TABOO WORKSHOP

 

What would we not do in TYA?

A seminar and workshop led by artists from four continents. Which are the taboos in TYA? Are we as artists tackling the most important subjects in TYA? By asking what we dare not do we face important questions about our own limitations, which will be explored through practical exercises.

Since 2008, ASSITEJ has initiated several inter-regional workshops on the theme of Taboos in Theatre for Children and Young People. These are artistic encounters of theatre practitioners where they share their experiences and experiment with the most difficult subjects in TYA. As part of the ASSITEJ International meeting in Linz in June 2013 there will be a short version of a taboo workshop – two sessions of three hours each on the 25th and 26th of June. Artists from four continents will bring insights into taboos in TYA in their own region as a starting point. Participants will then have the opportunity to engage with the subject matter in practical work with colleagues from around the world.

Which are the taboos in theatre for young audiences around the world? Are we as artists  tackling the most important subjects in TYA or do we shy away from them because of our own inhibitions? By asking what we dare not do in our artistic work for children, we face important questions about our role and limitations, which will be explored through practical exercises in the workshop. A seminar and practical workshop in two 3 hour sessions led by a group of artists from four continents. 

There is no workshop-fee and a light lunch will be on offer for the participants on both workshop days. 

This is a closed workshop for selected participants. If you want to participate, please read the call out. The deadline has been extended until May 1st.
