Opera co-creation for a social transformation
Traction will provide a bridge between opera professionals and specific communities at risk of exclusion based on trials, understood as experimental attempts, to foster an effective community dialogue between diverse individuals and collectives on each one of the nodes. Moreover, TRACTION will also address cross-fertilisation activities between these trial-nodes and new ones that will join the network during its lifetime.
The aim of this project is to promote, through their empowerment, a transformation of communities at risk of exclusion. To achieve that goal, we will establish an effective collaborative and participatory production workflow for the co-creation and co-design of art representations, using a community-centric methodology to conduct a dialogue, and exploring novel audio-visual formats. A toolset will be designed and developed to foster democratisation of opera, using technology as a means to reach new audiences and to connect artists with audiences.
- To use new ideas of co-creation and participatory art to involve citizens in the creative process of opera.
- To empower people and communities in three trials: inner-city Barcelona, a youth prison in Leiria and rural communities in Ireland
- To embrace new technologies in order to establish an effective participatory production workflow and to explore novel audio-visual art representation formats.
- To provoke an impact on the relationship between opera and digital technology.
