This day was a really interesting day for us. We learn a lot of methods about impro theatre, and we act… a lot!
First of all, Kyriakos, our participant from Greece, organized a workshop in the Open Space about Impro Theatre.
He teached us many methods and games about this topic, very useful to work with refugees, migrants, children…
This day, was a sunny sunny day!
In the afternoon, we had the visit of Myrthe, expert in theatre. Her workshops was really inspiring!
We started to prepare a performance for the next day in Museumplain and Vondelpark. This one, using Invisible Theatre Method.
A really motivating day!!!
As a starting point for a collection of theatre methods, here are some links and descriptions:

“The “World Café” is a structured conversational process intended to facilitate open and intimate discussion, and link ideas within a larger group to access the “collective intelligence” or collective wisdom in the room. […] the focus is on exploring and innovating on themes rather than on problem-solving.The format is principally designed as a forum for creative or open thinking and is not suited to scenarios where there is a predetermined answer or solution.” (
