Panel discussion Speaker: Jisun Kim, Christoph Gurk, Wang Lin Presented by: Arndt Röskens Language: English/German Goethe-Nationalmuseum
Rapid technological development, opening up seemingly endless, unknown possibilities, goes hand-in-hand with fundamental transformation of society, the economy and culture. The panel discusses how the performative arts are situated within this field of tension. What do new technologies mean for our understanding of stage and theatre? Which topics are relevant, how are audience expectations’ changing and how is the space/actors/viewers relationship defined? Theatre-makers from China, Korea and Germany discuss their experiences with content-related and aesthetic changes in the performative arts.
