Exploring Process Drama

drama & spa

In diesem zweitägigen Workshop werden wir uns mit der theatralen Form „Process Drama“ beschäftigen und wie diese im (Fremdsprachen-)unterricht eingesetzt werden kann. Sprache der beiden Process Dramas am Samstag ist Englisch, am Sonntagnachmittag kann bei Interesse ein weiteres Process Drama auf Deutsch oder Englisch stattfinden. Die Gruppenarbeiten können auf Englisch oder Deutsch durchgeführt werden (ggf. auch andere Sprachen, wenn genug Teilnehmer mit dieser Sprache da sind).

Participants will experience two process dramas (one longer, one shorter) on Saturday. These will have a different focus (e.g. one based on a literary text, one with a cultural focus) and at the end of this part of the workshops participants will have the chance to ask questions and reflect on what they have learned.

In the second part of the workshop the participants will start to develop their own process dramas in 2-3 smaller groups, grouped either according to target language or topic focus. Saturday’s workshop leaders will coach them in this process.

For a refreshing break on Saturday evening we’ll visit Konstanz‘ lakeside spa (optional).

On Sunday, the groups will finalize their plans and try out elements of their process drama with the rest of the group, followed by a plenary with questions and feedback. A final reflection of the two days wraps up the workshop. Optionally, participants can take part in an additional shorter process drama with a focus on language structures on Sunday afternoon.
