Who am I? – And if yes, why?

A Workshop about People in Germany

»Identity« has many facets and faces. This workshop goes far beyond Jewish themes and encourages thought about identity in a heterogeneous society.

Participants playfully explore questions about self image, similarities, and differences, and exchange information on the opportunities and challenges of diversity in our postmigrant society.

Using “biographical boxes” with selected quotations, materials, and objects, participants learn about different paths through life and listen in interviews to life stories of different people in Germany today.

In simple theatrical exercises, participants create new fictional characters based on their own and others’ experiences. They can reflect on their experiences in a scene and explore new lines of action on stage.
