Humankinds

Life – A tactile perception of the world
In collaboration with the Piraeus Municipal Theatre

Institutions: Margarita, Special education workshop, Special school for autistic children of Piraeus

Group: Children with intellectual disability and children with autism spectrum disorder

Temperatures, textures, shapes will be the ingredients of an experiential performance inviting visitors to approach the world through children’s touch.




Humankinds, a programme of events organized by the Piraeus Municipal Theatre and its artistic director, Nikos Diamantis, taps into the rich reserve of values, lived history and personal testimonies found across the various communities of Piraeus. Artistic groups from different fields (theatre, literature, visual arts, artistic education, music) collaborate with social institutions in Piraeus, approaching select social groups. Together with the participants, they design and present a work conveying their own outlook of life through their own perspective.

The Holy Bible as the context

The programme is structured around the fundamental human values pervading all civilizations and constituting the moral, ontological and existential heritage of humanity, beyond any cultural, geographical, historic and other distinctions. The Holy Bible is the founding text of dissemination and bequeathing of these values in the West. Every event included in the programme will be enriched by a Biblical text, illuminating the content and values of the event.
