The main focus is to create our own short theatre play and experience how much fun acting, dancing and playing can be in a group of great variety. We will include young (international and national) people with fewer opportunities and have the support of professional theatre pedagogues, who will teach us exercises and give us instructions. The theatre sessions include the recognition and use of natural tools (body, voice, and space) and the development of potential skills (concentration, imagination, memory, expression, and creativity). You will be involved in a dynamic theatrical process and at the end of the camp, we will perform your self-created play.
There is no need for any theatrical knowledge in advance, but your motivation and willingness for acting is important because the theatre sessions are creative and artistic practices and your input is needed.
Accommodation: We will be hosted in Vienna at the Home of the “Scout Group 78th”.
Things to bring: You need to bring with you a sleeping bag and mats (we will sleep on the floor), working clothes, working shoes, raincoat, swimming suit, sun protection. If you require any medications (e.g. because of an allergy), don’t forget to bring them with you.
Food: We will cook for ourselves. Please inform us whether you require a special diet or are vegetarian. Your accommodation and food are covered – however, we recommend you to bring some pocket money: The currency used in Austria is Euros. Furthermore, we invite you to bring typical food, spices, drinks, games, and music from your country (for an intercultural evening) – and a lot of motivation!
Vienna is the biggest city in Austria and it´s better known for its hight quality of life, its amayzing museums, and for being the of the most important music centres in the world.
Grenzenlos is hosting this project.
Insurance: During the international camp we will only have insurance for accidents. Nevertheless, you need a full insurance (medical) for your travel and the time in Austria; don’t forget to arrange your insurance prior to your departure!
Team-volunteering: This camp is part of the new Team Volunteering Program of the European Solidarity Corps. We will have10 funded places. In order to include also non-programme countries and volunteers over 30, we’ll keep 2 places open for regular camp volunteers.
