What is the creative component?

This is any creative activity that involves people acting together:
● singing together in the singing circle technique● joint drawing and performing of various art techniques● playback theater performance

Why is the creative component so important?

The atmosphere of joint creativity, when people relax and start singing or participating in an improvised performance, helps to establish a positive atmosphere in the group, people have common positive memories. It also helps to establish horizontal connections between people, as the experience of joint creativity unites them.

Playback performances

Are an important, powerful connecting tool for building a trusting atmosphere and creating horizontal connections.

Playback theater

Is a kind of theater where people from the audience tell their personal stories, and the actors play these stories on stage right here and now, improvising and showing the deeper essence of the events that the person recalls in the story.

Results of playback theater performances● Developing empathy.● Creating a safe space.● Engaging in dialogue through story sharing.● Enlarging personal vision of the story through reflection on the stage.● Creating a sense of presence and active listening.

The playback performance in Rome became possible thanks to a professional playback group from Berlin, consisting of Ukrainian refugees who left Ukraine in 2022. Unfortunately, there is no Ukrainian playback theater in Italy, and the language factor is crucial, as it is important that playback actors not only know the language of the audience, but also share a common context with them.
