MEET THE PLATYPUS ACTORS IN A WORKSHOP AND ENJOY DRAMA, GAMES AND DISCUSSIONS!
The workshop raises awareness about the importance of developing informed opinions: What motivates me to become politically active? What motivates me to act? How can I develop the courage and strength to voice my own opinion? The workshop will encourage the students to express their opinions, to explore different perspectives and to develop empathy for one another. It involves your students in theatre exercises and games, giving them the opportunity to create short performances about topics that the students feel passionate about. The workshop will be held in English and is suitable for year 10-13.

OUR LATEST PRODUCTION FEATURES THE SAME THEMES AS THE WORKSHOP «POWER TO THE PEOPLE»

Safestay Hostel A play about national identity, politics and change: London 2026. A Government with autocratic tendencies is in power. New laws affecting taxes and immigration have been passed in parliament. A young woman who grew up in Great Britain but who is a German passport holder, a Brazilian activist and an Australian influencer meet in Safestay Hostel. The new laws are making life difficult for the Finnish owner and the guests. The Brazilian woman wants to take to the streets and demonstrate, the young woman who grew up in Great Britain is afraid, the influencer is indifferent and the Finnish owner wants to avoid trouble in her hostel. The populist prime minister is threatening the foundations of democracy and by banning the “We wonʼt leave” demonstration is violating the right of free speech.
