Theatergruppe Babylon: Nasrin oder Die Kunst zu träumen von Herbert Asmodi (2010/11)
The international Drama Club “Babylon” at the University of Regensburg offers the opportunity to work on a theatre project to international students, staff of the university with any other language than German as mother tongue and to German students who study Teaching German as a Foreign Language. The ensemble is renewed every year and works for two terms on putting a literary text (by a German-speaking author) on stage. In the academic year 2010/11 the play “Nasrin oder Die Kunst zu träumen” (Nasrin or The Art of Dreaming) was chosen and presented to an audience of more than 600 people in five performances. People from more than 15 nations participate in the drama club which makes the project also a laboratory for intercultural communication. Apart from a comprehensive linguistic learning experience through the adaptation and implementation of the text in terms of acting and language use, the participants’ ability to cooperate and work in a team is fostered.
