Walking in light

A multidisciplinary performance (video-dance, physical theater, music)

Written, directed and produced by Elena Zervopoulou

A poetic video-dance performance taking us to a journey of resilience of young immigrants in search of a better future in Europe. Inspired by Participatory Video (PV) workshops with young immigrants hosted in shelters in South Italy (Nova Siri and Salandra).

A multidisciplinary socially engaged, artistic project promoting intercultural dialogue, empowering vulnerable communities of immigrants through participatory approach, conceived to encourage Audience Engagement through innovative practices to make social change.

A young refugee’s journey in Europe in search of his father and of a better future, told through the collaboration of artists, filmmaker, actors, dancers, musicians, as a result of participatory work with groups of young refugees/immigrants in Greece, Italy and Sweden. The multilayered performance will travel in Athens, Greece, in Matera (European Capital of Culture in 2019), Italy and in Malmo, Sweden. It will be based on real facts, stories and characters gathered in creative, participatory art therapy workshops with young refugee/immigrant participants, taking place in each one of these cities, representing therefore the real stages of a refugee’s journey. The project will stay alive after the tour of the performance, through innovative tools and strategies on an interactive transmedia platform, engaging even larger audiences across Europe.

We have produced the video-dance (30’) and performance (45’), after the Participatory Video workshops have taken place in remote villages of Basilicata, South Italy, over a 4 months period. The premiere is due in summer 2019 in Matera, European Capital of Culture 2109.
