Workshop: How to be an artist in times of decoloniality? – fåtal platser i Oslo!

med Rodolfo García Vázquez (Brasil)

Workshop med den brasilianska teater- och fimskaparen Rodolfo García Vázquez (BR) om teaterutövarnens roll i att navigera och svara på samtida samhällsförändringar, särskilt kopplade till dekoloniala tillvägagångssätt.

Workshopen kommer att ge insikter som stärker dig som konstnär genom förståelse och hantering av nya sociala krav, samt utmaningar från sociala rörelser i samtida samhällen. Workshopen kommer att innehålla både teoretiska och praktiska aktiviteter.

Rodolfo genomförde motsvarande workshop och föreläsning i samband med Theatertreffen 2024 och är även medskribent till«Looking for direction – rethinking theatre directing practices and pedagogies in the 21st century", ett resultat av et europeisk samarbeidsprosjekt som har sitt utspring fra Ernst Busch-skolen i Berlin.
