Franziska Pierwoss

Workshop 2021/22

If there is a Technical Rider, why not an Ecological Rider? What is more sustainable, a trip or twenty hours of Zoom? What alternatives are there if you no longer want to use polystyrene? How do you justify the expensive but sustainable purchase in the context of a grant ? 

 The ECO RIDER is a tool to start working sustainably in front of, on and behind the stage.

During the 5-hour workshop, all participants are invited to gain an insight into the different working areas of sustainable stage production and to deal with practical implementation by means of examples. 

The ECO RIDER workshop is explicitly aimed at all people involved in theatre production – whether employed or freelance: production managers, actors and stage technicians, directors as well as festival makers, costume and set designers – and invites them to ask questions and to deal with the basics of operational ecology together.

The ECO RIDER was developed by the artist Franziska Pierwoss on behalf of the BFDK (Bundesverband Freie Darstellende Künste e.V.).
