CONTENT AND TOPICS
The alliance of the cultural association dieKunstBaustelle, the secondary school Landsberg am Lech, and the theatre group “Die Stelzer”, will be supported by the project “Außer Rand und Band. to implement an extra-curricular theatre project in Landsberg am Lech with educationally disadvantaged young people between October and November 2020.
Under the direction of the theatre, the young people on stilts will be taught the skills to play theatre with theatre on stilts. In the first phase of the impulsive days, five days are dedicated to trying out theatrical play and walking on stilts, followed by a training phase of ten days during which the participants work together on a performance. About 15 to 20 young people aged 11 to 18 years will participate. Due to the Corona pandemic, it is unfortunately not possible to show a public performance at the end.
In the taster courses and workshops, the first thing that is offered is to get to know, experience, try out and practice acting skills, speaking, moving, improvisation, and the acrobatic ability to play on stilts. Afterward, the topos of the classic “hero’s journey” is taken up with the young people and their own stories are developed.
The core objective is to promote the skills of 15-20 educationally disadvantaged young people in order to strengthen their artistic, narrative, performing, and communicative competencies. On the one hand, young people are to be given space for self-expression, but also for participation in other lifeworlds. The combination of body-oriented theatre on stilts and speech and text work enables a variety of levels of experience.
The project was implemented from 1 October to 15 November 2020.
