Be Part of 
The River's Course

27. 5. 2023, 16.00

Mezi ploty

„Listy na vodě unáší proud, dej mi jen na chvíli do tebe nahlédnout.“

Vojtěch a Irena Havlovi

An international dance and theatre event with live music that will connect performers and musicians from around the world with people suffering from mental illness in a single performance. Under the artistic direction of an American-Canadian creative team, dozens of project participants worked together to create a collaborative performance that will not only be a multi-disciplinary viewing experience, but also a celebration of togetherness. Be Part of The River's Course is an intense message that diversity does not undermine community, but is irreplaceably enriching.

The performance is part of the two-year international Be Part! project, which connects communities across countries, languages cultures and generations, using the artistic process as a tool to promote civil society development, a sense of belonging and visibility for marginalised groups. Its implementation has been made possible by financial support from the EEA and Norway Grants, the European Union through the National Recovery Plan, the Ministry of Culture and the State Fund for Culture.
