The public discussions in the Sophiensaelen continue the hundred year long tradition of this space as a meeting place: artists and the public meet here to discuss together. At the long table adorned with wine and savory snacks it’s time for questions and answers, exchanges and getting to know one another, discussions and derivations, observations, insults and perspectives.
INTRODUCTIONS TO DANCE PRODUCTIONS
In one-hour long introductions before the start of a performance we address the production of the evening: through background material about the theater piece and the artists, about the genre and current artistic developments, through playful examinations of the themes and working methods of the play and through exchanges about the interesting and the dubious. The introductory talks are lead in cooperation with TANZSCOUT BERILN, the dance agency team for Berlin dramaturges and dancers. Current dates can be found on our calendar.

INTRODUCTORY VISITS AND WORKSHOPS FOR GROUPS, TRAINING FOR TEACHERS
To bring contemporary theater closer to young students, we offer introductory visits for school classes and courses including introductions and/or discussions with the artists. Upon request we can also organize production related workshops with directors, choreographers and drama teachers.
We also offer regular production workshops and training events for teachers. Here the participants receive deep insight into the current questions and artistic approaches in the performing arts. They explore how and in what ways these can be enriching and applicable for stage work with children, youth and adults. Participants test out ideas and methods for the preparation and follow-up of dance and theater visits with students. The training sessions for teachers are carried out in cooperation with Tanzscout Berlin (dance/performance) and Ursula Jenni (theater/performance).
The Sophiensæle info newsletter provides regular information about the program and available offers.
