The POWER Project

A Creative Europe Project:

We All Come From Somewhere 

  

In 2018 KCAT’s Equinox Theatre was invited to be one of four participants in the Creative Europe Power Project.  

This project, led by Cooperative Nazareno identified in performing arts, especially theatre, a universal instrument towards barrier-free communication, able to catch different target groups and to reach wide audience. In particular, the aim was to involve socially vulnerable people, such as disabled and migrant disabled people, in the production of a theater performance.  

This extraordinary filmed performance tells the story of human migration. A parent and child forced out of their own home. A parent trying to explain why. Created by Nazareno Cooperative (Italy), KCAT Arts Centre (Ireland), Studio Citadela (Czech Rep) and THEAMA – Inclusive Theatre for the Disabled (Greece) – this one of a kind collaboration was born from a theatrical work by disabled artists /artists with a disability that addressed the current migrant crisis and was written from interviews with refugees in Italy, Greece, Czech Rep. and Ireland. The play received its world premiére in Prague in Jan 2020 – when the Covid crisis hit the project was forced to pivot. 

We All Come From Somewhere received its Irish Premiere at The Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny on 27th November 2021 and is available to view online now. 

The Other Space

 

In 2021, in light of the changing landscape and the evolution of digital spaces as a means to disseminate artistic work, we were very excited to launch our very own digital gallery:
