Kamchàtka

Street theatre – More than 350 performances in 27 different countries all over the world.

Eight characters lost in the city, each carrying their own suitcase. Passers-by or immigrants?

Naïve and curious, their emotions are barely contained, they know nothing about our norms, our rules and our way of life.
The game they play is so subtle it could be mistaken for reality. It is precisely there where a space for dialogue opens, where the spectator becomes an active part of the exchange and the experimentation. Kamchàtka eventually turns into a mirror ; a mirror of our behavior towards the Other, the Foreign, the Different. Shall we build our future with the Kamchàtka members or should we reject them? Intense, potent and contemporary street theatre which prances over frontiers and upon our humanity.

 


 

Migrar

Workshop and human experience around street arts and migrations.

“Migrar” is more than a workshop, it is a journey that the Kamchàtka company offers all those who wish to discover the city which they have arrived in, or which they have never left, with a new viewpoint, free of prejudice, with a child’s curiosity, dealing with the theme of immigration.
“Migrar” is a collective experience where theatre is conceived as a social ritual meant for discovering and reinventing oneself, of reencountering ones own story, similar to the dynamics in our ever-changing society.
“Migrar” offers an opportunity of working with a collective, sharing living experiences and feeling as an immigrant through games.
“Migrar” starts as an individual experience that turns into a collective one.The theatrical techniques are used for creating both a distinctive language and group unity that allow the collective to rediscover every day life realities and to put forward different tools, which contribute to a broader reflexion over our society.
