„You like to write, but 140 characters is not enough even as a warm up?
You like to make videos, but 15 Snapchat seconds allow you to make barely an introductory frame?
After a performance you are agonizing over questions like: how actors and dancer are able to memorize all the texts and movements, what do they do after the final applause, where… Don’t cudgel your brains any more!
We did the work for you and certainly have answers to at least some of your questions.
Register to join the creative writing workshop, write a story or make a photo, become a critic or a reporter at festival and maybe things will CLICK exactly in your case.“

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKSHOP:
This is a workshop about creative writing and critical contemplation about contemporary theatre and dance performances.
