INKA-Theatre was founded in 2008 in Berlin when there was no English Acting Courses to be had in Berlin. Since I was working at the English Theatre Berlin at the time, a lot of people came and asked about acting classes, so I decided to offer one.
The first classes were packed and I have no idea how we managed to all squeeze into this classroom that was the basement of a formal church in the street I lived in. It was a scene study course.
From then on I developed different weekly acting course formats – all with the first aim to empower our participants with acting and theatre methods – and I discovered my love for teaching and creating theatre with amateurs. Amateur comes from the latin word amare – and means doing something for the love of it – and that’s my experience, too!
The International People’s Theatre Berlin arose from our courses and was a big part of the whole concept for a while.
Several guest teachers started to teach with INKA-Theatre.
Since personal empowerment of our participants is our main focus, we now also offer Empowerment Through Theatre Workshops with different topics, usually as a weekend course, where acting and theatre methods are a means to empowering your own strengths gifts, talents, presence and expression.
