6 young people devoted themselves for 5 days of workshops, crafting and performing Forum theater performance “What democracy means for me?” at Haus International Landshut, Berlin 15-21.11. Scenes revolved around daily social situations and created characters illustrated personas that most strongly experience diversity in democratic society. Participants during workshops interviewed pass-by citizens to build real life situations, did a lot of group and individual research on the topic, worked on group dynamics.
In performance, audience could witness the absurdity of some bureaucratic realities, explore power positions, rethink of family structures. Through forum theater method scenes were deconstructed by audience and played again until there were common understanding of democratic approach taking place.
