Project summaryThe project raises awareness on climate change through theatre, creating a network of international theatres (POLIS Teatro Festival – Italy, Festival of International Alternative Theatre – Montenegro, MOT International Theatre Festival – North Macedonia) to support the production and development in their respective territories of the new participatory and site-specific performance GAIA by ErosAntEros. The performance will be adaptable to the spaces and communities it encounters, through the engagement of associations, young actors and climate activists in workshops that will precede the staging and through meetings with climate change and theatre scholars. GAIA is a performance focused on the environmental catastrophe and the exploitation of the Earth by humans.
