Sisters Hope – Trust

This workshop took place at the university, University of Copenhagen, January 2007

At this workshop we were in an auditorium and in the fiction the participants met the sisters right after the war as the sisters had just founded Sisters Hope.

In this workshop, which also functioned as our drama pedagogical examination at the University of Copenhagen, the participants consisted of a colorful mix of different nationalities, who furthermore had very different educational backgrounds. Among the participant you would, among others, find an Italian businessman, a student of chemistry, a role player and a high school student. Our purpose was to illustrate the transformative, liberating and immersive potential that this workshop possessed the possibility to activate within the participants, no matter what background they had.

Sisters Hope – Starlight Hotel

This workshop took place at the folk high school Herning Højskole, Herning, November 2006

The participants of this fiction was the participants of the drama course at Herning Højskole. The fiction said that the sisters had taken over a bombed hotel during the war between The Whites and The Reds.

The condition of the hotel is fragile and poor due to times of war. The people working there stay inside. Few guests are visiting the hotel. Large parts of the hotel have collapsed, but not the bar, where people gather day and night. The bar, though, has run out of liqueur, and the sink and other kitchen devices have been taken down, to find more space to sleep in. However, the atmosphere of the bar still fills the rooms. Some are waiting for the apocalypse, others for better times; others again just want to give in to the party. The sisters have taken the hotel into custody and are educating the staff and the guests of the hotel according to the principles of the state of white.
