Whose theatre is it anyway?
Join us on 29 January, for a conversation with participants, practitioners and others about ownership in theatre. With artistic facilitators and communities working together, who exactly are the experts, and how does individual and community ownership of theatre happen?
do we mean by ownership and why is it important in community theatre?
*How does the theatre facilitator work towards creating that, and do they control the means of production?
*What power relations exist between the participant and practitioner?
*Is there such a thing as collective ownership?
*Do processes always end with collective consensus?
*How does the practitioner facilitate ownership of a theatre piece by the people making it?
The seminar will be chaired by Dr Kerrie Schaefer, and will include presentations from Jonathon Petherbridge, Director of London Bubble, Common Wealth Theatre, acta participants and practitioners, and lots of opportunity to discuss/debate the issues with the speakers and seminar attendees.
