Imagine that work is a person. What do you want to ask her?


What does work actually stand for? 

What does the slogan „working” mean?

Will you occupy my days and give me sleepless nights?

What part of you is really true?

What are your plans towards me?

Do I need you for a happy/satisfying life?

How can I make it up with you?

Will you take my life from me?

Will you destroy me as a human?

Will I be content with you?

What good do you have for me?

Is it possible to go crazy with you?

Do you want to help or hinder me?

What exactly are you?

Will we work well together?

Do I have to get up so early for you?

Will you satisfy me?

Does spending half of life with you have to most often be associated with weaker contact between loved ones and lack of time for them?

Does my attitude to you change with time?

This is one of the tasks that we performed during the "Scenarios of the Future" workshops for young people about work and working. The job category is a common aspect of life for most of us. “Future scenarios” are designed to recognize, explore and tame it. During the process we consider what it means to work in the 21st century. We create space for the exchange of work-related experiences. We consider our beliefs and values ​​that we hear at home.

What is being said about working in your immediate vicinity? What is the role of work in human life? How will the future work look like? How do you see yourself at work after school, after college? And if not work, then what?

We analyze these and many other questions through various theatrical tools such as voice, text, body, sound, space, object and movement. We look at ourselves, discover or deepen our potential and skills both from our’s and the group’s perspective . With the participants we want to analyze the notion of work to gain a more complex view than what is based on experiences from home, close environment and the media. We want to expand this picture and encourage people to make choices based on their values, needs and resources, and to think boldly about themselves and their future. 

During the lockdown we invited high school classes to online workshops. We continued to use the tools of theater and performance, but in a different way, through the medium of the screen and web applications, which allowed us to engage young people in discussion, reflection and action. Despite the online live contact, we managed to establish relationships and creatively and actively develop the category of "work".
