1st Creative International Digital Encounter
"CHILDREN & YOUTH PERFORMING ON AIR"
"Radio turned into Theatre Stage and we went from having Viewers to having Listeners!"
Social distancing and the inability to stage performances, due to Covid-19 pandemic, instead of holding us back, they made us more resourceful. We just shifted attention from what we “couldn’t do”, to what we “could do”. Theatre on Air, once celebrated for its power to excite and inspire, became our “playground” and radio waves took youth’s dramatic expression and travelled it to new wave-lengths from Greece and Cyprus, as far as Australia!
Joining forces with Motivation in Art (Pafos), and the Creative Drama & Arts Centre of Greek Community of Melbourne, the Theatrical Cultural Artistic Center ''Poupoulo'' (Thessaloniki), organized the 1st International Digital Exchange, "CHILDREN & YOUTH PERFORMING ON AIR".
Youth took over the microphone and performed on Air excerpts from classic plays and myths to fairytales. Broadcasted by national radio-stations, in all partner countries, the performances reached different corners of the world and exerted strong emotional responses from families, relatives and friends. Radio turned into Theatre Stage and we went from having Viewers to having Listeners!
Theatre on Air provides ground for experimentation, creative exchange and active learning. Though it did not compensate for the all-round transformative, physical experience of theatre, it permits other liberties, and, makes its own demands.
"CHILDREN & YOUTH PERFORMING ON AIR" engaged youth creatively and kept it connected, enabled cultural exchange and familiarized with great works of literature. Equally important, it was Covid-19 safe and made good and conscious use of digital media.
Our intention is to make "CHILDREN & YOUTH PERFORMING ON AIR" grow and expand. For this reason, we are already working on the 2nd Creative International Digital Encounter to be released on the Fall Semester of 2020. We will use Theatre on Air to build bridges among countries, cultures and youth. Information regarding the upcoming “gathering” and its terms and conditions of participation will follow shorty. Stay tuned!!!
