Theatre Festival in Terezin

23 March 2018

Last week a group of secondary students went to a theatre festival organised by ISTA, an organisation which celebrates theatre, art and tries to bring together student from all over the world. I was fortunate enough to be a part of this experience.

During our stay in Terezin we looked at the impact of historical events on art. How oppression and terror can be explored and used as stimuli for artistic expression. I really enjoyed the experience because it made me realise certain links with modern day context, for example  the controversial talks regarding migrants and scapegoating a minority groups. 

Personally the most interesting part of our journey was meeting a survivor of the Terezin ghetto during the Nazi occupation. Hearing Doris talk about her experience as a young teen growing up in hard circumstances resonated with us. Towards the end of our stay we have performed several movement pieces, theatre sketches and produced art installations that were created in the response to the events that happened in Terezin during the second world war. Being able to work  with professional artists and students from different cultural backgrounds had created a great atmosphere to work in. I hope a similar event will be organised next year.
