HS 4.203 (Unipark) Workshop „Pitch'n'Storytelling“
(Career Center)

"Stellen Sie sich vor, Sie können in 30 Sekunden erklären, was Sie beruflich machen; Sie halten eine Präsentation und Ihren KollegInnen und potentiellen AuftraggeberInnen staunen vor Neugierde. Stellen Sie sich vor, Sie schaffen es Ihre Kunden zu verstehen und ihren Bedarf zu erfüllen.   Das menschliche Gehirn merkt sich Inhalte am besten in Form von emotionalen Bildern und authentischen Geschichten. Geschichten verleihen jedem Sachverhalt Bedeutung und Sinn, stellen eine persönliche Verbindung zu ZuhörerInnen her und involvieren diese. Merk-würdige Geschichten ermöglichen Wissenstransfer und erleichtern Ihre Akquise.   Der Workshop vermittelt Werkzeuge mit deren Hilfe Sie Inhalte strukturieren, in einen Kontext setzen und damit wirkungsvoll kommunizieren. Diese Werkzeuge sind für jede Situation und jeden Inhalt anwendbar."

HS 4.203 (Unipark) Close to Home: Documentary and Autobiographical Elements in Contemporary British Plays about the Housing Crisis
(Guest lecture Aarhus Institute for Advanced Studies, Universität Aarhus, Dänemark)

"Plays about the housing crisis are interesting test cases for discussing the political potential of theatre in the contemporary medial environment. Being centred on the home, such plays explode the distinction between the private and the political, highlighting how the apparently personal sphere of the domestic is shaped by economic, social and political conflicts and interests. In my talk, I am going to focus on the prominent role of documentary and autobiographical elements – for example in the popular contemporary genre of the verbatim play – in engaging pressing issues such as gentrification, homelessness and social housing policy. I will argue that such ‘dramaturgies of the real’ (Carol Martin) are used both to reflect on the state of early 21st-century British society, and on the specific contribution the theatre can make in analysing and critiquing this state. We will look at examples such as Nadia Fall’s Home (2014), LUNG’s E 15 (2014) and Sh!t Theatre’s Letters to Windsor House (2016) to discuss how playwrights and theatre practitioners put the housing crisis on stage and seek to address their own, and also the audience’s, implications in the crisis."

HS 4.203 (Unipark) Theory session

"Kulturtheorien haben in den letzten Jahren zunehmend materiale und ästhetische Aspekte aufgenommen und theoretisch ausgearbeitet. Der Text 'Aesthetics' von Alexandra Grieser (Trinity College, Dublin) ist eine sehr gute Übersicht über Fragestellungen und Konzepte, die in diesem Zusammenhang für den Gegenstandsbereich Religion als Teil von Kultur entwickelt wurden. Gemeinsame Lektüre und Anwendung auf eigene Gegenstände: Von welchen Perspektiven und Begriffen kann ich für meine Arbeit profitieren?"
