We are happy to announce that we have a new supporter on board. This time it is a big fish: Theatersport Berlin.
They are one of the most famous and popular improv theatre companies in Germany. For more than 20 years those guys perform their shows every week in Berlin and at various improv festivals all over the world.
You wonder how Planting A Future and an improv theatre company come to partner? Well…maybe you should know that improv theatre means that the actors do not rehearse. They just jump on stage and ask the audience for suggestions like places, genres, music styles, authors, centuries, relationships between people, jobs…and then it goes 5-4-3-2-1-GO! And a scene starts. They just make up everything that happens on stage. Their motto is “We don’t know what we play, we only know that we will play”.
Makes a lot of sense if you connect that to Planting A Future, right? We improvise a lot too. We do have ideas and plans, but we don’t always know how to get there. So we just take what life throws at us and make the best of it. At the end of the day we do achieve what we aimed at.
How we got in touch with Theatersport Berlin? Well…Julie made that possible. She is a big fan and has been at their shows for years now. Obviously she made friends with the actors at some point and now helps out a bit at the shows and takes the photos for their Facebook page. Her love for Africa and Zambia are well known there and when she told them about Planting A Future they straight away agreed to support us. 🙂
Right now we are still talking about how Theatersport can support and help us. We have some nice ideas which are still in the making. So keep posted. For now we are being featured on their website.
Thank you so much, guys! DANKE!
