TUSCH Festival: ETB | IPAC and Carl-Bosch-Schule present SHAPE UP!

We have been participating in the TUSCH program – TUSCH stands for Theater und Schule – since 2002 and within that time frame developed and devised productions and projects with seven different schools.

Since 2016 our partner school is the CARL-BOSCH-SCHULE in Hersmdorf. For this year´s TUSCH festival drama educator Minna Partanen, her team and a number of students from the school created a new show called SHAPE UP! to be performed at Podewil on Friday March 15th at 1pm

SHAPE UP!  Kommt es dir vor, als ob die Welt sich zu schnell dreht? Hast du Angst, dass du nicht deinen Platz im Leben findest? Es ist an der Zeit, dein bestmögliches Leben zu leben. Gestatte uns, dein inneres Potential zu entfesseln. Ein spekulativer Blick auf eine (un)behagliche Zukunft. | In englischer Sprache | Leitung: Minna Partanen, Brea Robertson, Jacqueline Beie, Mareike Dittmer, Fritzi Steglich, Benedikt Wahls
