At the Wirkcamp 2014 from 1.-4. May 2014 in Freiburg we offered a scientific theatre workshop. The event was organized by an initiative called “Synagieren – Initiative für Gemeinsames Handeln” and students & practitioners from all around Germany were invited to participate.
During the two days of the workshop we shared our experience of how to use theatre as a tool for communicating policy and scientific debates on sustainability. We introduced some basic theatre exercises that then enabled us to playfully and interactively deal with sustainability issues and start a dialogue amongst ourselves and the environment. During the two days, we collectively found common themes that we were interested in to develop short scenes which we combine into a small piece.
The participants developed various scenes based on improvisations and presented them at the Wirkcamp’s evening event. The performance can be watched below:
