Große Show in Bergedorf

Von Eidelstedt zog KCC weiter zur Stadtteilschule Bergedorf, wo sie mit einer fulminanten Show am  Montag (17.9.2018) vor rund 400 Schüler*innen ihre zweite creactiv-Woche in Hamburg starteten. Die Bergedorfer Schüler*innen aus der Theaterklasse „Musik und Theater“ aus Jahrgang 9  waren gut vorbereitet auf den Besuch – doch was sie sonst noch in der Woche erwartete, das konnten sie am Montag noch nicht ahnen.

Unser Volontär Fredrick Dagharo aus Dar es Salaam hat KCC und die Schüler*innen die Woche über begleitet. Hier ist sein Bericht:

While participating in the week with the Kigamboni Community Center (KCC) at the Stadtteilschule Bergedorf I observed heart warming moments, fun, sadness, fear and happiness. I saw amazing team work cooperation and unity among one another. The first impression from the first performance from KCC had led to great excitement among the kids and to to the desire to learn these skills and perform together. Smiles and laughter were all over the place as they were practicing. In the mean time the kids had learned about the impact our daily life has on the environment if we won’t take into account on how it implies on the climate change. This was included in their theater play as a display of the daily basis of the majority of the people.
It was amazing how they included these revolutionary songs in the play and created a masterpiece together with KCC for a final presentation: kids were sharp, motivated and had fun…
Another interesting thing was, that their teacher had prepared a surprise for everyone the second morning: nobody had a clue what it was, everyone was curious and slightly excited yet. Then that morning we all met at ohlsdorf station at 8:00 a.m. We thought maybe this is where the workshop will be conducted. It looked like a park, greenish and lot of beautiful trees and quietness…Then we were all called together and given earphones that enables you to hear when the guide speaks even if you might be far from him. We started walking inside (what was a park or we thought: there could be a museum). Then we were shown graveyards of soldiers who fought world war…and we got further and further inside. Suddenly out of the bushes a woman appears and started asking randomly “Have you seen my brother?“ Again and again she asked Some kids pulled back slowly – then she left. Everyone thought that was strange.

Then we were given stones and colors to write on the stones: what could and would you fight for? either family, peace, justice or….? We left again and saw other persons. They were all acting strange so that some kids started crying: they looked terrified already!! Then the tour went on but along the way we saw the people passing from far. Then we entered a church in which they asked me not to take any pictures inside and everyone was told to switch off their phones. They did another play inside the church and sang songs, drew figures as they were telling a story. Thus the kids realized it was a play and not real though still some weren’t very comfortable yet…
At last
we went back to school and everyone was talking about how thrilling it was – and also entertaining. In the evening the teacher who organized it had called all who were there and asked if they liked it and everyone was happy to talk about it. The next days the workshops continued and the kids were comfortable with KCC. I think it could be due to the moment they shared together: it had a great impact on getting closer with each other and surely was an amazing experience for the kids, for KCC…..and for me too.“

Zum Abschluss der Woche präsentierten die Schüler*innen im „Zeighaus“ der Schule die Ergebnisse ihrer Arbeit mit KCC in einer beeindruckenden Show – der Saal konnte die vielen neugierigen und begeisterten Zuschauer*innen kaum fassen: so viele Jugendliche waren neugierig gekommen. Gebannt verfolgten sie die einzelnen Szenen, die von Ressourcenverschwendung, Armut, Korruption, Plastikmüll u.v.a. Umwelt- und  Klimathemen handelten. Die Schüler*innen hatten dazu zum Teil eigene Szenen entwickelt  oder Rollen aus der KCC-Show Mama Earth übernommen. Hier ein zusammengefasster Mitschnitt der Aufführung:

Mit tobendem Aplaus und einem Abschlussgespräch in kleinerem Kreis endete dieser aufregende Vormittag.  Am Nachmittag gab es dann nochmal eine Begegnung und Aufführung mit dem Schulzirkus und KCC, zu dem vor allem die Eltern eingeladen wurden, die am Vormittag nicht kommen konnten. Auch hier gab es am Ende lauter strahlende Gesichter, lang anhaltenden Applaus und rhythmische KCC-Rufe.

Ein großes Danke an die jungen  Künstler*innen für ihre tollen Darbietungen und ihre Workshoparbeit!
