A seminar on dramaturgies in a time of post-colonialism, March 11th 2019

What new dramaturgies are developed and needed in collaborative theatre between the global South and North, East and West? The question of representation in the theatre is important to debate in Malmö - the most diverse city in Sweden. Who is given a chance to speak? And who is given a chance to learn the structures of the art institutions? Who is invited in and what stories are they telling? Is the agency for negotiation of content, dramaturgies and concept equal for all artist and all participant in the arts? If not, why is it so?
