How much: app. 390.- € (Subsidies are available for those in need)
How often do we see theatre about important community or world issues, where we can’t really engage because the characters’ actions are unbelievable, making the theatre unbelievable? 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’. This 5-day workshop will investigate concrete tools to help create character-driven plays about social issues, with complex relationships between the characters.
