Transit 8 Festival

 


BEAUTY AS A WEAPON
Theatre - Women - Conflict

 


1-12 June 2016
at Odin Teatret, Holstebro, Denmark

4-6 June:           Workshops and work demonstrations

7 June:              Workshops and symposium

8-12 June:         Festival

 


Every day we are confronted with what seems like a worldwide war against women. Also theatre practitioners are in search of an effective reaction. The only answer I have found is to do my work well, learning to use beauty and poetry as weapons. Conflict - in the sense of drama - contributes to the engagement and motivation of theatre performances. The fields of action imply a different use of words. In our craft the alternative to violence is not necessarily harmony and pacifism, but a fighting spirit that protects the values of life, diversity, exchange and beauty. These are some of the themes and questions that will be confronted during the Transit 8 Festival, through practical work and the contiguity of performances and women's different points of view.
