"Can a plant change the history of the world?",
Sonia Mologousi - theatrologist, drama practitioner
Iro Potamousi - sociologist, drama practitioner
A 3 hours workshop. Sunday 27/8/2017, 17:30-20:30
Language: greek

How is Abraham Lincoln, capoeira and a sugar cane related? Can a plant change the history of the world? The aim of the workshop is the empirical contact and the introduction to ways and methods of processing the concepts of human rights through theatrical and other techniques. A parallel aim is the effort to explore fundamental principles of human rights such as participation, equality, respect, democracy, freedom and the connection to historical events that occurred at national or global level and are related to major violations of Human Rights - as well as the individuals or social groups that contributed to their preservation and defense. The methodology and the content of the workshop can be used as teaching material for the course "Social and Political Education" in the 6th Grade of Primary and 3rd Grade of High School.
The workshop is aimed at teachers, activists, theatrologists, students, facilitators, NGO executives.
The workshop is participatory and includes exercises, games, improvisations, role play and other activities and is built step by step. That's why participants need to wear comfortable clothes and shoes for activities and bring with them ... their passion and urge for experimentation!
This workshop is offered as part of the "It could be you- it could be me" project, organized by the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network in collaboration with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Greece.

Vocal Shelf-awareness
Anastasia Koulaloglou

A 3 hours workshop. Monday 28/8/2017, 17:30-20:30
Language: greek, english

The purpose of “Phonitiki Psychognosia” (Vocal Shelf-awareness) is the discovery of the personal, authentic voice which we have had since childhood so that sound, speech and song will form again a source of joy and creativity. The method is inspired mainly by Roy Hart’s principles and is enriched from basic elements of theatrical anthropology that was founded by Jerzy Grotowski. The workshop introduces ways and methods of the Chinese and Hindu traditions in sound and energy centers, whose task is a more spiritual approach to song, speech and communication. In practice it has been shown that the use of calm breathing exercises for the liberation of the respiratory system leads to a calmer nervous system. Further, the use of specific sounds or mantras leads to a feeling of safety and it might be a way for the student to get in contact with his/her inner feelings. All this leads to the enfolding of the individuals’ creative capabilities, while courage and self confidence are empowered at the same time. Discover the creative power of your hidden voice through sound, speech and singing exercises!
Bring a song or small text of your choice.

"Bringing a text to life through video"
Mary Kaldi

A 3 hours workshop. Sunday 27/8/2017, 17:30-20:30
Language: greek, english

In this workshop we will learn how to make a video with the aim of animating a certain text. Initially, theatrical exercises will take place, in order to get the participants acquainted, but also to help them feel released in front of the camera. Then, we will study the phases of creating a video, with emphasis on how to use different angles to record properly a narrator reading a text. At the same time, we will investigate which other elements can complement the framing of the narrative, so that it is not monotonous. Elements, such as images or videos that visualize the text and the appropriate music. Finally, basic editing techniques will be explained using a specific video editor (Powerdirector).
Our starting point will be “Monologues from the Aegean”. Participants may come having already chosen a text from the testimonies, so that we can use it as the basis for our video. They can also bring with them music they see suitable as the accompaniment of the video.
Camcorders, cameras and mobile phones would be very useful. If any of the participants could bring a laptop with them, the editing work can be speeded up.

“Why bats hang upside down?”
Eirini Marna, drama teacher
A 3 hours workshop. Sunday 27/8/2017, 17:30-20:30
Language: Greek

Using the Sudanese folktale “Why bats hang upside down” participants will explore the issue of diversity. Within the protective framework of Drama in Education they will recognize how they perceive the role of the weak and isolated, due to some external characteristics and how their perception could be reconstructed. Through their participation, they will also be given the opportunity to change preconceived roles and empower the hero who is in this unfavorable position.
This workshop is offered as part of the "It could be you- it could be me" project, organized by the Hellenic Theatre/Drama and Education Network in collaboration with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Greece.

Revolution Slogans: civil rights, human rights and… ways to acquire them.
Georgina Kakoudaki, director /theatre pedagogue

A 6hour workshop
Sunday 27 & Monday 28/8/2017, 17:30-20:30

Language: greek


A theatre workshop inspired by the way with which civil and human rights have been declared and promoted by the people over the centuries. In this workshop we will seek new ways to make a statement, to say our opinion privately or publicly, through theatre and theatre pedagogic methods, the use of biography and the ‘’staged’’ recollection of "heroic times". From the famous words of Enlightment to the graffiti messages on city walls, whether provocative, encoded, public or private, these messages can remind us the victories or the defeats of peoples' struggle throughout the history of humanity.
In this workshop we will also try another way to approach Public celebrations and memorial dates in school class, and through school theatre, to talk about heroism in non heroic times.

"Following the boy with the suitcase"
Giouli Douvou, drama teacher
A 3 hours workshop. Monday 28/8/2017, 17:30-20:30
Language: greek

Using Mike Kennye's excellent play, "Boy with a Suitcase", we create a drama workshop, which aims to make participants express own thoughts and to explore the views of others, through interaction, without emphasizing on acting skills. We wish to strengthen the initiative, to develop imagination and to be able to process the social issue of refugees in such a way so that it will concern us. We hope for emotional engagement and empathy. We will use theatrical games, exercises of activation, coaching, rhythm, fantasy, dynamic images, body expression, pantomime, role playing, status exercises, improvisations, dramatization and forum theater techniques.
This workshop is offered as part of the"It could be you- it could be me" project, organized by the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network in collaboration with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Greece.
