Geblertheater, Oberstufen Ensemble - Wien (Austria)
The "Geblertheater" was founded 21 years ago, when I first took over the theatre-group at our school, Grg17 Geblergasse. From the beginning on the ensemble consisted of 10-18-year-old students. As the number of members constantly grew, I split the group according to age.
The "Antigone-ensemble", however, is a mixed group with five girls between 12 and 13 years of age and a larger group of students between 15-18, which makes it rather special. The younger ones will not be present at the festival in person, but their parts will be filmed and the theme-song recorded. We meet regularly during the year in the appointed lessons but have rehearsals at the weekends before the show, usually ending in jolly come-togethers at my studio where we also celebrate our after-show-parties. The oldest members of the group have been part of the ensemble for eight years and are particularly looking forward to ending their school-theatre-career on such a special note as the BRUCKLINN festival.
