If there is a technical Rider, why not an ecological Rider? What is more sustainable, a trip or twenty hours of zoom? What are the alternatives if you don't want to use styrofoam on stage anymore? How to justify the expensive but sustainable purchase in the context of a funding?

The ECO RIDER is a tool to start working sustainably in front of, on and behind the stage.

During the 3-hour workshop, all participants are invited to take a look at the different working areas of sustainable stage production and to deal with practical implementation by means of examples.

The ECO RIDER workshop is explicitly aimed at all people producing theater - whether permanently employed or freelance - and invites them to ask questions and to deal with the basics of operational ecology together. The bfdk eco rider was developed by the artist franziska pierwoss together with the BFDK (Bundesverband Freie Darstellende Künste e. V.).

about [un]learning structures

The events in the frame of [un]learning structures - curated and organized by nara virgens, epona hamdan & melmun bajarchuu - tackle questions of  how to produce in a way that is sensitive towards different forms of discriminiation and critical of power structures in the performing arts with a focus on accessibility from an anti-ableist perspective, racism through a structural lense, thinking about how sustainability intersects with these two themes – and how these approaches can be put into practice. more about the event series [un]learning structures

target group

The workshop is aimed at protagonists in artistic production within the independent performing arts who want to reflect on and redesign or further develop existing production processes. With its practical focus, the workshop aims at the application of the presented contexts in existing production processes, which the participants shape or redesign in their individual work environment.
