Sofia will host three performances by three countries to mark world disability day on December 3 with a show at the Nikolai Binev youth theatre (8 Dondukov Blv) at 3.30pm.
The unusual combination of pantomime, forum theatre and puppet theatre is presented by theatre groups from the Bulgarian Tishina Association, PATRIR (Romania) and Ucaneller Culture and Art House Association (Turkey).
Artists with impaired hearing from the Tishina Association will deliver their message through pantomime, synchronised singing and dance facilitated by sign language interpretation.
Romanian actors from PATRIR will convey the story of a young visually impaired boy.
Also, Ucaneller Culture and Art House Association, Turkey, will convey their message of strength through solidarity.
The event is in the framework of AGORA Platform's project Art Changes Lives that aims to promote young people’s active citizenship, developing solidarity and tolerance among them. The project has been funded with support from the Youth in Action programme of the European Commission.
More information about the project can be found on the AGORA Platform's (Bulgarian) website
