Notre travail

Pourquoi le Théâtre ?

J'ai toujours ressenti un besoin urgent de créer du théâtre et de le montrer aux gens. À plusieurs reprises, cela s'est produit dans le garage de mes parents, dans la cuisine de mon petit appartement ou dans le salon de la maison de mes grands-parents. Dans ces endroits, j'étais plus ou moins protégé. Mais faire du théâtre dans un système qui ne cesse de délimiter mon corps, de le rendre docile et docile, c'est très douloureux. Alors, pourquoi continuer ? 

Parce que je sais que si je perds du pouvoir et si je perds des privilèges, j'en aurai encore. Donc, je peux et je dois continuer. Je choisis de faire du théâtre et pouvoir choisir est extrêmement politique, donc c'est personnel. Être à l'intérieur d'un théâtre, c'est être dans un espace où le public et les interprètes partagent un risque. hautement interactif. Il s'invente librement et trouve à chaque fois son propre chemin. Il oscille entre les mots, les images, l'espace, la fiction et la réalité. Avec le théâtre, j'ouvre des espaces pour de nouvelles réalités, je les retiens et j'espère que quelqu'un se joindra à moi et les poussera encore plus loin. Je fais du théâtre pour que les gens passent un bon moment, pour émouvoir les gens. Je fais du théâtre pour ceux qui s'en éloignent et pour ceux qui l'étudient. Je continue donc on résiste.

Amulette

A contemporary choral poem about our amulets, lives, wishes, and dreams. Five actresses and singers, accompanied by a musician, read, say and sing, alone or in a moving popular choir, texts about amulets. These texts have been collected in theater and writing workshops with migrant populations in Geneva. The play is a choral text that tells these multiple stories. Through these singular stories, the mysterious weft of the amulets tells a universal story.

"Amulet" is a theater project resulting from a collaboration between the Albanian Popular University (UPA) and the Théâtre Spirale. It aims to voice the testimonies of migrant audiences of all origins.

The project started in 2021, and as the project grew, other associations such as Camarada, the Université Ouvrière de Genève, the Service Action Citoyenne de la commune d'Onex and F-Information. In February 2022, Amulette played in the many associations it partnered with, bringing the participants the result of their work. In June 2022, the play was presented for three weeks at the Theatre de la Parfumerie in Geneva. In addition to the theatrical play, a podcast and an exhibition with drawings made by the participants and photographs taken by Riccardo Willig were presented.

Justice in Action - Beyond Impunity 

untitled-2818.jpg

“Justice in Action” was a participatory theatre project in Liberia designed and implemented by Nathaly Leduc while working at the NGO Civitas Maxima. The project is subject to Nathaly's ethnographic dissertation on the limits and possibilities of theater projects in post-conflict areas. 

It was undertaken in partnership with Flomo Theatre Inc., which commenced in 2017 and continued in 2018 with the design of a theatre roadshow, public readings, and the staging of mock trials performed by Flomo Theatre actors and involving local students in Monrovia.

 

Then in 2019, Flomo Theatre actors, together with Civitas Maxima staff and other local partners, embarked on a roadshow across rural Liberia to share the news of the trial of Mohammed Jabbateh, aka ‘Jungle’ Jabbah – former commander of the United Liberation Movement of Liberia for Democracy (ULIMO) rebel faction who was convicted in the US for immigration fraud relating to his non-disclosure to US authorities of his involvement in the First Liberian Civil War.

In total, 15 towns in six different counties were visited by the roadshow. All of these towns witnessed extreme violence perpetrated by all armed groups across all factions – who raided and devastated these communities during the conflicts.
