INCLUSION THROUGH PERFORMANCE
This thesis explores musical performance as a form of inclusion, especially in relation to people with special needs. It introduces a brief historical overview and traces the development of society's reaction to People with special needs over time. In addition, it defines the ideal of inclusion. Performance, often seen as a single act, is presented instead as an ongoing process, providing participants with solid grounds for growth, learning and development. This thesis flirts with the idea of musical performance not only as a form of inclusion, but as a means of achieving catharsis for both the performer and the audience simultaneously. The idea and mission of the International Festival “Igraj se z mano,” is offered as a thread for the insight into the process, development and effects of performance while proving its potency as a vehicle for inclusion.
