Games & Exercises

 “Theater is a form of knowledge; it is the place where individuals can model new worlds, new realities, and new possibilities.” – Augusto Boal

 “Games and exercises” is an immersive workshop inspired by Augusto Boal’s groundbreaking book “Games for actors and non-actors”. Led by Christoph Leucht, director of KURINGA, artistic director of the acclaimed forum group WIR SIND HIER!, and a key contributor to the Masculinities Lab, this workshop promises to be enrich your knowledge 

In this dynamic and engaging workshop, we will delve into a series of games and exercises carefully crafted to expand our scenic repertoire, foster creativity, and cultivate critical thinking. Christoph’s wealth of experience and expertise in applied theater ensures that participants will not only learn new techniques but also gain deeper insights into the power of theater as a tool for social change.

We’ll kick off with a vibrant warm-up session designed to awaken our senses and prepare our bodies and minds for the theatrical journey ahead. From there, we’ll dive into a series of theater games that will stimulate our imaginations, foster collaboration, and strengthen our bonds as a group.

This workshop is open to everyone, including educators, community leaders, activists, artists, and anyone with a passion for social justice and creative expression. No prior experience in theater is required—all you need is an open mind and a willingness to engage.

By participating in this workshop, you’ll not only acquire valuable tools for your theatrical toolkit but also become part of a dynamic and supportive community of individuals dedicated to using theater as a catalyst for positive change.
