Workshop programme: meet C.S. Lewis

Workshop programme prior to the one-man performance 'An evening with C.S. Lewis'

Prior to the theatre performance 'An evening with C.S. Lewis' a workshop programme will take place from 15.30 - 17.45 h:

  • 1st round of workshops from 15.45 - 16.30 h.
  • 2nd round workshops from 16.45 - 17.45 h.

Workshop 1: The narrative account of the faith. Lewis as apologist of Christianity, by Benno van den Toren

Lewis has written well-known argumentative apologetic texts. In his Narnia stories, however, he shows in his own way how he engages in faith accountability. Stories help us to imagine the imaginable. Stories reveal our double motives that determine how we weigh arguments. Stories touch us existentially. We use fragments to see how Lewis does this in a masterful way.

Workshop 2 (in Dutch): Lewis and the Screwtape letters, by Arjan Plaisier

A guardian angel is good company. A personal devil is not. That's exactly the idea that Lewis developed in The Screwtape Letters. This results in fascinating literature. Lewis aims not so much  to expose the tricks of the evil powers as to be a coach for Christians. What is it all about in Christianity and what are your weaknesses? 

Workshop 4: The Chronicles of Narnia, by Philip Crowley (only round one)

Chances are you are too old to return to Narnia. Don't worry, this workshop is specifically for everyone who is older than a child. The workshop 'The Chronicles of Narnia' is given by the actor of 'Evening with C.S. Lewis' himself. An interesting workshop for all those who are fascinated by Lewis' intriguing fantasy world and who want to discover new insights with a connoisseur.
