Drag Kings on the making (Part 1) - 31.05.24, 6-9pm

In this workshop we are going to approach the performativity of gender through the art of drag. The art of Drag is the art of disobedience, rebellion and freedom. Born in the queer communities and inspired by pop culture, drag is a DIY transdisciplinary artistic practice. In the first part of the workshop we are going to explore the spectrum of maleness and experiment with masculinity. The participants will work on the creation of a drag king/ quing/creture character using a variety of methods such as creative writing, somatic expression and movement.

 

Drag Kings on the making (Part 2) - 01.06.24, 2-6pm

In the second part we are going deeper in our character, playing with make up techniques and preparing our own number. At the end of the workshop each participant has the chance to present a small performance (lip sync or other). It is time to create our own Drag Show and celebrate gender expression!

 

Gender Self-Awareness - 12.06.24, 6-9pm

A lively theater workshop around alternative, non-heteronormative gender roles and expressions. Through movement, play, and methods of Theater of the Oppressed, we will reflect on gender and take our bodies through a journey of discovery. Wanna join us?

 

Keep me safe(r) - 19.06.24, 6-9pm

A safe(r) space is a supportive, non-threatening physical and emotional environment, in which all participants feel free to express themselves and share experiences without fear of judgment or discrimination. The term safe(r) indicates that safety is relative: not everyone feels safe under the same conditions. The need to establish and maintain safe(r) spaces is often overlooked or underestimated. What makes each of us feel safe? How can we contribute collectively and individually to the creation and maintenance of safe(r) spaces? How is privilege relating to such processes? Let’s discover together!

 

Reversing the cis-male gaze - 26.06.24, 6-9pm

Theater and performative arts in general have been historically created and viewed through a western patriarchical lense. Using examples of well-known art, (paintings, film, images, dramatic text)  we explore the male gaze. How is femininity and masculinity being presented? Are we able to recognise the male gaze in this? During the workshop we will reproduce this artistic pieces from our perspective, creating a FLINTA* feminist gaze.

 

The workshop will be mainly held in English. Facilitators speak German and Greek too.

Have you experienced a loss that you feel is not processed?

Have you lost a favorite person? Have you had to leave your home? Has an important relationship come to an end? Have you said goodbye to ideas or dreams?

You are not alone.

In this workshop we want to talk about loss and grieve together: through creative methods such as painting and drawing, crafts, ceramics, movement, theater, improvisation and creative writing.

Gina Farrow, theater maker, and Dimitra Theodoridou, art therapist, will accompany a group of women* and feminities through this creative process.
