The Trouble With Theatre

28 Apr 2011

Art has arguably become one of the places of contemporary entertainment but when does it become theatre? The lines between performance, live art, experimental theatre are not always easy to draw as theatre makers experiment further and further with the form and increasing numbers of artists turn to the tropes of theatrical performance, using scripts, actors, stages and lighting to make their work.

Artists and theatre makers have been invited to discuss to what extent the conventions of theatre constrain or facilitate inventiveness; Tai Shani, Roman Vasseur and Sally O’Reilly will be joined by more to be confirmed.

This talk has been put together in collaboration with writer and curator Sally O’Reilly.
