RUNNING TIME: 90 MINUTES
SAME PLANET, DIFFERENT WORLDS
All theater is by definition local. Or is it? How does theater’s site-specificity change in a massively interconnected global society? How do we address not just issues of language but larger contextual issues and cultural assumptions in translating work from one place to another? How do we grapple with cross-cultural and intercultural translations in work that is made collaboratively across borders or online? Join invited guests Abigail Browde, Doug Howe, Kate Loewald, Erwin Maas, Aya Ogawa, Mariano Pensotti, and Dan Rothenberg for a freewheeling conversation about the challenges of thinking globally and creating locally in 2015.
Saturday, January 10 — 1pm at The Public Theater
THE ART OF ACTING IN CONTEMPORARY THEATER
For more than a century the dominant technique for acting has been based on Stanislavski, The Method and Psychological realism. How do actors do what they do in a post-Freudian, post-psychological, mediated, world of ensemble and collaborative work, post-dramatic theater, contemporary performance, and multimedia immersive experiences? Join invited guests Birgit Huppuch, Juliana Francis Kelly, Tony Torn, Kate Valk, and Paul Zimet for an informal and wide-randing conversation on the state of the art of acting in 2015.
Sunday, January 11 — 1pm at The Public Theater
Connect with the artists of the festival and the ideas behind their work with moderated post-show talkbacks. Visit show pages for schedule.
