Project Vårby Game: Send Caitlin to Sweden!

From Caitlin Antram

Help me head to Stockholm, Sweden to gain insight into the creation of a large scale community theater project so that I may return to Philly and apply the process here.

Hi my name is Caitlin and I am raising money to support my summer internship with Teatr Slava of Stockholm, Sweden.

Teatr Slava is a group of theater artists who create their own work and perform in repertory for both adults and children. They do an enormous amount of educational and community outreach programs and have had great success enriching the artistic life of their region. 

I am headed over to Stockholm on July 26th to join them in the creation of their annual "Vårby Game"- a community theater project created in collaboration with residents of a small, economically disadvantaged suburb of Stockholm in their public spaces. We start the project on July 28th and will perform in the third week of August.

I became inspired by this work when I learned about it in the fall of 2012. Over the last decade, the project has served as an example of how theater can be used as a tool of community engagement and empowerment as well as a source of artistic expression and entertainment. 

My desire in joining them in the creation of this new piece of theater is to come to understand the techniques and logistics of how the project functions so that I may return to Philadelphia, PA and apply the process to a poorer community near where I live.

Thanks for reading. I really appreciate your support. 

With love and gratitude,

Caitlin Antram
