"The True Story" I Berlim.

A WARM INVITATION to the PREMIERE and the other ideas of “THE TRUE STORY” on 30.08 at 19h at the JugendTheaterWerkstatt Spandau (JTW), Berlim.

The JTW ensemble picks up on the generational conflicts of our time with a grotesque parable. For “The true story” several narratives are linked together and make a portrait of the present:
In a distant land, the rumor goes around that the rulers devour children in solemn banquets. With a special theatrical investigation following the cannibalistic charges, the view of alcohol can be obscured, hallucinating, regaining strength and getting caught up in the conflict of generations, in nepotism and corruption.
Cannibalism as the central motif of “true history” is also a symbol of our contemporary capitalist and colonial society. We are living at the expense of future generations, our children - and they have only 3 options: they rebel, they understand the system and carry it on or they get eaten.
A real fiction with hit music and big costumes.
Further performances on Sat 31.8. at 19: 00h, Mon 2.9. at 11: 00h, Fri 6.9. at 19: 00h, Sat 7.9. at 19: 00h * (with sign translation), Sun 8.9. at 16: 00h * (with audio description), Sat 14.9. at 19: 00h, Sun 15.9. at 16: 00h, Sat 21.9. / 19: 00h * (with conference from 14h), Sun 22.9. at 16: 00h * (with child care).

Theatre and Migration: Creative Encounters

Monday,17 April 2017 ¦ 19h• workshop ¦ 21h• public debate

This event explores emerging theatrical responses to migration in light of recent migration and shifts in global politics and economics. We aim to survey new theatrical forms of migrant representation and to talk about possible impacts on national theatre cultures in shaping the perception of non-European migrants and migrant cultures. The event will bring together academic and practitioners’ perspectives and is designed to look at migrant perspectives on the grounds of theatre making, creating a platform where creative practices as well as cultural, theoretical and policy perspectives can meet and be debated.


Led by Fadi Skeiker, Syrian theatre practitioner and scholar (Visiting Associate Professor of Theatre, University of Minho), this practice-led, participatory workshop will use applied theatre techniques to approach topics of exile, refugedom and asylum in performance. The workshop will use textual and physical elements in an experimental way.

Participants are asked to read the following two articles in advance and to bring a printed copy to the workshop:
