Professional Meeting & Discussion

Date and time: 14 November, Tuesday, 14:00 – 17:00

Language: English

Place: Goethe-Institute Bulgarien

Adress: Str. “Budapesta” 1

Moderator: Ida Daniel


Let’s get into a room together and talk about the future of theater and live arts. How can the choice between research and craft shape this future? Is this a binary opposition or there is more to it?

Heiner Goebbels, the artistic professor of Giessen’s Applied Theater Studies has been led by several principles in this quest and he will be willing to look at them in conversation with everyone who is curious about education in performing arts, working in a collective, shifting the drama between characters into a drama of the perception, artistic imagination as giving space for the imagination of the audience.

The conversation will start with introductory talk between Heiner Goebbels and Ida Daniel and will soon fluctuate into an open discussion with focus on notions and issues that will be surfacing in the first part.
