First meeting between the children and young people of the Drama Control and the actors from the Bochum ensemble

The newly formed „matches of the season“ between the children and young people of Drama Control and the actors from the Bochum ensemble met for the first time on Saturday, 31 October 2020. With the concept of „matches of the season“, the Junges Schauspielhaus and the Schauspielhaus Bochum wanted to bring together different generations to create a dialogue and exchange of experiences between the people who are already active in the theatre world today and the people who will shape this world later. The 15 members of the Drama Control, the supervisory board of the recently opened Theaterrevier, will meet regularly with the actors from the Bochum ensemble during the season. The Drammies will be able to attend rehearsals and gain an insight into the acting life. On the other hand, the actors are invited to get involved in the everyday life of their new protégés, e.g. through joint school visits – if the corona restrictions will allow it.

The children and young people of the Drama Control spent their first afternoon with the actors of the ensemble last Saturday. Groups of two to three people were formed and got to know each other for the first time on a tour through the Schauspielhaus. Together they could walk through the scene on the main stage, stroll in the dressing rooms and chat over a waffle in the canteen.

The day ended with a collective and artistic action that decorated the Schauspielhaus‘ forecourt with messages that were thought out, developed and painted on the asphalt, together in the groups. It was very important to the groups to write und draw hopeful statements in these difficult times. After a last throwing of paper planes, the „matches of the season“ said goodbye - at least for now - with the promise that they will see each other again very soon!
