Performance and Workshop

09-11 February 2004

in co-operation with Amani People's Theatre, Kenya and The Mothertongue Project, South Africa

How can theatre be used as a means of constructively waging conflicts and in transforming them? What role can theatre as a creative medium play in an emerging, internationally challenging conception of peace education? During the conference Meike Herminghausen and Sruti Bala from sabisa collaborated with Awino Okech from the Kenyan Amani People's Theatre and Sara Matchett from The Mothertongue Project, Cape Town, to create a performance based on a Kenyan myth, which allowed the audience to participate in finding creative solutions and ways of dealing with the crisis of the performance. The methods and approach used were discussed and presented in detail during a workshop o conflict transformation through theatre.
