Guest Performances

The programme continued with guest performances from German theatres in Ukraine in November and December 2018; presenting various theatre forms (documentary and classroom plays) with Ukrainian surtitles, in order to stimulate exchanges about current aesthetic developments and progressive forms. A lecture about participative and digital theatre was also organised. Each guest performance was followed by a public discussion to encourage a discussion on content, form and structure between the audience and the artists.

Theatre is Dialogue also promotes a continuous dialogue with local stakeholders to jointly develop professional collaborations as well as a structure for the contemporary theatre scene in Ukraine. It is with that objective that the ETC organised an alumni meeting with former ETC scholars in Kyiv, as well as a dialogue meeting with representatives of the independent and public theatres in collaboration with Goethe Institut Kyiv.
