About This Talk

Examples of abuse of power in the theatre are becoming more frequent, even though the diagnosis seems to have been determined ever since #MeToo: There is a structural power issue in the theatre. Initiatives like Burning Issues or ensemble-netzwerk clearly show that it is time to explore new forms of organisation in theatres. Therefore, Theatertreffen will host this democratic, self-moderating panel that will open itself to questions from all sides in order to negotiate new forms of democratisation, of the collective and of productive self-criticism.
