After the many downpours which rocked the little boat of our ignorant universe, my legs are shaking from so much counter-balancing, my hands can no longer stretch higher than my eyebrows and my eyes no longer see those lights gently dyed in nuances of old books.Still, every summer I am surprised again by the ambiguity of my feelings towards the wave of jellyfish. I am bothered by the itch of their approach, I am burned by their hugs, I loathe their appearance of mucus balls when they lie dead on the beach, I am intrigued by the stiffness of their corpses in the evening.


But at sea, oh yes, when they hide and discover themselves in the narrow stretch of sand eternally flipped by the waves, when they float with the elegance of all things white, and when they propel themselves towards the light without fear of melting their skirts, when they make horas of aquatic angels around my boat, when they live and fly and shine and flutter their charms and spasms, when they relish in their togetherness and elate in their uniqueness, how could one not love them …


The jellyfish only come by these parts of my world once a year, to die near some shore, this shore of a beautiful, ignorant and self-contained universe. Jellyfish only come here for two weeks a year, the week that just happened and the one that will start tomorrow. Like the jellyfish, my thoughts of you. Then there is this wave of tremendously thick humidity that envelops me every time a wave crashes into the amphitheater of my nights, on the beach of my sunsets.


The jellyfish, white blood cells of my years after our transformation, encourage me to wish you a beautiful birthday and three times more to come!


SISTER = “Social Inclusion through Social Theatre for Equality in Romania”

  • KA1 Erasmus Plus project
  • Training of trainers

Location = Telega, Romania

Dates = 21st-31st August 2015

Participants = 50 from the EU, MENA

9 countries = Italy, Spain, Romania, Palestine, Jordan, Israel, Serbia, Turkey and Tunis.

Aim = exploring together ways in which social theatre can become a sanitation and restructuring mechanism for social relations


DEADLINE: 5/08/2015


Social exclusion is a major problem of our time, which has replaced the “old notions” of poverty and marginalization. Social exclusion is a cause of poverty, conflict and insecurity. With this mobility we aim to improve the skills and the background of youth workers, who will be better able to identify risks and opportunities, develop themselves, and acquire additional practical tools needed to prevent and to remedy social exclusion, such as social theatre or flash mobs.

The main theme of the mobility is raising awareness of the realities and offering non-formal education tools to foster a more inclusive society through anti-discrimination youth projects with marginalised groups, against social exclusion.

Methodology: The mobility will use the non-formal and informal education methodology. Participants will be able to:

– develop their own set of skills and competences, through individual and group work, according to their needs

– develop their capacity to meet and work with new people, from different countries, backgrounds, lifestyles

– experience and improve skills of working in a multicultural team;

– improve the tolerance and the ability to constructively listen to other ideas, positions

– acquire new tools and skills to combat social exclusion

– build competences in communication

– develop ideas for new projects.

Key concepts which will be explored in our mobility will be: inclusion versus exclusion, analysing social exclusion and factors which influence it, discrimination, empowerment, youth participation versus apathy, active citizenship, local institutions and the role of NGOs,  EU and local strategies against social exclusion, attitudes towards target groups in need, taking action. Participants will learn new information, they will have space for discussion, debates, sharing and developing new tools to help them combat and surpass social exclusion efficiently.

Funding: Accommodation and meals will be provided to successful applicants. For information about travel, please see the TRAVEL Section. The fee for this project is 50€. Scholarships are available for the best participants with difficult financial situations. To apply for a scholarship explain your situation in the application form.

The tabs are quite intuitive, and really, anything goes 🙂

There comes a warmth, my baby, when I think of you

There comes a whirlpool of joy into my veins

I lift my candle-stick fingers to Heavens and bruise

Their gate of fire and waters with my verse

I had a glorious youth all around the world – I did so much

I traveled love, joy, pain and sorrow and I learned the blues

But then I looked around: new people, new places, new time

No one I knew: just you

So I gave you my wing and said: Babe, do you cruise?


Chorus: There comes a warmth, my baby, when I think of you

There comes a whirlpool of joy into my veins

I lift my candle-stick fingers to Heavens and bruise

Their gate of fire and waters with my verse

II. And we drove through the planets, walked around the sun

We made castles in the rainbow

and flew through the forest

and smiled on the terrace

and dived in the mountains

and tanned in the pig-drone

and ate in the bedroom

and tracked through the corals

and we sang the blues.

But then the day of winter came to throw us back to one

and I prayed: Oh won’t you leave us live happy, Lord, just one more day…

Chorus: There comes a warmth, my baby, when I think of you

There comes a whirlpool of joy into my veins

I lift my candle-stick fingers to Heavens and bruise

Their gate of fire and waters with my planes.

O, that this too too solid flesh would melt
Thaw and resolve itself into a dew!
Or that the Everlasting had not fix’d
His canon ‘gainst self-slaughter! O God! God!
How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable,
Seem to me all the uses of this world!
Fie on’t! ah fie! ’tis an unweeded garden,
That grows to seed; things rank and gross in nature
Possess it merely. That it should come to this!
But two months dead: nay, not so much, not two:
So excellent a king; that was, to this,
Hyperion to a satyr; so loving to my mother
That he might not beteem the winds of heaven
Visit her face too roughly. Heaven and earth!
Must I remember? why, she would hang on him,
As if increase of appetite had grown
By what it fed on: and yet, within a month–
Let me not think on’t–Frailty, thy name is woman!–
A little month, or ere those shoes were old
With which she follow’d my poor father’s body,
Like Niobe, all tears:–why she, even she–
O, God! a beast, that wants discourse of reason,
Would have mourn’d longer–married with my uncle,
My father’s brother, but no more like my father
Than I to Hercules: within a month:
Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears
Had left the flushing in her galled eyes,
She married. O, most wicked speed, to post
With such dexterity to incestuous sheets!
It is not nor it cannot come to good:
But break, my heart; for I must hold my tongue.

Spoken by  Hamlet, Hamlet Act 1 Scene 2:

The sect of the Phoenix – the age long secret which has become unveiled, desacralized by modern media. For we all are mud and to mud we shall return. Like a pure Arab blood rising from the slime of the tide, the horse trotting me about is rising from the intoxicating roses. The stallion will forever guard the entrance to the empire of the future, and the grass blades have the choice of following the hierarchy and allow for the trotting or be grazed. There are also those who may grow roots away from the path of the gatekeeper and away from the promised land of future which he majestically guards.

The kids tricked me again. I have prepared a nice presentation, slides, stories, food for thought and only four came to watch poor Antigone. She cried again over the tomb of her brother, about the other world and about the sunshine and then they all went their ways.

And then again this man comes howling from afar, I try to lure him to see his face, to poke his eye balls and trap his tail under my rocking chair, but he keeps a respectable 1km distance and keeps howling. The night is young!

The type of project: Training Course, Action 4.3

Title of project:


From 15th to 22nd of July 2011, Madrid, Spain


RoMadrid Cultural Club

The host organization, RoMadrid Cultural Club, is a the only organization of Romanian Youth in Spain and, as far as we know, in Europe (we would be glad to be proved mistaken 😉 ). We are particularly concerned with the integration of youth with cultural inclusion problems, such as young artists – poets, musicians, plastic and experimental artists -, young immigrants or refugees, descendants from immigrant or refugee families, young people belonging to a minority (national, ethnic, sexual, religious, etc.) and in general young people with cultural inclusion problems.

RoMadrid Cultural Club is a Spanish NGO with an international membership, including Spain, Venezuela, Portugal, Great Britain, Romania, Russia, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, although the majority of our members (over 1,000) and our target group are young Romanian immigrants. The literature and suburban performing arts wings of RoMadrid comprise of Círculo Poético RefleXos, the VIS workshop (Verso, Imágen, Sonido) and TIMMP group (Teatro Interpretando Música Mediante Poesía). The main aim of these groups is support and promote young artists, by offering technical and practical support in the creation, production and promotion of their art in the public sphere through concerts, exhibitions, festivals, tours, etc. Our international membership is proof of our strife to promote creative thinking, intercultural values, dialogue and integration through art and culture.


Ariadna Petri – poet and volunteer coordinator

Nebojsa Nick Djeric – experienced Salto trainer

Other daddies invited: Alex Dica, Lil´Crinal ATD, Donnarond, Shoker – suburban performing artists


About the Project


Training Course about using suburban art as a method for promoting the integration of minorities and equal opportunities for social inclusion of young people
with cultural integration problems.

The main goal of our training course “MY (SUB)ART IS YOUR (SUPER)ART” is to improve participants’ knowledge, attitudes, competences and skills in youth work by using suburban art as a method for the promotion of equal opportunities and social inclusion of young people with cultural differences – youth with cultural inclusion problems. This educational learning programme will improve the quality of practice in youth work in a general context. Particular focus will be given to Youth in Action projects as a means of promoting suburban art as a cultural inclusion method.

Using mixed means of expression from suburban performing arts (particularly hip-hop) and non-formal educational tools, participants will be able to multiply the skills and techniques acquired during this TC in their everyday work with youth with cultural inclusion problems.

Activities comprised by this Training Course include: work on individual and group means of expression from suburban performing arts, presentations and analysis of rap poetry, music, stage techniques and creative techniques, discovering the local suburban cultural environment as a means of personal affirmation of youth with a minorities’ background and cultural integration difficulties and different performing games games.

The target group of this training course comprises all people actively involved in the work with young people with cultural difficulties – youth with cultural inclusion problems, such as young artists – poets, musicians, plastic and experimental artists -, young immigrants or refugees, descendants from immigrant or refugee families, young people belonging to a national or ethnic minority, young people with linguistic adaptation problems and in general young people with cultural inclusion problems. In other words: youth workers, youth leaders, play workers, NGO activists, school teachers, social workers.

(We would like to have participants with background in performing arts and poetry or creative writing)


  • to increase participants’ knowledge of suburban art as a tool for cultural inclusion of minorities
  • to promote inclusion as a most significant value in the work with young people with a minority background and fewer opportunities – youth with cultural integration problems.
  • to encourage minorities and culturally excluded young people with fewer opportunities to express themselves through art and to play an active role in their local communities
  • to stimulate participants to reflect on the essential characteristics of the European society and foster mutual understanding between young people in different countries

  • to contribute to the development of creative capabilities and skills in youth work using creative learning methods (performing arts techniques)

Working language:

English – all participants must be able to actively communicate using the English language.

Period of realization: From 15th to the 22nd of July 2011

Location: Madrid, Spain


Partners: All interested Youth in Action Program countries

Lungi triunghiuri de intuneric siroind

sa poti pluti pe apele din mine

cu pasi de dincolo de vale alergând

reflecta viata noastra acuta indoind

cum sa nu am, cum sa nu cer uitare


În fiecare noapte ma adun

si cad morţilor din mine

cu ochiul molcom, prelungit

cu rana mare, desfacand

o tainică minune.


Şi în fiecare dimineaţă albă de ger

mi se împrăştie repetitiv esenţa prin cuvinte

prin înţelesuri şi invenţii azvârlite intre creier

şi universul de posibilittăţi ciclice si irascibile

Survolând între suflet şi minte.
