The message for today's World Day of Theatre: Theatre as a tool for peace!

The celebration of World Theatre Day was established in 1962 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI). Celebrated each year on March 27.

This year, the message wrote the actress, writer and scholar Jessica A. Kaahwa from Uganda.
The message of World Theatre Day is customary to read in any theater before the show on 27 March.
The theater at the service of humanity, Jessica A. Kaahwa, Uganda
"Today's rally shows the reality of the enormous power of theater to mobilize communities and to bridge the gaps." Have you ever thought about the theater as a powerful tool for peace and reconciliation?
The nations spend colossal sums of money for peacekeeping missions in areas of violent conflict around the world, giving little attention to the theater as a single option for change and crisis management.
How can people of mother earth to conquer world peace when the tools they use from external and seemingly repressive forces?
The theater subtly penetrates the human soul, which conquers fear and suspicion by changing the image that one has for oneself and unfolding for everyone, and therefore for the community, a world of possibilities.
It gives meaning to everyday realities anticipating an uncertain future. Involved with the policy of human situations in a simple and direct. Because it is comprehensive, the theater presented as an experience able to overcome past misunderstandings.
In addition, the theater is a proven means of expression and promotion of ideas for which we are willing to fight when they are violated.
To be able to achieve a peaceful future must begin using peaceful means; in seeking to understand, respect and recognition of the contribution each person in case of cooperation for peace. The theater is one universal language through which we can promote messages of peace and reconciliation.
With the active participation of the theater unites many people who are ready to deconstruct previous perceptions and, thus, gives each individual the opportunity to be reborn in order to make decisions based on knowledge and reality is revealed once again in front of him.
To prosper in the theater, among other art forms, we must make a bold step forward and integrate it in daily life, which addresses critical issues of conflict and peace.
Seeking social change and rebuild communities, we see the theater in conflict areas and in people with chronic poverty or disease. The number of successful examples ever increasing; examples where the theater mobilize the public to knowledge and to help the wounded after the war.
Cultural platforms such as the International Theatre Institute, aimed at establishing peace and friendship between the peoples and are already in place.
It is therefore a travesty to keep silent in times like ours, knowing the power of theater, and let those who handle guns and firing bombs to play the role of peacemakers in the world. How can the tools of alienation to acquire dual role as instruments of peace and reconciliation?
I challenge this World Theatre Day to consider this perspective and apply the theater as a universal tool box, social transformation and change.
Can the United Nations to spend colossal amounts of money on peacekeeping missions around the world with the use of weapons, but the theater is spontaneous, human, and a less costly alternative to much more possible "
