Goethe Institut Thessaloniki has organized a celebration of the German language, full of workshops and seminars for teachers, performances by high-school and university students, poster presentations a flea market, games and many many more.
Unfortunately, the people form Goethe Institut were a bit secretive about it.... I only received their newsletter 2 days before their actual event, so as a result I missed most of it. It was really a pity to miss all this wonderful work.
I did manage to catch a couple of performances in the end of Saturday, though.
One of them was held by the students of the German School here in Thessaloniki. A performance that had it all! Theater, dance, and play. Although it lasted only half an hour, the students showed us the meaning of communication between people, no matter if they come from different countries. Using Greek, German and English, as well as drawings and dance, they made their point that we all can "find" each other. We all have a "meeting" point (Begegnung)
Another interesting presentation was the one by AUTh students, using poetry. During their workshop, they had to find poems about specific subjects like love and spring and they actually performed their favourite poems in their own way. Hopefully we will have more information on such wonderful events in the future.
