A village and the capital await us – working together, exchanging ideas and celebrating 100 years of work camps in Berlin!
The village of Paplitz with its approx. 360 inhabitants lies 80km south of Berlin. The Protestant parish Baruth and the village Paplitz are looking forward for the 10th time to us and our support in design works around the Protestant recreation home and in the village. Since 2004 EYS has been helping with renovation work in the recreation home. In this year’s work project we will carry out village renewal work for the community of Paplitz. We will work 4 hours a day e.g. from 8 a.m. – 12 a.m.. Of course there are also breaks in between.

In the afternoon (e.g. 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.) we regularly work 2 hours on theatre pedagogy. We test various methods and means of expression. These range from working on the body, voice and breath to space, choreography and improvisation. After 2 weeks in Paplitz we will move together as a group to Berlin and take part in the 4-day celebrations for the anniversary “100 Years of Work cams” from August, 25th – 28th. There we will present our theatre scenes developed in Paplitz to the other guests from all over the world.

In the leisure time spent together in Paplitz we can visit the museum village Glashütte, the quarry pond in Zesch or a nearby game park by bicycle, explore Potsdam by public transport and enjoy the garden with table tennis and fireplace.
