Theaterarbeit

Von 1986 bis 1993 habe ich im 'Instituut voor Theateronderzoek' in Amsterdam Theater eigenes Theater entwickelt. Für das erste Stück Karneval - das weisse Gesicht wurden mir zwei Fasen gewährt. In der zweiten Fase haben wir das Stück Hilvarenbeek, Utrecht, Dordrecht, Bochum und Amsterdam gebracht. 1993 habe ich es in der Kulturbrauerei in Berlin, parallel zu der Ausstellung meiner Zeichnungen von unterwegs nach der Wende, zum letzten Mal gespielt.
Das zweite Stück Luna konnten wir nur vorbereiten.

Mit Strassenkindern aus ihrem Leben Theater machen
information in English
Im August 2005 habe ich angefangen mit den Kindern und Jugendlichen der Strasse, die bei Generación in Lima unterkommen, aus ihrem Leben Theater zu machen: 'Nana de la calle' (Wiegenlied der Strasse). Das Stück ging am 1. September 2005 in Premiere. Während des zweiten 'Weltkongresses über die Rechte von Kindern und Jugendlichen', der vom 21. bis 25. November 2005 in Lima gehalten wurde, spielten wir es wieder.
2006 haben wir angefangen das Stück als Oper zu bringen, (Wiegenlied der Strasse oder die Strassenkinderoper). Pemiere war am 6. Oktober in der 'Universidad Nacional Major de San Marcos', die zweite war am 7. Oktober in der 'Universidad Católica', die dritte, am 8. Oktober im spanischen Kulturzentrum. 2008 haben wir eine Aufklärungskampagne für Schüler höhere Schulen in Lima gestartet. Jetzt denken wir an eine Akademie der Strasse, für Kinder und Jugendliche der Strasse.
Das Projekt wird von der Stiftung Bruno Schulz Institut unterstützt.
Seit 2012 unterstützt uns Johannes van Rooij.
