We would like to invite you to join us for a round-table event called ‘Challenging Public Perceptions: Diverse Dramaturgies, Processes and Audiences’, organised by the Directing and Dramaturgy Research Cluster. It will address the topic of diversity in the theatre from different perspectives, asking if and how diverse dramaturgies work to challenge, oppose or perhaps reinforce and confirm established tropes of public perception and discourse.

We believe it will be a very stimulating debate! The speakers in the round-table are:

Mojisola Adebayo – actor, playwright, director, producer, teacher

Pippa Hill – literary manager, Royal Shakespeare Company

Fin Kennedy – playwright; artistic director, Tamasha

R. M. Sanchez-Camus – live artist, scenographer, performer

The event will be on Tuesday, November 8th, 2016, from 3pm to 5pm and will be divided in two parts: approximately 90 minutes for the round-table per se, followed by 30 minutes for questions from the audience. It will take place in the Grove Concert Room (G274).

The round-table will be open to the public, live-streamed over the internet and recorded for archive purposes. It is free of charge, but booking is essential. Our box office can be found here: http://www.theatreartsmdx.org/diverse-dramaturgies.

Best wishes,

Kate Lane, Abele Longo, Ian Saville, Pedro de Senna

on behalf of the Directing and Dramaturgy Research Cluster

    We have had a change of speaker in our programme for today’s (3pm-5pm, Grove Concert room) Directing and Dramaturgy research cluster event, Challenging Public Perceptions: Diverse Dramaturgies, Processes and Audiences. Unfortunately Mojisola Adebayo cannot be with us this afternoon, but we are delighted to announce we will be joined by Modupe Salu, an award-winning young performer and theatre maker, whose debut show I Can’t Breathe, a response to the death of Eric Garner at the hands of New York police, will be performed later this week at the Camden People’s Theatre.

    The event is free, but booking is essential. Our box office can be found here: http://www.theatreartsmdx.org/diverse-dramaturgies.
