This project, which was founded as a student volunteer initiative many years ago, gave for our team and the world a lot of truly creative personalities! Moreover, there is an opinion that thanks to specific circumstances of the team of “Theater of Life” was created our organization…
SOCIO-INTERACTIVE “THEATER OF LIFE”
It is a favorite thing that created by forces of a vast number of people; it is a bunch of their talent, their energy, and responsibility to our audience. Although this a volunteer project, but with pretensions to the main occupation in the future. We note this with confidence because we have success stories of our graduates that are certain combined their lives with theatrical activities. Today the theater is a powerful tool to influence changes in a society because in spite of theatrical activities we have examples of project activities: initiation of two regional festivals of interactive theaters “Objective to reality”, holding of the social photo exhibition in the national campaign “No Hate Speech Movement” and others.
WHY SUCH TITLE – “THEATER OF LIFE”?
Title – symbolic and logical at the same time, because formed the life – usually the most exquisite director.
WHERE DID THE IDEA OF INTERACTIVE THEATER?
Volodymyr Shynkaruk, Honored Artist of Ukraine, professor, poet, our great friend, and teacher, yet in 2005 told us about interactive format theater that existed in the children’s center “Artek”. He told so enthusiastically that we, the students united and formed our creative space, we decided to adapt this idea and tried to create something qualitatively different, but optional. In 2007 we started to work with our texts, ideas, actors actively. Volodymyr Shynkaruk powerfully helped to us with advice, an idea, a direction; he teach us to work with texts, he wrote to us, and he was the author of the first performance “Don’t be afraid of life”. Thanks to him, the Theater get back on their feet. His support was tangible for many years of the Theatre activity, tangible now when he was gone, but in a different way…
WHAT IS THE MAIN IDEA OF THE THEATER?
We are not trying to teach, not trying to say that is good and that is badly. The viewer has independently concluded to judge… leave the hall and take their own decision. We aim to our performances were intelligent, filled with symbolism, they are absolutely individual because each viewer feels their own way.
The message of socio-interactive “Theatre of life” – it’s each of us has an opportunity to create and perform the greatest miracle – his life and leave in their life a space for art.
