Migrant Days Festival 2009

MIGRANT DAYS Festival 2009

THE Migrant Women PROJECT
Three Festivals for Intercultural Dialogue
The MIGRANT WOMEN project came from an idea of ​​the coordinator of ilCAntinonearteTeatride Montepulciano, district of Siena, later developed by three European co-organisers, Motus (Siena, Italy), BollywoodPictures (Lisbon, Portugal) and ZecoraUraTheatre (London, United Kingdom ).

THE THEMES
Immigration, integration, intercultural dialogue between the culture of the country of origin and the culture of the host country. The choice of theme falls on the feminine point of view: a particular perspective of the “migrant woman”, her condition as a double minority, in her culture of origin and in the new customs of the host country, as a woman and a migrant.
Multiple questions are raised: what happens when a culture is necessarily confronted with a different one? What happens when one culture emerges in another, and when one culture embraces another? What becomes imposed, lost or received? What is hidden behind the reciprocal prejudices between those who arrive and those who welcome? And What does it mean to be a “migrant woman”?

THE EVENTS
Three European Festivals including: two theater performances, a dance performance, a projection of a documentary film, as well as a congress, three round tables and, around, numerous events associated with the project. THE MATER FESTIVAL between the cities of Montepulciano and Siena in Italy, the MIGRANT DAYS LISBOA in Portugal, and the MIGRANT DAYS LONDON in the United Kingdom. This is how Migrant Women sees and tries to look inside their own questions: through artistic language, dialogue and confrontation.

THE OBJECTIVES
Encourage intercultural dialogue, encourage the transnational circulation of artists and artistic works, encourage the mobility also of those who work in the organization and administration of the project, in order to gain knowledge of other national realities besides their own. The Migrant Women project considers the local dimension, where it was born, as important as the European dimension. The local reality is where we can discover and analyze the habits and stereotypes about the “migrant woman”, and then confront them with the European cultural diversity.
