August 27 – 31 Making character-driven theatre in Innsbruck, Austria The transformational power of theatre is not in its good intentions; it is in the theatre’s ability to help us recognize ourselves and the people around us (even those with whom we disagree) at a deep and human level. In order to accomplish this, the theatre must be ‘character driven’ – not ‘issue-driven’. The issues are important but we can only engage when the characters’ actions are believable, that makes believable theatre! This 5-day workshop will investigate concrete tools to help create character-driven plays about social issues, with complex relationships between the characters. Language: English (easy to understand, basic knowledge is enough) How much: 390.- € (Subsidies are available for those in need) More information and registration: armin.staffler@spectACT.at
“David Diamond (…) has created a special form of political theatre called Theatre for Living. (…) The unique feature of [Theatre for Living] is that, instead of producing theatre for communities, it makes theatre with communities. In hundreds of projects and workshops [David Diamond] has used theatre as a means to create political change by empowering communities to use the language of theatre – words, movement, gestures, dance – to tell their stories, open up new channels of communication, and face difficult problems such as racism, gender stereotypes, addiction and violence.” (Fritjof Capra, foreword in David Diamond’s book: “Theatre for Living: The Art and Science of Community-based Dialogue”)
