H.O.S.T Project = Hospitality Otherness Society Theatre

The project HOST is run by the University of Salento (IT) – Department of History, Society and Human Sciences – in collaboration with Astragali Teatro (IT), ITI Paris (FR), the Province of Lecce (IT), Gal Terra d’Arneo (IT), Babelmed, Satiriko Theatre of Nicosia (CY) and Zante Theatre (GR).

The project intends to launch a study on issues related to the dialectic of immigration/hospitality proper to places that like Salento, Cadiz and the Ionian Islands, follow substantially similar dynamics. During the first half of the last century, all these lands have witnessed the departure of young people from their homelands to look for work elsewhere. In recent years, these same lands have inversely become lands hosting migrants and refugees, men and women fleeing war and poverty.
