Following the success of Candoco Dance Company from the United Kingdom and inspired by their experience in giving confidence to disabled people through dance and theatre and in encouraging them to fulfill their potential, British Council Armenia has initiated “Unlimited: Making the Right Moves” project in 2013.
The project is supported by the British Embassy in Yerevan, the Ministry of Culture of RA, St. Sarkis Charity Trust and the Armenian diaspora in the UK. The project partner is the National Center of Aesthetics Small Theater.
The main objective of the project is to establish the first inclusive Theatre and Dance Company in Armenia, consisting of disabled and non-disabled actors.
The goals of the inclusive Theatre and Dance Company will be.
- To organise public performances and workshops;
- To act as a policy “arm”, that will provide consultancy to public bodies and institutions on access and engagement;
- To have an academic/educational team, that will promote and deliver integrated practice in educational institutions;
- To become entrepreneurial and, ultimately, self-sustainable.
