Suggesting a topic and based on improvisation and brainstorming by the children I wrote plays, which were performed at the end of session.
2014 - 2016Events World Book Day, Lehmanns Buchhandlung Leipzig, 4th/5th form
After reading from a Children's book I invited the pupils with different games to get on traces of the protagonists of the respective stories.
Whether linguistically, literarily, by acting or dancing – the base of my work with children and youths are they themselves. What are they interested in? What are their stories, questions, problems and views? For me personally virtues like respect, reliability and (appropriate!) ambition are basic requirements for working together and having fun. Furthermore while teaching skills like teamwork, listening, appearing self-confidently, imagination, musicality, sense of rhythm, linguistic and physical expression I always try to create results as sophisticated as possible according to the skills and ambitions of the participants.
