Project Duration: 02.04.2018 - 01.10.2021
Project ERDF Financing: 139 932.09
Project call: 2nd call
The Latvian Society of the Blind, in cooperation with the Lithuanian Telsiai District Administration and the Drama Theater of Žemaitė has made a 50-minute long film where blind and deaf people participate and reflect their inner world and talents.
During the project, an opportunity was created for blind and deaf people to express themselves artistically. Show your inner essence, experiences and life stories. On one stage, several people were brought together who were brave enough to show their inner world to public. The aim of the project was to promote cooperation between blind and deaf people who are interested in theatrical art in the Lithuanian-Latvian border regions and to create mutual cooperation and inclusion of actors in the surrounding society.
As a result of this project- a professional team has made a film that shows this performance. As an added value, there are interviews with project participants. Each of the spectators will be able to get to know each of the project participants more personally and will be able to know more of the participant’s life story.
This film can be watched on the Latvian Society of the Blind website, as well as on the Latvian Society of the Blind social media platform – Facebook and in Youtube (with ENG, LT and LAT subtitles):
During the project, participants were provided with various master classes that would help them feel safer, more open and understand each other more on stage. Both professional actors and amateur actors were invited to the project to provide an opportunity for each of the participants to learn something new. Castings were conducted to select the most suitable project participants. In order to ensure a professional approach to the realization of the script, the director of the show, choreographer, costume designer, psychologist, sign language interpreter and other specialists worked with the participants in the project.
