2015-02-02

At the end of February 2015 starts a new intercultural theater workshop in range of the project " THEATRE / MEETING" organized by Strefa WolnoSłowa,  the Foundation for Development „Beyond Borders” and the Theater Powszechny.

Join us if you want to:

  • meet new people
  • spend your free time in a creative way
  • learn and improve Polish language
  • feel how it is to be an actor and take part in a creation of a theater performance for a huge audience 
  • learn new skills that will become useful for you not only on the theater stage!

The first workshop meetings will be dedicated to the integration of the group through theater games, basic acting tasks and experiments with voice and body. The starting point for the workshops improvisations will become a book "The Tongue Set Free" by Elias Canetti – the  autobiographical story of Canetti’s childhood with the background of the multicultural Europe just before the First World War. Themes from the book will be used as a material for physical and verbal improvisations.  On the basis of improvisation of participants we are going to create a performance that will be presented in May 2015 in Teatr Powszechny in Warsaw.

The workshops are open to foreigners and Poles. In particular, we invite students from the courses of Polish language, which are organized in Foundation for Development „Beyond Borders”. Previous theater experience is not required!

Strefa WolnoSłowa  created a several  performances, which were presented  in Warsaw. The performances  were the results of theater workshops with the participation of Poles, migrants and refugees. The Foundation works also outside Poland and organizes art events focused on intercultural dialogue all over Europe. In March 2014 at the Studio Teatralne „KOŁO” the performance "The whole life before of us" was presented as the result of the first part of this intercultural theater project "THEATRE / MEETING".

INFORMATION MEETING WILL BE HELD  ON FRIDAY 20th OF FEBRUARY AT THE VENUE OF FOUNDATION FOR DEVELOPMENT „BEYOND BORDERS” IN THE MAZOWIECKA 12/24  STREET AT 6 PM.
