Inspired by the work of Projekt Europa and informed by Radical Mischief 2018, this special event promises to provoke and entertain in equal measure.
1 August 2020
The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon
Join us for a special event which brings together theatre-makers, academics and experts in a series of lively debates to question the future of theatre, language and Europe itself. Ideal for early career or established academics and artists, as well as general audiences interested in this debate. Co-curated by the RSC and the University of Birmingham in the fifth year of our unique collaboration, this event will consist of a series of relaxed, open conversations specifically designed to encourage democratic discussion.
Together, we will interrogate questions such as:
- How do theatre makers continue to work with text in a world where language is increasingly so corrupted?
- What are the stories we can tell ourselves about the future of Europe if we cannot rely on language anymore?
- If language cannot express the truth, what can? And how can theatre respond to that?
Speaking the Future is inspired by the work and themes of Projekt Europa and informed by the success of the groundbreaking 2018 Radical Mischief Conference. This event is suitable for early career or established academics and artists as well as members of the general public, and promises to provoke and entertain in equal measure.
