Abstract

Social theatre offers the opportunity to transform fragility into artistic performance by means of interpersonal connections and direct participation in playful and corporeal practises. Quartieri di vita, the International Training and Social Theatre Festival organised by the Fondazione Campania dei Festival in December 2021, involved seven socially vulnerable groups operating in the Campania Region. The dialogue between human sciences, neurosciences, and theatrical cultures brings out how, through embodying arts, fragilities resulting from wounds can be transformed into gifts for others. Through scenic interactions, traumatic and painful experiences transform into conflicted and intense life stories that provide possibilities to cultivate positive emotions, care, and support. According to research on embodied simulation, it is the sharing of the same bodily condition between observer and observed that enables a direct form of understanding that we can label ‘empathic’. Through reflection, fragility, art, and beauty intertwine and multiply in the eyes of others, embracing an inclusive vision.
