THEATRE, INTERACTIVITY, DEMOCRACY

WED 22 APR 2015, FOLLOWING THE 2PM PERFORMANCE OF FIGHT NIGHT

In the run up to the General Election, London is awash with theatre about democracy – in addition to the run of the Belgian interactive piece Fight Night, London Bubble and Coney have both created work on this topic, while the Free Theatre of Belarus, living in exile in the UK, defines its existence through the notion of democracy. But how engaged are the young people of Britain with the political potential of theatre?

This event, aimed at a cross-section of school students and adults, will endeavour to extend our ideas about democracy, capitalising on the rich history of theatre as a democratic medium and promoting the notion of personal agency through interactivity. Building on Duška Radosavljević’s previous research into the work of Ontroerend Goed and audience-oriented dramaturgies, this is also her third public engagement event delivered in collaboration with Pablo Pakula.
