Alessandro Sciarroni explores such concepts as immunity, physical effort and concentration, and puts such activities as juggling, folk dance or goalball into the theatrical context.
A performance with blind goalball players based on the reflection upon passing of time, sport and disability – it is a type of theatrical re-creation of a match. Aurora constitutes the third part of Sciarroni’s trilogy titled Will you still love me tomorrow?, in which he explores such concepts as immunity, physical effort and concentration, and puts such activities as juggling, folk dance or goalball into the theatrical context.
Day before the performance organizers invite children for toy-making workshop for the near-blind and blind kids. During the eveinug creators of AURORA invite the viewers to participate in the three hours-long workshop on goalball playing techniques.
After the performance, in the foyer of Nowy Teatr at 8 p.m. there will be a 50-minute screening of a film documenting work on AURORA – A CREATIVE PROCESS by Cosimo Terlizzi.
