"WOODBEAT“ on tour – intensive encounter with India

This autumn and winter, HELIOS Theater is seeking intensive exchange with colleagues from India.

In October, “WOODBEAT” was touring through four different Indian cities: the performance for everybody 2 years + played in Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata.

After the performances, the tour turned into a rehearsal period: In Kolkata, puppeteer Sanyukta Saha and musician Rajat Mallick have developed their own version of “WOODBEAT” together with Michael Lurse and Marko Werner. The play is the first in the repertoire of the arts & culture initative ThinkArts.

The tour and rehearsal process were supported by Goethe Institut New Delhi.

In 2015, HELIOS Theater toured through several cities in India and other South Asian countries. The tour was then connected to a workshop by Director Barbara Kölling in New Delhi and Hyderabad. Out of the contacts that were established then, a new project was developed: In December and January, Barbara Kölling and Anna-Sophia Zimniak will travel to New Delhi to facilitate the creation of shows for children in their early years.

The mentoring program is supported by the European Union via the networking project “small size – wide eyes”.
