Bibliodrama workshop leaders and programmes:

 

1. Agnes Bouwen, Belgium and Burkhard Geese, Germany

In the shadow (or the light) of the prophet

In the footsteps of the exiles going home

We wander

Trough time and space

Trough town and nature

And we wonder looking  for that special

Everlasting sign

That keeps on calling me/ you/ us… to go on …

„Elements of our work will be Bodywork, Encounter and Play in roles and scenes, Updating and Actualization, Dance and Singing, Creative methods“

 

2. Krysztyna Sztuka, Poland and Eckhard Frick SJ, Germany

Structur of activities: Puls. Warming - Up. Exercises in the group-integration. Confrontation with the text of Isajah (reading for himsellfs and then in pairs and looking for associations with onather biblical stories).  Each pairs chois "own story" and built a viniete. The whole group work with the chosen part of text in the biblical psychodrama. Feedback on the roles. Final sharing and recapitulation of process. 

 

3. Dóra Falvay, Hungary and Ingeborg Swanhild Fink, Germany

"You are invited: come and taste a bit of life!

In our workshop we will explore the different questions raised in the text -

What do I thirst for? What does it cost me? Where am I invited? What are these thoughts that are not mine? How high are they above me? What are these strange plants that are growing on my path of life? 

On our exploring journey we will use different kinds of body work and play. In an individual process we will trace our steps through the text with creative methods and hopefully surprize ourselves with the result."

 

 

Excursion (begining at 1:00 P.M, on 29th of August):
