A Discussion about contemporary
theatre with Brecht´s theory and practice
as a point of departure
Tuesday 9 October 2012

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 directors, actors, playwrighters, researchers and composers 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 part of four events that accompany the exhibition Realismus ist kein Stil (28.9-4.11).
