Premiere of Buden Teatar’s new performance “A Letter to Anyone” will take place on Saturday, 24 December 2016 at 12.30 PM at Kino Kultura.
The performance is based on the stories of the Dutch author Toon Tellegen, and contains video materials from the creative workshop “Video Letters” that Buden Teatar conducted simultaneously with the refugee children who are situated at T.C.Tabanovce, and the children from the primary school “Koco Racin”.
This project was a step towards surpassing the isolation in which the refugee children live by finding a creative way to connect them with the Macedonian children and to help them in developing their friendships despite the impossibility for direct meetings. The project also fought the negative stereotypes about refugees, which unfortunately are evident in Macedonian children due to media misrepresentation of the refugees.
This Saturday, after two months of intense exchange of video messages and gifts the two groups of children will finally have the opportunity to meet in person, and together they will watch our performance “A letter to anyone.”
The project “Video letters” by Buden Teatar was financially supported by Civica Mobilitas, and was realized in partnership with SOS Children’s village, the Primary School “Koco Racin” from Skopje, and Kino Kultura, Skopje. Also, the project was morally supported by MTSP, CUK Kumanovo, and UNCHR.
