Programme Monday 6 March
We opened in the Danstheater with a full house of students with a speech of Anthony Heidweiller and by Annika, student Theatre Directing and Wastelands think tank.
Her tagline:” this week is by us for us and about us”.
There were separate meetings in 23 small groups getting to know each other a bit better, the students made a symbol and attached it to the WL wall in the hall.
Aminata Cairo was present in the afternoon in an interactive two hours with all students: singing, dancing, giving it meaning to relate, to connect, no one needs to be alone. Beautiful music, ending with students in groups writing their lyrics to a song and “the blues”.
The students created four rooms: a quiet room, a swap room, a game room, an improvisation room .
