2 young theatre directors aged between 18 and 29 are being sought for a training process within the European project Creative Europe TYPUS – Transforming Young People Using Shakespeare.

 

The transformational project TYPUS develops according to objective 2 of the Culture strand sub-programme and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, whose pledge is to leave no one behind. It aims to adopt an inclusive and interactive approach to theatre-making to facilitate marginalized young peoples social inclusion while identifying, exploring, and nurturing their potential creative talents. It uses applied theatre to address the lack of involvement in civic society of many young Europeans, which leads to an increase in deviant behaviours. Involving an international consortium of partners from Greece and Norway with experience in the fields of intercultural theatre, applied theatre, social inclusion, and justice, TYPUS will develop an interactive theatre-making approach centered on Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” to encourage the reintegration of marginalized young people in contemporary society, foster audience engagement both in real life and digitally. It will also train a new professional figure in the areas of drama teaching, directing, social sciences’ and judicial skills.

During the project we will develop and implement a new pilot Shakespeare workshop targeting young people in the community and others in prison or serving community sentences (aged between 14-27) of different mother tongues, ethnic groups, and diverse social backgrounds. With the support of a team of professional figures, the project beneficiaries will be invited to re-appropriate the iconic story of social unrest in this Shakespearean tragedy through the lens of the present legal system in each partner country. According to a transformative approach and starting from territorial best practices, each partner will develop and share Shakespearean tools replicable in the different contexts and with other target groups. Our immersive, interactive rewritings of “Romeo and Juliet” will be presented to very mixed live audiences and disseminated and adapted, deploying the multiple languages and codes of social media.

The selected theatre directors will be involved in the whole project and will take part in a training process that will take place at the IPM Beccaria.

Thanks to their active involvement and collaboration, by the end of the two-year programme, they will have acquired expertise both in directing a theatre company of marginalised young people and in managing difficult situations and mediating conflicts.
