Improvisational Theater?
Improvisational theater is a stage show without a pre-written script. The dialog is not written down or rehearsed beforehand. The musicians don’t yet know what they will play. It is all created on the spur of the moment, in the here and now.

What makes improv so exciting? It is the intellectual freedom the performers enjoy. The authenticity of their acting. And above all, the fun they have on stage. Of course, it also helps when the actors are mature personalities and knowledgeable about the world. Their artistic discipline, dramaturgical expertise and careful attention to content are what give improv its special appeal.
Our performance techniques range from improvisations based on a single thought to treatments of complex topics. We can improvise dramatic or funny scenes, or we can present an entire full-length show for the evening entertainment at a large-scale event – guaranteed to thrill your audience.
Philosophy Theater?
Philosophy Theater illuminates fundamental questions and issues.
The audience takes an active part in the discussion. The action on stage demonstrates specific situations.
The topic can be a question of ethics, or it may involve more general issues of concern to humankind, society, politics or a particular company.
Philosophy Theater provides a forum in which people can deal with – perhaps even argue about – controversial topics in a friendly and disarming way:

Our ensembles can be:
- local
- company-specific
- multicultural
- international
- multilingual

Our ensembles have expertise on:
- on-site questions
- local issues
- company themes
- international topics
- multinational subjects
- intercultural aspects

One of the shortcomings or civic and political education is the fact that people don’t really engage with one another any more – at least, not with others whose opinions are different than their own. Increasingly, people lack the skills required to defend their position and offer constructive arguments in the face of principled opposition.

Philosophy Theater represents a playful way to strengthen democratic discourse.
People find themselves enjoying a controversial discussion. Opposing positions are illuminated rather than simply being dismissed. We dive into dilemmas and examine them from every angle.

A dilemma is defined as a situation in which there is no clear right or wrong. Any approach, any decision taken, would also produce a number of bad outcomes.
This may sound rather abstract. But it’s not.
Here are three dilemmas that audiences have suggested in the past, and that we have put on stage:
An audience member volunteered this situation: “Last week my best friend told me he has been cheating on his wife. He made me promise I wouldn’t tell her. But she is also a good friend of mine. Yesterday she called me because she noticed her husband has been acting strange, and asked me if I know what’s going on with him. What should I do?”
Another guest contributed the following situation: “I’m an IT hotshot specialized in computer security issues. I am a vehement supporter of data autonomy and data security. At the same time I am in crippling debt and need a well paid job. Google has offered me a highly paid position in their tracking department. My money troubles would be over immediately. Should I take the job or not?”
Each of these examples shows that dilemmas are complex issues.
People have to take many things into consideration before making a decision.
And no matter what course of action they choose, they will pay a high, personal price.
A woman in the audience found herself in this situation: “My best friend hat a one-night-stand and now she’s unexpectedly pregnant. This is not the right time in her life to have a baby. But at the same time she finds herself wanting a partner and a family. What should I advise her? Should I encourage her to have the baby, or not?”

The goal of DILEMMA DELIGHT is not to find the “right” solution for situations like these.
On the contrary. The objective is to investigate and illuminate the dilemma from every angle, to come up with options and include each and every member of the audience – each and every potential conviction or opinion – in the thought process. And to do it all in a playful, uplifting way.
This makes the “price” of each potential decision clear.
DILEMMA DELIGHT takes a serious approach, but spices up the improvised sketches with entertaining aspects, joie de vivre and a spoonful of sugar. When facing a difficult dilemma, a little humor goes a long way...
