The main objective of the course is to develop and perform a socio-critical theatre play. Within the context of this process the students will engage with theoretical principles of dramatic theory and critical theory and will have the opportunity to experience alternative perspectives and fields of action by translating these into an artistic form. The aim is to explore contradictions within society by the means of personal experiences,  the study of critical literature and their enactement on stage. This creative space will allow participants to challenge their own position and perspectives and reveal other possibilities to act.

Referring to Augusto Boals Theatre of the Opressed we ware going to use theatre as a form of emancipation and liberation. In analysis of critical theory on the the topics power structures, acceleration and alienation, sexuality, spontaneity, flexibility and identity we will construct fictional characters and theatre scenes. In the process of screenplay writing and production we will fathom new fields of action in a playful and artistic manner. The participants will be introduced to the study of critical literature, writting a screenplay and the enactment character so that at the end of the process a short theatre play or critical performance comes into existence. There are no requirements concerning background knowledge, only the readiness to get involved with the creative process.
