DIVADLO BEZ DOMOVA - Bratislava, Slovakia
Their main mission is to work with marginalised communities of citizens in an unconventional creative form using the means of theatre, performing arts, dance or singing.
Divadlo bez domova - Theatre With No Home (herein after referred to as DBD) provides a platform for presenting social topics that are being overlooked in the commercial artistic sphere. They combine the artistic with the social in order to help tear down stereotypes that marginalised communities face in the society. DBD was informally founded in 2005 in the course of work on theatrical projects with people without a home and it became registered with the Ministry of Interior of the Slovak Republic on 2006.
Members of the organisation are people, who are in the long run engaged in the social, educational and artistic practice. They are based in Bratislava, Slovakia – in the Palace Pisztory. Devastated space they were able to reconstruct and turn into a theatre where can work people who usually have no voice – especially homeless people, physically handicapped people, people with mental disorder, ex-prisoners and other vulnerable people.
They organize national and international workshops for students, teachers, other professionals and/or large public. Since 2006, they also organise the International festival of homeless theatre, "ERROR". Their community of actors and actresses is made up of people without home, physically disabled, people from socially underprivileged communities, social workers, theatre artists and anyone who is interested in our theatre.
