Street Theater Projects

K’Art-Na/ الكـــارنا


The “K’Art-Na” project will consist of a bus tour of theatre performances covering various geographical areas in Southern Tunisia, in an attempt to raise awareness about discrimination against black minorities in Tunisia. K’Art-Na’s bus will be converted into an equipped stage to become an encouraging environment that reaches the public for performances and workshops to create communication, dialogue and interaction.  By bringing together and training different artists with diverse backgrounds, the K’Art-Na project aims to create a new and mobile artistic group and to demonstrate that  performances can stimulate a dialogue about the issue of racism and raise awareness within the Southern Tunisian community. K’Art-Na hopes to create a profound and vital influence on the public regarding  racial discrimination and further challenge the perception of inferiority towards black people.

يتكون مشروع “الكارنا” من جولة من العروض المسرحية بحافلتها، والتي سوف تجوب مختلف المناطق الجغرافية في جنوب تونس، في محاولة لرفع مستوى الوعي حول قضية التمييز والتفرقة العنصرية ضد الأقليات السود في تونس. سيتم تحويل حافلة الكارنا إلى مسرح ذو بيئة تفاعلية و مشجعة لخلق التواصل والحوار  بين الجمهور والمنظمين للعرض وورش العمل.   من خلال جمع وتدريب فنانين من خلفيات متنوعة، يهدف المشروع لإنشاء مجموعة فنية جديدة ومتنقلة، لإثبات أن الأداء الفني بإمكانه تحفيز عملية الحوار حول قضية العنصرية  والعمل على رفع الوعي داخل المجتمع التونسي الجنوبي. كارنا تأمل في خلق تأثير عميق وحيوي على المجتمع التونسي فيما يتعلق بالتمييز العنصري و تحدي النظرة الدونية تجاه الأقليات السود في تونس.
