The project is supported by the Creative Europe Program of the European Union.

It aims to create innovative models in the field of Social and Community Theatre and conflict transformation through the performing arts, based on audience engagement and intercultural artistic practices.
E.T.E.R.I.A. envisages the implementation of a targeted co-working on the issue of conflict and its audiovisual narratives in Italy, North Macedonia, Greece and Romania.
A theatre workshop is held in Skopje (North Macedonia) on the topic of “Unknown Memories of Conflicts”.

Three thematic artistic Residences are held, titled “Crossroads and Borders”, “Conflict and Memories” and “Conflict and Migrations”, in three important, but partially abandoned, archaeological sites in Constanta (Romania), Zakynthos (Greece), Lecce (Italy). An international theatre co-production is made and played in all the sites.

“Eteria” means the alliance of the bodies, the creation of a company that aims to go beyond separations through the artistic encounter.
