General Notes on Workshops  

post theater generates workshops for various reasons, including their believe in sharing artistic, academic and other forms of experience amongst artists | on all career levels and including students of all disciplines. post theater believes that educational work should be part of a complete job profile for professional artists, since it allows artist a reflection of their own experiences gained in professional art practice.

There are no standard post theater workshops, as post theater intends to customize each workshop for a specific group of participants, a specific length and specific goals. post theater prefers site- and / or occasion-specific workshops with local artists. post theater strongly recommends workshops that aim at presenting a performance or installation at the end of the workshop to an audience.
Frequent topics in post theater workshops are: haptic media, site-specific-multi-media performances, over-all dramaturgy, spatial dramaturgy, documentary-based performance work, media-dance, media-environments | just to name a few of post theaterfs working methods that can be explored in post theater works.

In the case of gExpress Fight Clubh, the aim of the workshop is to create a new interpretation of the post theater performance by the same name. This has been done in Taiwan in 2009 and will be happening in Bulgaria in the Fall of 2010 again.

post theater prefers to conduct workshops for heterogenic groups of people with different artistic / professional / or other backgrounds. Often, the participants are performers, choreographers and media artists etc., but depending on the context, non artists and artists of other disciplines are welcome.
All post theater workshops are conducted by one or both of the artistic directors of post theater, Max Schumacher and Hiroko Tanahashi. Depending on the focus and length of the workshop, other post theater artists are joining.
