„Anfall und Ente“ – SPIELPLATZ und ‚Nah dran!‘ Zwei Premieren am Bodensee

 

_DSC3228Am letzten Sonntag, dem 7. Mai 2017, war das Theater Konstanz ganz auf Kindertheater gepolt. Um 15.00 Uhr fand am Jungen Theater die Uraufführung „Anfall und Ente“ der Hamburger Autorin Sigrid Behrens statt. Das Stück entstand dank der Förderung durch das ‚Nah dran!‘ Projekt in Zusammenarbeit zwischen der Autorin und dem Theater. Diese Zusammenarbeit wurde 2015 von Sarah Wiederhold, damalige Leiterin des Jungen Theaters, initiiert  und von Philipp Teich (Dramaturgie) und Ingo Putz (Regie) nun zur Premiere gebracht. Das Premierenpublikum jubelte! Textbücher gibt’s ab sofort beim Drei Masken Verlag in München. Ingo Putz stellte sich mit dieser ersten und gelungenen Inszenierung als neuer Leiter des Jungen Theater in Konstanz vor. Und dass “Anfall und Ente“ sich zeitgleich im Autorenwettbewerb des Heidelberger Stückemarktes befand (eines von 6 aus 92) setzte dem Stück und dieser für das Kindertheater neuen Autorin die Krone auf. „Anfall und Ente“ ist Sigrid Behrens erstes und gewiss nicht letztes Kinderstück.

Marta Gusniowska (Polish Contemporary Playwrights)

Marta Gusniowska © privatA Glance Around the Polish TYA 5

In Poland contemporary plays for children are well-known and often staged nowadays. As Polish TYA is closely related to puppet theatre many of the pieces are dedicated to perform with puppets. The most favored playwright is Marta Gusniowska, who writes original pieces as well as fairy tales’ adaptations. She deconstructs the schemes and characters of the fairy tales and her pieces are full of both linguistic humour and situational comedy. Language’s deconstruction is another feature of her playwriting. Although there are many linguistic games in Marta’s plays, some of them were translated into English, German and a couple of Slavic languages. The plays of Marta Gusniowska, which are also open for productions with actors, can be obtained by the agency Stowarzyszenie Autorów ZaiKS http://www.zaiks.org.pl/ .

Michael Ramløse (Dänemark) wird gefeiert: 40 Jahre Theater für junges Publikum, 20 Jahre Teatret Fair Play

01

Am 6. Januar 2017 hatte das Teatret Fair Play in Holbæk zum Abschiedsfest für Michael Ramløse eingeladen. Michael Ramløse ist nicht nur Theatermacher und Autor – seine Stücke werden aktuell in Aalen, Bielefeld, Fulda, Parchim und Saarbrücken gespielt –  sondern er war auch Generalsekretär der ASSITEJ International. Als Ehrenpräsident der ASSITEJ International gehörte Wolfgang Schneider zu den Gratulanten:

He must be a good fellow: Michael Ramløse!
This was my first thought, when I identified that Swedish mineral water was named after him.
My second impression was: He will be the next generation of ASSITEJ International. 1990, after the Cold War, building bridges, crossing borders, East And West, North And South.
And thirdly: With Michael Ramløsewere starting the new times, a new eara of professionalism and internationalism in the Association.
He was doing a great job as Secretary General, he was integrating artists from all over the world and he was bringing the artistic discussion on the agenda.
I remember emotional stories with him, dancing in the streets of Caracas with local artists and after to much Cuba Libre, singing on stage with Hope Azeda „Someting stupid“ in the framework of the Congress in Montreal, but also the verbal figths about the Yearbook, about TYA as Arts Education and criterias for artistic quality.
Now Michael Ramløseis one of the Elder Statesmen with expertise and competence and ASSITEJ should use these wisdom of diversity.
He is part of the international repertoire, in Germany his plays are again and again performed and part of the literature in TYA.
As Founding Director of the Kinder- und Jugendtheaterzentrum in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, as Honorary President of ASSITEJ International and as Chairman of ASSITEJ Germany I pay my great respect for the longlife contribution to Children, Young People and Theatre Arts.
In this times we need more „Fair Play“ – not only in the performing arts!
Finally: He is a good fellow: Michael Ramløse!

Zur Eröffnung des Kraftwerk Mitte in Dresden

 

Festlich wurde am Abend des 16. Dezember 2016 das Kraftwerk Mitte in Dresden eröffnet. Kaum zu glauben, dass alles pünktlich fertig geworden ist. Mit dem tjg. heater junge generation und der Staatsoperette sind zwei zentrale Kulturakteure der sächsischen Landeshauptstadt nun gemeinsam mitten in der Stadt verortet und produzieren Kunst als Energie für Stadt und Region. Der Hildesheimer Kulturwissenschaftler, Wolfgang Schneider, Vorsitzender der ASSITEJ, hielt den Festvortrag und sagte über die Darstellenden Künste als kulturpolitisches Kraftwerk, dass sie gerade diese Nähe zu ihrem Publikum brauchen. Zugleich skizzierte er, was es nach 25 Jahren Kraftwerk Mitte zu feiern geben könnte und sollte – mit dem entsprechenden kulturpolitischen Rückhalt: Weiterlesen

With Fire in the Head. A meeting about German dramaturgy for young adults

Z ogniem w głowie 2016 Titelseite des Programmheftes A Glance around Polish TYA 4

From the 18th to 22nd of October 2016 the second meeting about German dramaturgy for young adults  ‚Z ogniem w głowie‘ took place in the Dramatyczny Theatre in Wałbrzych. Both the presentations of the German plays and the speeches of the Polish and German guests were new and innovative. What I found most inspiring is the idea of plays written for youth which catch also the interest of adults. In Poland there are many plays written for adults which are appropriate for youngsters too. But the first option leads TYA to more democratic events for instance for a mixed-aged-audience – in contrast to shows whose main topic is addressed to children but also contains numerous subtexts for adults only.

What’s new? A meeting about theatre for young adults

Between the 14th and 17th October 2016 in the ‚Miniatura‘ Theatre in Gdańsk a professional meeting ‚What’s new?‘ (Co nowego?) took place. It was dedicated to contemporary theatre for young adults, which in Poland is mainly represented by a sort of ‚in-yer-face theatre‘. In addition to the presentations of the foreign and Polish performances, three round tables were organized. We discussed how German and Swiss artists deal with this topic and we confronted it with our Polish experiences. In our opinion also in Poland theatres should give young adults more opportunities to attend performances by themselves. For more read on: http://www.jugendtheater.net/en/poland/whatsnew
