Systemic Crises in European Theatre

This international conference examines the crisis of theatre in Europe. Across the continent we can observe significant institutional challenges and transformations: funding cuts, demographic changes, media and technological innovations, political interventions, movements in the public sphere, shifts in aesthetic tastes and moods. Each alone is seldom enough to cause a crisis, but in combination they do. There is a pressing need for robust research into the complex configuration of factors at work that are leading to significant shifts in the way theatre is understood, organised, delivered and received. The conference will bring together scholars from different disciplines and countries to examine factors that are common across Europe.

Keynote speakers: Shannon Jackson (Professor of Rhetoric, Theater, Dance and Performance Studies, UC Berkeley), Chris Dercon (Intendant, Volksbühne Berlin) in conversation with Peter Boenisch (Founding Co-director, European Theatre Research Network), Axel Haunschild (Professor, Leibniz Universität Hannover) and Tracy C. Davis (Barber Professor of Performing Arts; Professor of English and Theatre, Northwestern University).

Both days the conference begins at 9:30 am.
