CONTENT AND THEMES
The alliance of the cultural association dieKunstBaustelle, the secondary school Landsberg am Lech and the theatre group “Die Stelzer” will implement the project “Bahnhof 119” in an extracurricular setting, a theatre project in Geltendorf with young people between May and June 2021.
In the process, theatre skills will be taught under the direction of the theatre Die Stelzer. In the first phase of the implustage, five days will be spent trying out theatre games, designing stage sets as living pictures, followed by a training phase of ten days in which they will work together on a theatre machine. About 14 young people between the ages of 13 and 18 will participate. Due to the Corona pandemic, it is unfortunately not certain how a public performance can be timed at the end.
The taster courses and workshops will initially offer the opportunity to get to know, experience, try out and practice acting skills, speaking, moving, and improvisation. For this purpose, first models for stage sets will also be designed. Afterward, the young people will work with the waiting room in the train station to build a “theatre machine”.
The core objective is to promote the competencies of 14 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 and language and text work enables a variety of levels of experience.
The project ran from 14 May to 30 June 2021.
The exhibition and installation will be open to the public from 6 to 30 June.
