HOMO SUM. Human rights between representation and reality
workshop led by Davide Sacco and Agata Tomšič / ErosAntEros

For years now, the theatre of ErosAntEros has been carrying on a poetics that questions the present, combining the investigation of politically committed content with a formal research that oscillates between fiction and reality, between past and present, to project itself towards tomorrow. The protection of fundamental rights within contemporary democracies is at the centre of the production Disconcert for rights. The workshop wants to deepen this theme further, to share with the participants some of the company’s practices: the Atlas composition; the musical reading of the text; the editing of different scenic languages.

The application is submitted via email – putting in the object Name and Surname / Laboratory: HOMO SUM; specifying in the text of the email your badge number, phone contact, 10 lines of presentation, and attaching to the email your CV.

The email must be received at no later than October 15th 2021.

Participants will be asked to read the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and to bring 1 text (max. half page) + 2 images or videos of their choice, which for them are exemplary of the protection/non-protection of human rights in contemporary democracies.
