“Is someone willing to do something? And what?¨
ACTIONS gives shape to an ideal democratic meeting where refugees, political figures and volunteers can express themselves, with the goal of responding with effective and direct actions that can involve every single individual. ACTIONS cannot be defined as a show. It is more a scenic device in the form of a documentary that involves the spectators in order to respond to the violence and the urgency of our political reality. It brings back the role of the theatre as a forum within the city life. It is an experience from which you will not leave indifferent.
ACTIONS is a cooperation projects involving:
- 4 associations from Milan: ASSPI, Black Panthers, Farsi Prossimo e ASNADA
- 4 refugees: Keita Thei, Jallow Sulay, Noori Abdul Jawad, Ali Dashti Bahiat
- 1 representative of the department of social politics of Milan
- 1 representative of ASGI, l’Avv. Luce Bonzano referent of ASGI Lombardia
- 2 giornalists to keep the debate coherent: Christian Elia, codirettore del Q CODE MAGAZINE e Carla Chelo, ex giornalista de L’Unità
ACTIONS explores the migration crisis, concentrating on ‘here and now’ and dealing with the theme of exclusion and the relationships that exist between art, activism and social changes in a moment in time in which the values of the European democracies are dissolving.
