In 2018 the collaboration between ZID Theater and cultural centre Dar Amsterdam in Larache, Morocco will be continued. Guided by the enthusiastic makers and performers of ZID and in close collaboration with the trainers and makers of Dar Amsterdam we will continue the exchange of work methods and trainings, make a production and organise a conference.
It will be the fourth consecutive year of the project. During our latest visit in 2017 we played the StoryCatcher game and taught it to the participants in Larache. It was quite successful, and we gathered stories that will form the basis of a new script. Following the great production From The World’s Rooftops, created with the performers from ZID and the children and youngsters of Dar Amsterdam and performed in the Cinema in the town centre of Larache in 2016, we will now start work on this new production.
Commissioned by and in collaboration with the City of Amsterdam we will work on short solos by the children and youngsters this year – the DAR Talks – and start work on a group performance on the theme of freedom. We will also start setting up a one-day conference on social-artistic theatre, scheduled for October 2018. ZID Theater is very pleased with the strong collaboration between the City of Amsterdam, Dar Amsterdam and Ecodel.
