    Symposium

    Theatre as a Laboratory for community interaction

     

    Holstebro, 15 - 19 May 2014

     

     

    Odin Teatret's experience as a laboratory is rooted in the artistic quality of its performances. But a theatre laboratory has other tasks: to ask pertinent questions and solve concrete tasks (pure and applied research); to pass on technical knowledge (pedagogy); to be cultural operators who are active in the local community as a means of stimulation and integration. A theatre laboratory promotes artistic transformances, intercultural and intergenerational dialogue, and social exchange - or barter - to enliven the relationship between culturally distant individuals and subgroups. Thus theatre, aiming at exchange and social interference, becomes a means to activate a potential cultural energy, displaying anomalous and exceptional experiences. Theatre becomes the art of putting into relation that which is different, making it visible and allowing a communication based on a living contact of empathy and reciprocity. Going beyond its artistic objectives, theatre becomes a cultural motor which infuses equal dignity to the different forms of expression in a community.

    In general discussions, community theatre has often been dismissed as belonging to an amateur sphere that does not demand rigour and discipline resulting in performances of poor quality with the excuse of a political, social or didactic message. During the Symposium speakers of diverse origins and experience will confront the theme of a theatre laboratory's engagement in the community hoping to bring a different point of view. Performances will be presented to contribute to the discussion.
