One group of our integration courses took part in a workshop at the Maxim Gorki Theater.
Full of excitement early in the morning, we were sitting on a bench in front of the theatre waiting for a drama teacher. Then she came and soon after the first warming up activity, all our fears were gone. At first, we built the tableau. Next, by means of pantomime – only with mimic ant and gestures – we presented a short story. Finally, we acted in a role-play. Suddenly to speak German seemed much easier! Mistakes did not count – only joy at playing.
When we stood outside again, we asked ourselves a question – when can we come again to the Gorki Theater?
