Culturebot: Scanning the Landscape: Culturebot presents a series of round table conversations on the most current and compelling ideas at work in the field of contemporary theatre and the conditions in which it is being made. Join leading practitioners, thinkers, and supporters of cutting edge theatre for lively discussions on the state of the field and what the future might hold—
Same Planet, Different Worlds
Saturday 10 January at 1 p.m. EST (New York) / 18:00 GMT (London)
All theatre is by definition local. Or is it? How does theatre’s site-specificity change in a massively interconnected global society? How do we address not just issues of language but larger contextual issues and cultural assumptions in translating work from one place to another? How do we grapple with cross-cultural and intercultural translations in work that is made collaboratively across borders or online? Join a group of respected writers, directors, and presenters to discuss the challenges of thinking globally and creating locally in 2015.
The Art of Acting in Contemporary Theatre
Sunday 11 January at 1 p.m. EST (New York) / 18:00 GMT (London)
For more than a century the dominant technique for acting has been based on Stanislavski, The Method and Psychological realism. How do actors do what they do in a post-Freudian, post-psychological, mediated, world of ensemble and collaborative work, post-dramatic theatre, contemporary performance, and multimedia immersive experiences? Join a group of respected performers, writers, and directors to discuss the state of the art of acting in 2015.
