SPACE brings a week of  playful activities and immersive storytelling based on the ‘politics of the personal’. The narrative is generated through storytelling, spoken word, movement and theatre, all on the edge of fiction and  reality. The participants will work in pairs, individually and together as a group and actively shape the 5-day creative process with their contributions culminating in a performance in the form of community based theatre. They will become co-authors and by engaging, re-imagining,  sharing local experiences, stories and narratives of the Island; They create material for an interactive presentation, an imaginary proposal for a new European narrative.
