We do not believe that theater is a decent survival of worldly habits or an abstract homage to the culture. The theater is the place where the community freely flocking to contemplate and to live again, it shows itself. (G.Strehler)
Affabulazione, which has its roots in Ostia, is a place for the promotion of social and cultural activities for the territory in which it is inserted and also for the initiatives it has conducting for 25 years, that invest the sphere of human formation by addressing all categories of people: young, immigrants, disabled, elderly, children and adults.
The center is a place of hospitality for artists of various disciplines and produces multidisciplinary live shows, such as "L’isola sconosciuta", staged reading of "The Tale of the Unknown Island" by Jose Saramago, "The Vagina Monologues", by eponymous book by Eve Ensler, "La voce delle donne", "Toporagno e Sedanorapa". In addition to the activity of artistic production, the Center supports cultural training activities with about 15 daily courses, including photography, dance, music, theater and painting, taking place in weekday afternoons, while social and artistic initiatives have been organized on holidays.
Affabulazione is a cultural center operating in the field of integration of people with disabilities and training for trainers; in collaboration with the Association “Note di Colore Onlus”, the center is involved in the coordination of training, theoretical and practical courses, for teachers of elementary public schools on art therapy.
Teachers are involved in a process of one year-long training and are constantly monitored by the trainers / art therapists. Affabulazione, with its several initiatives, brings together the ability to transform art into a tool for growth and territorial redevelopment, by breaking down physical, social and cultural right barriers.
