funded by the German Foreign Ministry and Caritas Germany.
