Behind The Curtain 1

The world is a stage. Every day is premiere. Indoors and outdoors.
The prison life hardly allows the unfolding of personhood. Profiling. Pushing through. To show his true self, is interpreted as weakness in this harsh environment. Dealing with emotions usually only takes place behind closed doors.
Prisoners and patients of the saxon penal institutions Chemnitz, Dresden, Zeithain, Regis-Breitingen and the forensic hospital Arnsdorf have the opportunity to participate in theater productions.
Art therapy in prisons opens inner doors and helps to create something together and to bring it to an end. Step by step.
