identity figures in contemporary theatre – what we will do

Nationalism, populism and intolerance are global problems that affect Europe at its core. In this project we are particularly interested in the cultural dimension of this.

Our image of Europe is shaped – more than by politicians or political programmes – by identity-generating figures who are associated with art, culture and intellectual life. Figures such as Cervantes, Shakespeare, Einstein, Simone de Beauvoir, Marie Curie, da Vinci, Goethe stand for an European identity and forms of cosmopolitanism. All these figures show tolerant perspectives that can create identity.

Already in the search for figures it becomes clear how national our thinking still is – and how the names of men are initially in the majority. In this respect, elements of research are necessary: Which female identity figures are there? Which are of non-European origin? What about more contemporary or current figures? And what Afro-European role-models are there?

In this project we work with performance and theatre techniques.

The workshops are open for everyone who is interested in theatre and performance, especially artists and cultural mediators, people teaching theatre and dance, as well as pedagogics and students.

In workshops, discussions and accompanying events, they meet, learn new approaches to theater and deal with the project-questions.

Important aspects are also the networking of the participants and insights into concrete projects based on the idea of mutual learning. In addition, we present tools for administrative things such as financing, application and project implementation.

At the end of the last two workshops, public workshop performances of the results will take place, basically for colleagues and friends of the participants.

Other public formats such as discussions, lectures and performances by the participating artists also serve this purpose.

The workshops build on each other, but are set up in a way that it’s also possible to attend part of them.
