Event description

Description

Under the auspices of Gale Brewer, Manhattan Borough President Daniel Herman, Minister of Culture of the Czech Republic, Rehearsal for Truth is a unique festival presenting the best in Central European theater to New York’s public and professional audiences.

The festival will highlight Havel’s legacy as a playwright and activist through live performances, panel discussions, and workshops. The festival will reflect not only Havel’s contribution to twentieth-century theater but also his belief in the potential of Central European cultural traditions to enrich human existence in the modern age.

Rehearsal for Truth is organized by Vaclav Havel Library Foundation and BBLA, in partnership with Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Slovak performing arts institutions and cultural institutes. Over 25 partners have joined forces with the Vaclav Havel Library Foundation and BBLA to launch this festival in 2017.

Panel discussion I : Theatre and the Political: Dramaturgy, Ideology, and Injustice

How are the potentialities of theatre conceived to fulfill an ideological design, how is ideology transmitted as theatre to shape material and symbolic forms of experience? The panel is framed by these and similar questions, asking how theatre re/imagines the contemporary world as a space of human and nonhuman interdependencies, refiguring local and global sensibilities and relations, and particularly rendering visible the marginalized, the silenced, the unjust.

Moderated by: Hana Worthen, Assistant Professor, Theatre and Performance Studies, Barnard College, Columbia University

Panelists:

Thomas Kriegsmann, President, ArKtype, New York

Martina Peckova Cerna, Head of International Cooperation Department, Arts and Theatre Institute in Prague

Zuzana Ulicianska, Public Relations Department, Theatre Institute in Bratislava, playwright, journalist
