SaBarBar is a platform for open participation in a co-creation process, triggered by true stories, testimonies and narratives of residents of Exarcheia, which will be converted into lyrics, songs, serenades and a theatrical polyphonic performance.
It is a call to an unmediated experience of sharing and open discussion in public space, in an effort to learn from each other, from the way each of us perceives the reality in the neighborhood. In order to bring the ‘other realities’ into a dialectical relationship with each other, highlighting practices of co-creation, synergy and active participation in the common space.
The actions of saBarBar are addressed to everyone. They include extrovert activities in the neighborhood, workshops of oral history, song creation and theater, (open) rehearsals and a theatrical polyphonic performance.
Responsible for the extroversion of saBarBar is an "art and meeting space on wheels" which will often park in Exarchia and will create an occasion for us to meet, exchange ideas and reflections.. At the same time, it will collect stories, inform and invite everyone to take part in the next actions.
SaBarBar's actions will be followed by the creation of an online platform that will support the networking possibilities between oral history groups, musicians and song writers.
Look for it and ... join the ride !!
