MKT #8 – Workshop: Divergent Dreams

Since 2018, our series „Macht Kritisch(es) Theater“ has opened the stage for
structural reflections on power relations in theater companies. The past panel discussions and workshops of the series brought up topics such as social exclusivity, the anti-racism clause, and, pandemic-related, the resonances of theater and digital space.

In the grip of regimes and their eugenic dreams, lives are constrained in what they can dare to demand. Yet, is it even appropriate to dream under such constraints? The impossibility of dreaming morphs into a complete absence of dreams. How, then, can we uncover a hope amidst the backdrop of ongoing wars, genocides, ecocides, climate change, and the rise of fascisms? Who possesses the right to dream? What are the subjects of these dreams? Which dreams continue eugenic ideologies?

Regimes exert control over the dreaming. However, dissident human and non-human lives veer away from this imposed reality. Their bodies and minds diverge and resist.

During the workshop, we will share our practices of divergences and research around it. You are kindly invited to share your practices in a way that feels comfortable for you as well. Together, we will observe how they transform and influence our dreams. We will explore and share gaps in our personal and collective remembrance. 

To register for the workshop, please fill in the Workshop Form until May 6th. The workshop runs for 2 days. No tickets are necessary and the workshop is free of charge.
