Redefining Theatre: Theatre and Society in Transition (online conference)

Date 28.05.2021 - 29.05.2021

Location Berlin/online

The recent coronavirus pandemic has yet again shown us the strength of theatre’s interrelation with the society and just how easily theatre’s social relevance can shift at the time of a profound social change. The “Redefining Theatre: Theatre and Society in Transition” online conference will discuss in what ways we can reflect on theatre in times of societal transition.

The event will welcome renowned theatre experts such as Christopher Balme (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany), Anneli Saro (University of Tartu, Estonia), and Tony Fisher (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama London, UK). See the conference programme here.

The online conference will be held at the Freie Universität Berlin via Webex on May 28-29, 2021. The conference is free to attend but registration is required via emailing at
