I in We - Individual and Network Resources for Satisfactory Work in Collectives A Workshop for Women* PART 1/2

Workshop with Janne Harnischfeger (psychologist) and Esther Vorwerk (theater maker)

Language: German, questions can also be asked in English
Access: This event will take place online, access to it will be provided upon registration.
Please note: 2 dates. The number of participants is limited.

How do we want to work? What structures do we need in order to flourish and express ourselves artistically as best as possible? How can we create these ourselves and communicate our needs and limits to the outside world? As female artist working in the independent performing arts community, we are all too familiar with the collision of artistic visions, conflicts in work groups and the personal challenges of everyday life. For women working within a patriarchal system, these conflicts are often intensified and made more complicated.

This workshop will use the “forced break” of the recent months that we have all experienced to create a shared space for an exchange of experiences. Approaching from two directions, one artistic and the other based in psychology and experience, we will come closer to the emotional and practical challenges that women are confronted within in the independent performing arts community.

We will conduct exercises to experiment and get to know each other better.

In the first part of the workshop, Esther Vorwerk will combine body-oriented, scenic approaches to specific memories/experiences of working in the independent performing arts community. This will result in opportunities to discuss the needs that can arise over the course of exchanges.

In the second part of the workshop, methods will be learned with Janne Harnischfeger that present a comprehensive image of one’s own personal and professional resources and which provide an overview of one’s own network of social contacts. A special form of a one-on-one conversation will help to specifically formulate and set a goal. In order to connect both phases within the group, we will lead the entire workshop together. By registering, you are committing to participating on both days of the workshop.


* (Women* = our goal is to integrate intersexual, queer and transsexual perspectives. If you feel excluded or discriminated against, please let us know. We are committed to learning and improving ourselves.)
