Burning Issues x Theatertreffen 2022
PERFORMING ARTS & EQUITY
Burning Issues will be held for the second time in co-operation with the Theatertreffen. The conference has advocated greater (gender) equity in the performing arts for many years now. In 2022, we are broadening our thematic focus to cover equity in more global terms. All of this is dependent on the issue of transforming the theatre: In lectures, discussions, workshops and examples of good practice we will study hierarchies, scrutinising them for patriarchal, racist and colonial influences, and provide space for empowerment and networking.
Burning Issues is a SAVE THE WORLD project in co-operation with the Theatertreffen and in collaboration with the Akademie der Künste and the International Theatre Institute (ITI Center Germany). Funded by the Fonds Darstellende Künste, GVL and the Rudolf Augstein Foundation.
