about the workshop

In the workshop, the participants deal with power structures and (their own) privileges and develop strategies for mutual support in the hierarchical theater structures. They will also look at their own resources and how they can make use of them. How can I become sensitive to implicit exclusion and discrimination? How can I support colleagues who are subjected to racist attacks? How can I express criticism without jeopardizing my career?

The aim of the workshop is to unite theater makers through sensitization and to enable new forms of community in the field of theater.

The workshop is aimed at theater makers who want to advocate for a change in the way we treat each other in theater contexts. Using an intersectional approach, i.e. considering many forms of discrimination that can also be experienced simultaneously, the positions from which people speak will be reflected upon. The willingness to confront one's own privileges is a prerequisite for participation.

The INITIATIVE FOR SOLIDARITY IN THEATRE (ISaT) was founded in 2017 to counter ongoing inequality and discrimination in the theater sector.

The decentralized network researches power-critical and more sustainable forms of organization and collaboration and is currently working on "soft transformations" to unlearn patriarchal and neoliberal patterns.


The workshop is addressed to all those involved in artistic production.
