The Dialog-Wrocław International Theatre Festival in Poland presented the debate What is forbidden? About political theatre and politicisation of theatre in Poland​ livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv Friday 20 October at 16:00 CEST (Berlin, UTC +2) / 17:00 EEST (Beirut, UTC +3) / 3 p.m. BST (London, UTC +1) / 14:00 UTC +0 / 10 a.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4).

During this debate, we discussed the dangers to artistic freedom. We considered the mechanisms that transform some plays from artistic events into public ones, which then become a subject of heated social and political debate, as well as dangerous topics and themes in contemporary Polish theatre and why they should be considered by artists anyway.
