DRAMA PRODUCTION AS INTERNATIONAL DIALOGUE
With the increasing population migration, we became witnesses of numerous
problems that migrations bring. One of the problems is the diﬃcult integration of
migration groups into receiving countries. One way of faster and better integration
is education in drama. In this paper, the artistic-educational organization #e
Strefa Wolnosłowa will be presented. In their devised theatre they put focus on
blurred borders between art and social intervention, raising the current problems
of Poland, Europe and the world. #e Strefa Wolnosłowa organization, which I
personally was part of in 2016, through international, interdisciplinary activities
and initiatives involving immigrants and refugees living in Poland, promotes
intercultural dialogue, European integrations and human rights. #e aim of this
paper is to describe my personal six-month experience of devised theatre work of
#e Strefa Wolnosłowa – multi-generational group where I met migrants,
immigrants, refugees, international students and Poles at #e Powszechny #eater.
Likewise, the aim is to describe the final performance of the same group titled I
have drawn more than you can see here which became part of #e Atlas project.
#e ultimate goal, based on my own experience, is to present the possibility of such
practice in Croatia, or in Zagreb.
