VIRAL THEATRES: PANDEMIC PAST / HYBRID FUTURES SYMPOSIUM

REGISTER HERE FOR THIS ONLINE EVENT

How hybrid is the future of theatre? In what ways has the pandemic changed how we work in theatre and gather in it as a public space?

We would like to invite you to our Symposium Viral Theatres: Pandemic Past/Hybrid Futures as we explore these questions. In three days of events, we will take stock of how pandemic time has moved from a state of exception to new normality between viral outbreak and containment and what that means for theatrical production.

The symposium brings together theatre practitioners and scholars in a series of discussion panels and debates.

DISCUSSION PANELS:

The Viral Theatres-Research Project, a collaboration of the Free University, the Humboldt University, and Bard College Berlin, is funded by the VolkswagenFoundation. The Opening Events are co-financed by the research project “Extended Audiences” in the Research Area “Travelling Matters” at the EXC2020 “Temporal Communities” and take place with support from the metaLAB (at) Harvard & FU Berlin, the Harvard University Mahindra Humanities Centers, and the Open Society University Networks.
