Playing Identities - Performing Heritage

margheritalogo 8d7bd

The idea behind Playing Identities, Performing Heritage lies in the attempt to experiment processes of artistic creation based on the creolisation of diverse European national theatrical traditions, as well as on the relationship between the performers themselves, on one side, and the performers and the public, on the other.

Our privileged tool for realising such an idea is PanSpeech, a social media inspired by the crowdsourcing philosophy. We will invite citizens as audience not only to give their opinions on the state of their belonging to their community, but also to perform their issues and difficulties through the direction of the involved artists. Citizens as the owners of heritage become performers of heritage and audience in artistic endeavour.

The project also offers the chance to make a collective artistic and academic enquiry on the state of the art of issues like the European identity, belonging and cultural heritage (transmission, fruition, valorisation, reproduction).

The Creole Performance Cycle shall then absorb this complex process by displaying the unpredictable results such a creole approach and methodology bring about.

Main goals:

1) To test experimental practices of artistic creation among different theatrical traditions in order to produce original performances that we call Creole Performance Cycle;

2) To adopt crowdsourcing as an innovative strategy for engaging and diversifying European audiences in order to add value to the results of the theatrical crafting through users’ creative expressions;

3) To utilise crowdsourcing as a means supporting further the creative process and the primary functions of the theatrical production;

4) To create new knowledge on the role of performing arts in creating and shaping identities across Europe, setting the grounds for new forms of identity, belonging and citizenship in Europe through performing heritage;

5) To strengthen the social function of theatre in contemporary times.
