Theatre of Change? 

 

OPEN DISCUSSION: Theatre of Change? 

Sat 10.8.2024 10:00–12:00 Main Library Metso, Lehmus hall

 
Tampere Theatre Festival invites everyone to join a discussion on the purpose of theatre in times of change. Whether we look at the crisis of democracy, our attitudes towards others, or the nature that surrounds us, we see it clearly – a change has to come. Yet, we resist. We hold on to the past – our habits, our opinions and our privileges. What is the role of theatre in questioning the norms, perceptions and narratives that – at least seem to – make us what we are?
 
The conversation is sparked by a keynote address Theatre as a Site for Forging Democracy delivered by professor Maria Delgado, vice principal (Research and Knowledge Exchange) of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (University of London) followed by a commentary from artistic director Linda Zachrison of Göteborgs Stadsteater. Discussion is moderated by Linnea Stara, director of Theatre Info Finland TINFO.
 
The event is in English and open for all.
 
Organized in collaboration with Theatre Info Finland TINFO. Supported by Operaatio Pirkanmaa.
