About This Talk

The Living Theatre is: experiment and mission, happening and improvisation, dialogue with the audience and resistance against injustice and violence. Do others continue to relate to the Living Theatre’s artistic concepts today? What are the forms of expression used by political, activist theatre today? And is it even possible for theatre to be unpolitical? Marcel Kohler, Joulia Strauss and Dirk Szuszies will discuss the legendary theatre company’s ideas and analyse their suitability for today’s practice.
