SPRACH-FLUSS

 SPRACH-FLUSS (Language – Flow) – Thu, 08 October – 1.15 – 2.15 – at the WALL

The Government of the Federal Republic of Germany has set up a partnership with about 100 schools around the world, where German is taught. In order to establish a world wide network of future partners in the realms of culture, academia, and economy, these partner schools receive specific support in terms of teaching and learning materials as well as scholarships for educational programmes, in which selected learners and teachers have the chance to participate.

The theatre project SPRACH-FLUSS comprising eight theatre workshops in Africa and Germany with 130 learners and teachers from 34 partner schools is the most prominent project on the African continent. It has been initiated by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the Institute for Media- and Drama Studies at the University of Hildesheim, Germany.

Wits Language School is proud to have had the opportunity to work with the Sprach-Fluss Project, through Dr Edda Holl, by introducing a grop of twenty learners to the practice of integrating language and self-expression through movement and performance.

On 8th of October this group of young South Africans, who have been learning German in an intensive way for three academic terms only, will present a short performance in which the themes of breaking down barriers – be they physical, emotional or mental – will be explored.

The twenty learners have been sponsored to learn German through the Job Creation Trust for the purposes of developing young South Africans and increasing their employability through the learning of a foreign language.
