OPEN DISCUSSION: Theatre of Change?

Tampere Theatre Festival

Tampere Theatre Festival

Sat 10.8. 10–12, Lehmus Hall at Main Library Metso, Pirkankatu 2

Tampere Theatre Festival invites everyone to join a discussion on the purpose of theatre in times of change. Whether we look at the crisis of democracy, our attitudes towards others, or the nature that surrounds us, we see it clearly – a change has to come. Yet, we resist. We hold on to the past – our habits, our opinions and our privileges. What is the role of theatre in questioning the norms, perceptions and narratives that – at least seem to – make us what we are?
