„Theatre for the Great Transformation“ – Earth Charter Theatre Workshop

3.-5. October 2014 and 17.-19. April 2015 in Guggenhausen, Southern Germany (Lake of Constance)

The Great Transformation does not take place in our heads. But:

  • in motion

  • with body, heart and mind

  • wild und creative

  • together in exchange

  • with a new vision and change of perspective

  • courageous and strong-willed

  • in an open space to experiment and improvise

  • with alternative forms of communication

  • … and visionary!

Playfully we are translating sustainable development issues into action. Based on movement, standing pictures and small scenes and inspired by the Earth Charter as international Vision for a sustainable future.

At the first weekend in October 2014 the workshop will introduce and focus on the practical and interactive methods of the Earth Charter Theatre. The participants will pratice their perception, presence and ability to react and improvise. Techniques of various forms of political theatre will be used – including the Theatre of the Oppressed,  Theatre for Living and Scientific Theatre. Based on the exercises the participants will develop small scenes and present them on the street in April 2015.

The workshop "Theatre for the Great Transformation" is for everybody who likes to realize the Great Transformation with fun, creativity and vitality - with and without experience in acting. The two weekends are cohesive and constitutive. Please register for both weekends.
