Scenic writing with Christian Schönfelder

  • Literature, Program for children, Workshop

A creative crash course in the world of fairy tales, myths and legends – the old ones, but also the ones of today and even those we don’t even know yet. What kind of mythical stories does it take to understand our world?
Writing, painting and playing, the pupils encounter heroines of yesteryear such as Odysseus. Or they invent new ones that help them to find their way in the world.

Especially for 4th to 6th grades, maximum 4 hours including breaks.

Christian Schönfelder has been dramaturg at the Junges Ensemble Stuttgart since 2006. Before that he was dramaturg at zwinger3 in Heidelberg and Schnawwl in Mannheim, among others.

Schönfelder writes for children’s theatre: his play “Mein Bruder, der Räuber Kneißl” (My Brother, the Robber Kneißl) was shortlisted for the German Children’s Theatre Prize 2014. His most recent world premiere was “Artus!” at the open-air theatre in Altusried. For “Bergkristall” based on Adalbert Stifter, he was awarded the Dutch-German Children’s and Youth Dramatist Prize. He is also a lecturer at the Stuttgart Drama School.
