Projects regarding diversity, mobility and migration
Of the season 2018/19
For years, the Münchner Kammerspiele have been collaborating extensively with theatre directors and teams from all over the world, investing in diversity and broadening cultural and aesthetic discourses. In 2017/2018 Season, we have invited performers from Syria and other artists to join our team as part of the Open Border Ensemble. Their experiences were at the core of Miunikh-Damaskus, a mobile theatre play by German director Jessica Glause and What They Want To Hear by Argentinian director Lola Arias and on-site project X-Shared Spaces. They extended the permanent ensemble of the Münchner Kammerspeile to include new aesthetic perspectives negotiated in the democratic, open, and analytical setting theatre offers as well as engaging with the cultural life of the city and the theatre. For the 2018-2019 season, their engagement will continue throughout different inclusive aspects of the new performances of the Münchner Kammerspiele. They will go in search of new stories, contributing to shaping new formats and theatrical languages towards a transnational theatre that curves a space for various narratives from foreign cultural and socio-political contexts. Against a backdrop of crises migration, exile and violence worldwide, The ensemble wants to open up new collaborative paths and oppose artistic isolation.
SAFE PLACE AND THEATRE
Theatre workshop for PoC / People of Color
12th July 2019, 1 pm - 5 pm
In this workshop, we want to explore in a "safe space" for PoC
the joy of playing. We want to discover freshly the body, the space and
the interaction between us. With old and new excercises we want to fall
deeply into the world of a theatrical enviroment and the power of performing identity. For professionals and non-professionals.
(Please bring warm and comfortable clothes - we will move around.)

When enough is enough
Description: The word diversity has become trendy even in Germany. But most people mean, specifically, gender diversity when they refer to diversity. As Black women and women of color our specific experiences are, however, not fully encompassed when speaking about gender diversity. Not even when speaking of racism. The lack of an understanding of how our intersecting identities (ability, age, gender, race, sexuality, etc.) affect how we are perceived can be the source of great strain and stress at our workplaces.
"Minor" offences, such as unwanted attention or unsolicited commentary, as well as outright bullying are a part of our daily experiences at work. We encounter conflict with direct reports, peers and supervisors. In this workshop, we will discuss tools and strategies of approaching workplace harassment. You will have the opportunity to discuss real life challenges with which you are confronted at work as well as how to set, communicate and enforce boundaries. Sexist and racist behavior are common at work, but that doesn't mean we don't have a choice in confronting it.
Please respect that this workshop is a safer space specifically for Black women and women of colour.

empowerment workshop for Black women and women of color
25th November 2018, 3 pm - 6 pm
with Dr. Stacie CC Graham
The word diversity has become trendy even in Germany. But most
people mean, specifically, gender diversity when they refer to
diversity. As Black women and women of color our specific experiences
are, however, not fully encompassed when speaking about
gender diversity. Not even when speaking of racism. The lack of an
understanding of how our intersecting identities (ability, age, gender,
race, sexuality, etc.) affect how we are perceived and move through the
world can often lead to feelings of isolation,
hopelessness and despair.
With this workshop we seek to create a space in which participants have the opportunity to exchange with one another, to be heard and seen. Women will leave with a battery of strategies and tangible resources to support them in more confidently negotiating and commanding everyday situations in private as well as in the workplace. And perhaps participants will build new much-needed friendships too.
