Roma children led by actors from New York to create theatre plays

It is very vividly in our three community centers – in Moldava nad Bodvou, Šaca a Stará Ľubovňa – these days. Actors from American Dramatic Adventure Theatre from New York came to Slovakia for one week stay to show to us, but especially to Roma children, the power of art and its endless possibilities.

Under the guidance of experienced American actors and arte-therapist will children realize their talents in preparing short drama plays, which will portray their lives, problems and dreams. American actors will only guide and assist this process – the burden of work to invent, create, direct, tune, create costumes, rehearse and act will lie on our children. True faith in their talent and opportunities is crucial for achieving the objectives of the event – increased self-esteem of young people, strengthening faith in their own ability and possibility to prove something.

Actors from the Dramatic Adventure Theater have been also supporting the fulfillment of the objectives of the Art4ROM project supported by the European Commission. This experience and practices learnt during the one-week workshop will be implemented in workshops and utilized in the development of didactic materials within the Art4ROM project.

Come and check the results of their efforts in any given community centers on July 26 at 1 PM.
