Symposium:
Arabic Dramaturgies and Contemporary Theatre in the Arab World – September 27th & 28th, 2018

Contemporary theatre and performance in the Arabic world is a diverse and contested set of practices that are unfolding in a fast-changing political and culturally complex region.  In this situation, the performing arts are under pressure to independently produce new work, uphold traditions— and simultaneously to speak about contemporary lives, nationalism, class, race, religion, gender and new forms of theatre. In this symposium, we ask how theatre can continue to grow, develop artistically and continue to be a voice in the future of the Arabic world.  How can the theatre in the region thrive?
Submission deadline: July 23, 2018
