Working Method (Enkidu Khaled)

Theater maker Enkidu Khaled fled from Baghdad to Belgium in 2007. He uses his own story to allow the audience to interact in a creative way with experiences (which may or may not be pleasant). Using proven participatory techniques, performance and other forms of theater, he makes the audience part of a coping process with many layers. The power of imagination seeps through every part of this performance. Or is it a workshop? The complex process of theater making is analysed and simplified. Enkidu Khaled offers you a method that everyone can use to translate ideas onto a stage. That's why this performance is also interesting for therapists and teachers. Khaled gives you a unique view of the world of audience interaction. Khaled teaches the audience some dramaturgical tricks that lead to quirky performance art.

Enkidu Khaled refers in Working Method to his own war traumas, but more than that he wants to share with you the importance of reflection on societal themes. Besides that, he wants to stimulate you to tell your own story. One way or the other. The performance doesn't need to take place in a theatre. A simple, spacious room can already suffice.

"With Working Method, Enkidu Khaled created a performance with a unique view on the ways audience participation can take shape. (...) Yet the moment we are about to fully participate in the proposed working method, Enkidu Khaled makes the ground beneath our feet fall out from under us. It is only then that we feel the layered themes this artist incorporates." (jury report, Theater aan Zee Festival)
