Theatre as Communal Experience at Lola Lieven

Theatre as Communal Experience
Workshop at Lola Lieven

This theatre workshop aims to gather around the necessity of grassroots, multidisciplinary, multilingual, transcultural artistic expression based on theatre, music, singing, visual arts, voice and body performance.
We explore the basics of the performative practice: posture, movement, presence, body, the other in the space, games and the voice in many of its expressions.
Our voices engage in spoken word, text and poetry to reach the poetry performance: from poetry to theatre.
Our bodies will play roles and will accompany impros and storytelling. Our practice will originate from ourselves: memories, stories and sounds of stones and steps, images of repopulated land, memories of touching each other, smell of seaweed.
The workshops aim to build communities and commonalities with theatrical, performative pedagogies, As a cultural space of Lola Lieven, we are engaged in creating a connected neighbourhood. With this series of workshops, we would like to give space to different backgrounds of people, people with refugee, undocumented experiences, activists, artivists, elderly and young people and different identities. Racialised backgrounds have priority in the space of Lola Lieven.
Theatre as Communal Experience is open to neighbourhood residents of Lola Lieven but also to anyone willing to participate. No artistic background is required, we only aim at creating community and awareness.
Five Sessions of 180 minutes each

Anyone can do theatre, even actors. And theatre can be done everywhere. Even in a theatre
