about the workshop

The workshop offered the participants the chance to explore their bodies in relation to space and nature. It was suitable for anyone interested in developing their creative expression, movement, and transformation through theatre whilst simultaneously connecting to the natural and social environment.

During the workshop, improvisational theatrical exercises were implemented that focused on the three levels of bodily awareness: bodily, emotional, spiritual. The exercises explored how these three levels can be affected by the environment, which is now facing climate change.

Beyond its practical scope, the workshop aimed at the familiarisation of the participants with contemporary dramaturgy, aiming to affect them in order to develop theatrical material related to nature and the climate crisis.
