OBJECT THEATRE || ART IN CONTEXT || COMMUNITY ARTIVISM || TRANSCULTURAL CREATIVITY
Chaulet and Saba Tsereteli founded the company Theatre of Details in
2012 as one of the first project of the association Artistania e.V.
Since then the Theatre of Details works together with artists from
different disciplines and tries to dissolve borders between fine arts
and performing arts. The ambition of the Theatre of Details is to create
unconventional and participatory artistic practices, to invite the
audience to go on a surreal and imaginative journey and to reclaim
poetry and community experiences in the public space.
known for its use of puppets, masks, and object theater, the artistic
methods of the Theatre of Details became more and more eclectic and
multifaceted. Nowadays the Theatre of Details use a wide range of
techniques including lantern-making, story-telling, land art, stop
the same philosophy remains: The different artworks of Theatre of
Details aim to transform hostile environments into inspiring and social
spaces. Giant Marionnettes, Sculptures in Context, Creative Workshops,
collective creations… all these approaches follow the same logic: to use
art as an international language to create bounds between people and
engage in civil society.
OBJECT THEATREThe "Theater of Details" takes its name from the objects, which, with
their symbolism and subtleties, play a decisive role in the creation of a
unique atmosphere and aesthetic. In our plays, the spectator is
expected to submit themselves to the fictitious and accept that the
clear separation between the manipulated and the manipulative is
blurred. All objects are handmade and follow the principle of upcycling:
we create functional and valuable objects from scrap or surplus
ART IN CONTEXT
work with our surroundings, with the materials we found and the themes
and problems we face in specific contexts. But one is sure: as greyer
the context as more we want to color it! The artistic interventions in
common or public spaces are a result of collaborative work with the
people using these spaces.
Theatre of Details aim is to reinforce the social ties and break
isolation processes through artistic practices. The cooperation of
people from different backgrounds around one artistic project provokes a
great feeling of empowerment. We believe that realizing your own
creative potential, have opportunities to implement crazy ideas together
with other individuals foster political activation, community
organizing and social responsibility.
share a vision of art not as an elitist good but as a tool to overcome
languistic, national, and economical barriers. We use creativity as a
pretext to join disparate worlds and create unusual encounters and
cooperations. For us the meeting of different worlds allows on one hand
the emergence of new ideas and new dynamics and on the other hand
challenges stereotypes and animosity.
