Enabled Theatre

Theatre and Disabilities

The pepersons with disabilities can both produce and enjoy theatre in many cases. Arts in general and theatre in particular can be very beneficiary for the persons with disabilities. In the Western Balkans, there is very little theatrical activity that is specialized for and/or about persons with disabilities. Enabled Theatre is a project that cultivates a theatre for and about the persons with disabilities. It also enables mobility of persons with disabilities and those looking after them. It will bring together persons with disabilities, the professionals in the field field of working with persons with disabilities (psychologists, therapists, pedagogues and others) and  professional artists (actors, musicians, visual artists, writers, directors). It will take place in Budva, Montenegro; Novi Sad, Serbia and Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The participants will comprise persons with disabilities (and persons accompanying them) and professional artists. They will have a series of the workshops together. During the workshops, they will create a set of scenes produced by the persons with disabilities and also a stage material for the professional artistic theatre piece. One presentation for the selected audience will be a collection of the scenes produced and performed by persons with disabilities or in the collaboration with professional artists. The second piece will be created and performed by professional artists alone and its subject will be the life of persons with disabilities and their loved ones. The professional piece will be for the general audience. The participants with disabilities and persons looking after them as well as the experts from the field and professional artists will be coming to the coastal city of Budva.

The idea is to pave the way for a future establishment of the Balkan Arts Center for the People with Disabilities in Budva. There is no such a centre in the Western Balkans. Also, the people with the special needs of all ages are not very mobile because their travel often requires special conditions and the accompaniment. This will be opportunity for them to travel to the seaside and meet the people from other cities and countries while getting engaged in an interesting and inspiring creative activities and guided by professionals.

Enabled Theatre will be beneficial both for the field of working  with persons disabilities and also for professional arts. The professional arts rarely focus on persons with disabilities as a theme or  characters of plays and films. While there is quite some talk about the inclusiveness in the arts of the Western Balkans, there is very little progress in the field. Enabled Theater will be pioneering greater inclusiveness in the WE arts and will also create the foundation for the first Balkan Arts Centre for Persons with Disabilities.

About the Project

Enabled Theatre/The World of Possibilities

How much can you love? Is love limitless?

Are you an empathic person? Is empathy infinite?

What do you do if you can’t avoid a challenging reality?

What are the borders of patience?

Does solidarity make any sense?

What is grace?

These questions are a part of everyone’s personal world. It is our most intimate thinking; a conversation that we have with ourselves. “The World of Possibilities” is a theatrical show about the persons with disabilities, their families and their therapists. It is the reality that shows an amazing capacity of people to love and make sacrifices. It is also a world of many challenges and tragic outcomes, sometimes. It is the world in which the meaning of life is incarnated in the strongest possible way.

“The World of Possibilities” follows a number of characters in extraordinary circumstances caused by cerebral palsy and autism. The stories that unfold in front of us are amazing. They make us reflect on life from a new and surprising discourse and they move us fundamentally.

“The World of Possibilities” is an extraordinary show also in the theatrical sense with its innovative dramaturgy. It is also visually beautiful and has an impressive original music.
