Music theater projects – Intercultural exchange projects
should give the possibility to children, through a combination of theater and music, to exprerience a new representation level, which allows them to illustrate their own culture and strenghens their self-confidence. Mostly, the common artistic work helps them to empathize with other’s life, and so demands acceptance, tolerance and openness towards new cultures.
If possible, it is for us very important to allow youths with different cultural backgrounds to get to know each other through exchange programs.Until now we were able to build exchange programs in music theater area and youth orchestras.
Since fall 2016, pupils from the Waldorf school Rosenheim and the Diyar Dance Theatres Bethlehem work on a next common music theater project. Under the title “Letters from…..”, they will adapt letters they exchanged with youths from all over the world into a music theater play.
The representations will take place in June 2017 in Palestine, and on July 14th in König-Ludwigsaal in Prien am Chiemsee.
