Viewing the constantly growing challenges in everyday life and society, many people feel paralyzed from time to time. 

Despite all these obstacles and inhibitions, we should preserve and strengthen our ability to move and stay in motion. We are living in a world where the future generation – committing to sustainability and to be mobile and flexible – take the risk that the courage to find and stand up for one’s own positions will be compromised.

Our approach to the new demands on society is based on the desire to start independent processes of thought and action. This is a general requirement, and, of course, has to be pursued in drama/theatre work.

With the means of theatre, those who are moving (physically, mentally and emotionally) and those who want to stay in motion help themselves and their audience to a courageous togetherness of internalisation and reflection.
