Dear Friends!

You will be excited to hear a success story of the project you supported.

For the second time the peace-making art residence Rebels for Peace gathered 45 teenagers from Russia, Germany, Syria and Afghanistan in city of Zeitz, Germany. The program of the residence began on 7 July by showing DoMiNo performances in Leipzig and Zeitz. DoMiNo is an interdisciplinary performance based on real stories of participants of the first art residence in 2018. Someone was forced to flee with his family from his home in Syria, and someone was in the shelter as a result of the actions of the guardianship authorities.

330 spectators were lucky to see the performance. One of the spectators of the performance in Leipzig shared his impressions:

"I did not expect such a dramatic line, I thought that there would be just circus performances. The theme of the experience of war or even violence is felt throughout the performance. You can feel what courage the guys show when they perform on stage."

The residence lasted from 6 to 29 of July. The program included workshops in different disciplines: circus, media, sound design, documentary theater and drums. Workshops were open for all Zeitz citizens. The result of these workshops became city choir and a flock of birds puppets. 

Later, flying art objects went to the promenade around the city during the art festival, which was arranged by the residence team. The festival brought together about 300 participants and spectators. Many surprises, rhythms and creative bustle appeared at the streets of the city. 

Every day of the residence served as a confirmation that there are many reasons to be together in life.

Thank you for your support and for participation and contribution in the world peace community building!

Please see a video of thanks from all children who took part in the residence!

Dear friends, supporters and followers!

Rebels for Peace art-residence has started in Germany last week! We've shown DoMiNo performance in Leipzig and Zeitz. And even get up an improvized circus performance near Berlin Schönefeld Airport while waiting for all the participants to meet each other. 

We're looking forward to all site-specific workshops and art-interventions to begin in Zeitz. This year our creative research will focus on Communication. How do we communicate with others? How do we satisfy our need for peer-to-peer interactions? And if war is a type of communication - what might we suggest instead of fighting and hostility?

In two weeks we'll welcome Zeitz citizens at Rebels for Peace festival to introduce an unconventional view on the town. 

We're eager to share our excitement with these short videos.

Stay in touch!

Dear Friend,

Let’s go to Upsala-Circus!

You’ve supported our project -- the international peace-making residence for teenagers in Zeitz a few months ago.

We would like to share with you cool news about the project!

Upsala-Circus showed the performance DoMiNo in St.Petersburg, which is based on real stories of teenagers from Germany, Syria, Afghanistan and Russia, told by the means of new circus,documentary theater, media and sound installations. 

10 German participants of the last residence arrived to St. Petersburg for 1 week to continue work on the play. It was great to show DoMiNo in Russia, because half of the participants from St. Petersburg and for us were very important to present our performance for Russian audience.  We will see other participants of the residence in Zeitz very soon to finalize work and show the performance in Germany.

The play DoMiNo will be shown on the 7th and 8th of July in Leipzig and on 9th of July in Zeitz. In case you will be in Germany in that dates we would be happy to see you on our performance!

We will come to Zeitz very soon in July to make the second residence.

The second residence will be devoted to building a dialogue between teenagers from Germany, Syria, Afghanistan and Russia and local residents. By the end of three weeks of joint work the festival "Rebels for peace - a Parade of Carriages" will take place, where the Upsala-Circus along with the townspeople will look at the city in a new way. The residence will host workshops from an international team of artists from Russia, Germany and France. 

At the moment, we continue looking for funding for the project from corporate donors and European foundations and continue developing the program of the residence.

Thank you so much for your support! We will be happy to meet in Zeitz in July.

In case you would like to take part in the residence as a volunteer, please e-mail me.

 

Best wishes,

Anna Sagalchik

Since the project will take place only in July 2019, we have not had any financial costs yet. At the moment, we continue looking for funding for the project from corporate donors and European funds and continue developing the prorgram of the residence.
In April 2019, based on last year's art-residence for at-risk teenagers in Zeitz, we plan to stage the DOMINO play, which will be shown in Germany as part of the art residence of 2019.
The creative collaboration and making arts together is very effective in building bridges between individuals and communities. The experience of migration, losing family, difficulties of being a stranger are universal for all countries.

Our main activities within the international peace-making residence for teenagers in Zeitz in 2019 will include:

  • Investigate the programs implemented in Germany relevant to these topics: social circus and theatre, adaptation of refugees and migrants, working with teenagers at risk;
  • Make a network of allies working in the same field and interested in collaboration in Germany, Russia and beyond;
  • Change the attitude towards teenagers from refugee families and help them to show their uniqueness and talents, establish better relations with their peers;
  • Create a platform where teenagers in different life situations can exchange their ideas, express themselves and their opinion;
  • Summarize the experience to be able to make a regular project that will grow into an annual creative peace-making residence for children and teenagers from all over the world on the territory of Zeitz. 

The main difference of our approach is the combination of creativity and humanistic values. We bring together professionals from different countries, each of them uses the unique experience of working with children and teenagers (including refugees and migrants) in their home country. Thus, we make the program more universal, going beyond the problems of only one country. The main tool of our work is the circus. Circus allows everyone show their talent and to interact with others as peers. By synthesizing the circus with other instruments we get a creative product or work-in-progress and show it in the region for citizens. The residence will change the attitude towards teenagers from refugee families and help them to show their uniqueness and talents, establish relations with their peers. In the residence children get important experience in communication, interaction and collaboration under the guidance of psychologists and teachers.

 

Thank you so much for your support! We will be happy to meet in Zietz in July.

In case you would like to take part in the residence as a volonteer, please e-mail us.

Regards, Olesya Radilova
