AKVÁRIUM, An archaic tale today
Summary of project results
The scope of the project was the theatrical education of the young age group via theatrical performances, and to present the culture and integration problems of minority groups. In the project this was achieved by the aspects of the involved Roma actors and those living with disabilities. The topic of the play was a reversed situation when Roma people and those living with disabilities exclude a person who did not fit in. The play was about this person’s quest. All these were associated with fine arts. The inspiration to the project can be originated from the Art Brut, outsider art as an artistic trend. The project inspired by a fine art branch was supported by a seminar of the Faculty of Music and Visual Arts at the University of Pécs and also a seminar of the Department of Communication which gave a certain feed-back inspiration to the target group within the university. The point of theatrical education method was the active involvement of the audience in the artistic process, the theatrical play. Each member of the professional network played an important role in the promotion of cultural diversity, which was a further remarkable feature of the project, however, the 43 activities implemented and the play presented to 310 youngsters by the establishing of the professional network of 42 people involved serve as an additional value in the deep understanding of ethnic and cultural minorities.
