Borger Scene @ Aarhus Teater

Following the example of Aalborg, and inspired by Dresden’s ‘Bürgerbühne’, Aarhus is using the Theatron network to establish a cititzen theater scene in its house.

Partners
Staatsschauspiel Dresden, DE (concept); Aarhus Teater, DK (adaptation)
Aims
Giving citizens their theatre scene
Description
The Borger Scene invites citizens to become the creators of their own, authentic theatre scene, working both with classics and creating their own material. It also provides a forum for the residents of Aarhus to explore different topics and skills through theatre.

Original Concept

Bürgerbühne Dresden

Buergerbuehne Dresden

Director: Miriam Tscholl • Dramaturgy & Production Management: David Benjamin Brückel • Theatre & School / Pedagogy: Bettina Seiler, Christiane Lehmann

During the last three seasons, about 1200 Dresden citizens of all ages have participated in the citizen’s theatre at the Staatsschauspiel Dresden. This fully recognised part of the artistic programme of the theatre has become nationally a recognised best practice model for engaging audiences and integrating the theatre in its community. Up to 5 production each season are created by a professional artistic team with the input of citizen actors. These are fully integrated in the theatre programme and played in repertory throughout the season.

It also provides a forum for the residents of Aarhus to explore different topics and skills through theater in weekly clubs and in individual events. The Borger Scene is going to be an important part of Aarhus Theatre’s daily life and artistic work.

At the moment, Aarhus Teater is recruiting a coordinator for its new Borger Scene. The first phase of development will begin in January 2014 and last to June 2015. More info in Danish
