The Government Inspector – video

A video of the story telling adaptation of Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol’s 1836 hilarious satire on the corruption in the Russian Empire – perfectly actual for today in every country.

Elif Temucin and Erkan Uyaniksoy, two recent graduates of The Commedia School from Istanbul preformed their well reviewed version of this story to The Commedia School Studio.

The show is supported by NORDPLUS and The Gogol Project which is a ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) network of activities in many countries.

Educational Theatre training for youth in Kenya

To begin the New Year 2011, on the first of January I boarded a plane from Copenhagen to Nairobi and from there to Mombassa, Kenya to give a brief one week intensive training in theatre to a select group of AMURT Youth.  I had been told that these youth had been doing some theatre, but their basic knowledge of the craft was not very extensive.  My expectations and objectives were quite high – in one week to produce two to four quality presentations ready for public presentation dealing with issues facing the youth of Likoni, a slum suburb of Mombasa.  These issues, I had been informed, included HIV/AIDS, drug abuse, early marriage, and inter-religious conflict.
