This project is based on the method The Theatre of the Oppressed. Mixed group of twelwe young people (students) Roma and Czech nationality will be established. They will think about coexistence between czech majority and roma minority and especially about their own experiences on this field. Result – short theatre – will be present firstly for professional public and then chosen schools will be adressed (according to the ratio of Czech and Roma students in the schools). We would like to produce 5 reprises for students, all in Prague theatre space Rock Café. Students will be confrontated with difficult social situation of their classmates and they will also have enough space for formulating their own view and possible solutions, which could change the situation. Contructive dialoug between two groups of young people is the main aim.
