Orientation Workshop of the Contemporary Central European Theatre
The first orientation workshop of the Document/ary vs Postmemory international research project is to take place at OSA. The aim of the project is to reveal and examine differences between the conceptions of history based on the interpretation of documents (historical narratives) and the ideas of post-memory focused on emotional experience. The project is intended to provide a single platform for interested scholars and theatre experts to engage in a dialogue and explore such a complex problem as the theatrical representations of the past in contemporary theatre.
The event brings together actors, critics and scholars from the Visegrad countries, presenting their ideas and discussing further project developments.
The project is organized by the International Alternative Culture Center in cooperation with OSA Archivum, the Polish Cultural Institute, and other project partners, and is financed by the International Visegrad Fund.
