Projects regarding diversity, mobility and migration
Of the season 2017/18
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. This season, we are inviting artists from Damascus, Syria to join our team as part of the Open Border Ensemble and engage with the cultural life of the city for at least ten months. Their experiences will be at the core of two productions: one by the German director Jessica Glause and another by the Argentinian director Lola Arias. They will map new emotional geographies and challenge the labelled roles imposed on artists coming from countries in war. Within the current context of crises, migration, exile and violence, the aim is to forge a new experiential collaborative path by resisting borders and artist(ic) isolation. This project initiates a transnational theatre, giving space to different narratives from cultural and socio-political contexts to emerge, be shared and negotiated in the democratic, open, and analytical setting theatre offers.
No spaces, no place
empowerment workshop for Black women and women of color
25th of November 2018, 3pm - 6pm
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.

Whereever the mobile stage of the Open Border Ensemble will set foot, it
is accompanied by a series of workshops, organised by Kammer 4 You and
Bellevue di Monaco.
In line with exploring new geographies and belongings, these workshops offer residents, newcomers, children and adults the possibility to engage in an artistic practice. They invite us to reflect on the meanings of cities, mobilty, trajectories, diversity and migration in today's world using different approaches from theatre making via photography to singing. An opportunity to explore and strengthen what relates us all as world city-zens.
