Workshop: Collective playwriting || Documentary Theater || Working Changes
An independently organized event
This event is a playwriting workshop in which participants will learn to develop a text based on personal experiences drawn from their work/work-related issues/dreams for their work. We will explore concepts such as memory, desire, change and propaganda. We will use the tools of documentary theatre: interviews, storytelling, fictionalization and research, in an attempt to democratize art and make artistic practices accessible to all.
This workshop is part of the documentary theatre project „Working Changes”, initiated by Ani Mărincean. This process of playwriting is based on interviews, workshops and gathering collective imaginaries around the subject of work. The final product aims to be a collectively-produced theatre show – participants at this workshop can join the process if they feel like.
THE WORKSHOP WILL TAKE PLACE:
28–29th of September
11:00 – 18:00 both days (food and breaks will be included)
andrymi, Bergþórugata 20, RKV

The workshop will be held in English, but if needed, translation will be managed on the spot.
Theatre that moves me most is one that speaks about our society in courageous ways. I believe that all theatre is political. All art is political. I propose to get to know political theatre, documentary theatre and theatre based on personal his/her/their-stories while writing texts out of our own experiences, and to use the stage as our public square.
Andrými is currently not accessible to wheelchairs, and challenging to access for people who have difficulties going up steps.
There is a step before the garden gate and then 5 steps leading to the main entrance, each 17 cm high, door widths in the building vary between 50 cm (upstairs washroom door) and 80 cm (entrance door).
The washrooms are so far only on the upper floor and in the basement. The door to the meeting room is 75 cm wide (as most other doors in the building). The event takes place on the ground floor. There is no bathroom on the ground floor.
Both washrooms in the building are gender neutral. Pronoun badges are available.
Ani Mărincean (Cluj Napoca, Romania, 1989) is a cultural worker, artist, activist and theoretician, addressing subjects which stand at the intersection of art and socio-political concerns. She is interested in the collective representations of today’s society, the different approaches which come from the margins of society with a focus on critical reflection of the past and future. Across these subjects, the role of the artist in today’s society is always questioned and challenged.
