Theatre Today

A discussion about contemporary theatre with Brecht´s theory and practice as a point of departure

Bertolt Brecht approached theatre as a forum for political ideas and explored its relation to reality. His theory also included every practical aspect of theatre making - such as acting, directing, scenography, music and drama. With Brecht´s theory and practice as a point of departure, a number of practicians within the field talk about contemporary theatre and what direction they think theatre is taking today - practically, aesthetically and politically. Jörgen Dahlqvist from Teatr Weimar moderates the discussion between Fredrik Haller (director), Annika Nyman (playwrighter), Kent Olofsson (composer), Public Plot (theatre collective), Linda Ritzén (actor and director) and Kent Sjöström (researcher).

This evening is organised in collaboration with Teatr Weimar and a part of four events that accompany the exhibition Realismus ist kein Stil. The disucssion will be held in Swedish.
