The three European theatrical organizations (MALTE, Boat People Project and the Association Sens-Interdits) share a long research experience in the field of social theater with particular attention to migration issues and their protagonists
The MALTE company is pleased to present the new European project of which it is the leader within a partnership composed of five organizations active in the cultural and creative sector: the NGO Linguapax of Barcelona (Spain), the Association Sens-Interdits of Lyon (France), The Boat People Projekt of Göttingen (Germany) and the Association Djarama of Ndayane (Senegal). The three European theatrical organizations (MALTE, the political theater collective Boat People Project and the Association Sens-Interdits, owner of the homonymous Festival, now in its eleventh edition) share a long research experience in the field of social theater with particular attention to migration issues and their protagonists. Linguapax is a non-governmental organization based in Barcelona and represented in thirty-one countries, dedicated to the preservation of world linguistic diversity, which it has addressed with academic, literary and political approaches and which it now seeks to promote through artistic means. Djarama is a cultural center whose mission is to spread different theatrical forms in the territory, from storytelling to puppetry, with a strong educational vocation. Its task is to ensure an African perspective on the European project.
Europe is currently going through a period of social and economic difficulties, ranging from the pressures derived from the migrant crisis to the social problematics around the administrative, legal and political management. This has intensified the general regression of political conscience and the loss of trust in local, national and European institutions. Such a wave has been ridden by nationalistic political formations, which have been fueling potential conflicts with a distorted narration of these emergencies, to which the partnership intends to react through the spreading of counter-narrations as a creative, politically stimulating response.
