“InHUBitant – Creative Community Evolution” is a Polish-Norwegian project implemented by two theater centers – Teatr Brama (Goleniów) and Stella Polaris (Sandefjord), leading to the creation of two large-scale theater productions including local community participation. The project started in January 2022. „InHUBitant” focuses on building and developing communities in the socio-cultural dimension by involving them in creative processes. The project will help partners to expand their activities with local communities, create a network of local and international cooperation, and activate in residents the desire for exchange between sectors and different cultural fields. Engaging local communities will contribute to audience development in both Poland and Norway. The partners have many years of experience in the process of involving residents in their activities. Both partners have different tasks. Teatr Brama is responsible for the realization of the rock opera „Aphrodite of Warsaw” in Sandefjord, including a
variety of social and artistic groups in one show. The task for Stella Polaris Theater is to make a theatrical outdoor production in Goleniów, Poland, based on the Viking-Slavic heritage of Westpommern lands.
The theater in this case becomes a tool that partners use to connect with people and communities. We are curious to see where this process will take us.
