GNO Alternative Stage presents the premiere of ImPArt international production, which will take place on September 8th.

More than 20 artists from 4 countries (Greece, Italy, Germany, Armenia) get inspired by the objectives of the innovative European project ImPArt. 

ImPArt project (Immediate Performing Arts) is about the development of interdisciplinary performances (dance, dance theatre, music theatre, performance) immediately accessible by any audience, people with sensory disabilities included, with an emphasis on the inclusion of professional artists with disabilities. It is a partnership of 4 artistic organizations: Synergy of Music Theatre (Greece), SOMMERTHEATER Pusteblume (Germany), ORIENTE OCCIDENTE Festival (Italy) και NCA SMALL THEATRE (Armenia).

The presentation consists of 2 independent performances: Gravity and Other Attractions, The Little Prince and an installation-performance titled Re:construction, in all of which the limitations of accessibility transform into a field of inspiration, experimentation and innovative creation. The common accessibility media (captioning, sign language interpretation, audio description) become creative tools for on-stage expression and form the cutting-edge aesthetics of access.

ImPArt project is funded by E.U. Creative Europe program, the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sports, the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia, AktionhMensch and NRW Kultur Sekretariat Wuppertal.
