The participants of the first ODI meetings in 2015 in Italy expressed trough theatre and interviews the tragedies they have passed trough while crossing Northern Africa and
Mediterranean See in order to find a better and safer life in Europe. They didn't just find in creativity a valid tool for expression, they also have presented themselves in front of a public as
human beings full of talents and dreams for their own futures. By doing so, they contributed to reinforce the dialogue between locald and migrants and bridges were created.
ODI first session has been video-documentated by philospher, director and anthropologist Sara Casiccia, whom has chosen ODI as object of her Master Thesis in Cultural
Anthropology by Turin University. The video documentary is a precious tool, especially for arriving to the vast and international public in Europe; it is an important diffusion, as nowadays the
multiethnic transformation of western society is often lived with fear and tension.
