Curating Contemporary Theatre: A panel discussion
What might we mean when we talk about curating contemporary theatre in the UK today? What are the challenges of doing it in this country, now and in the future? What are the implications of use the word ‘curating’? And is the term ‘contemporary theatre’ meaningful, interesting or important?
This discussion brings together some of the key figures in contemporary theatre curation currently operating in this country. Pelin Başaran (Head of Programming at Battersea Arts Centre), Kate Craddock (Founder and Festival Director of Gateshead International Festival of Theatre, Mike Pony (Manchester-based curator and artistic Director of Submerge Festival), and award winning international theatre producer Richard Jordan, join the curator of Future Flares Festival Neil Mackenzie to discuss the challenges of curating radical new performance in the UK today.
