Disabled Actors Aim to Inspire Through Theater
"It's a union of those who are creative but feel alienated by a society which doesn't understand and doesn't know about their problems and their inner world" -Sergey Enenberg
People with neuropsychological conditions, down syndrome and autism, united in Ukraine to create art and theatre productions.
As part of the performance, the actors had a chance to improvise. The show was part of a project called “A Chain Reaction of Inspiration.”
“This is one of the main ways of self-expression. Through art therapy, they can show that they are able to achieve something in life,” mother of one of the actors Alla Humenchuk said.
The organizers behind the project said they wanted to make the art available for the public.
“The project’s aim is to unite people, groups, and those with disabilities together. It’s a union of those who are creative but feel alienated by a society which doesn’t understand and doesn’t know about their problems and their inner world,” co-organiser of the project Sergey Enenberg said.
At the event, short videos were shown about artists from around the world with disabilities.
