Theatre as Defiance
Wed 25 May, 4pm - 6pm (BST)
Free Zoom event
Among the many functions of theatre, its power to platform voices of dissent and to amplify perspectives that challenge the status quo hold enduring attraction. Through activist art and artistic activism, theatre is a medium where those who are side-lined elsewhere can take centre stage and assert themselves.
But what does that mean for the 2020s, a decade marked so far by global health crises, growing inequality and global protest? By bringing together artists who combine in their stage work advocacy, activism and art, this event sheds light on theatre as a means of defiance and galvanization.
Speakers include Sophie Kayes (Belarus Free Theatre, Belarus/UK), Amrou Al-Kadhi (writer/performer, UK) & Khulood Basel (Khashabi Theatre, Palestine)
