We invite all theatre theorists and practitioners, students and university professors as well as any other interested parties to register for the conference on the topic of theatre in university centres in South-Eastern Europe (tendencies and perspectives of student theatre activities and cooperation and networking opportunities) which will be held in Zagreb 1 – 3 April 2009 within the Test!9 Festival. (www.test.hr)
Attending the festivals and watching the theatre work at universities in Belgrade, Skopje, Ljubljana, Sarajevo, Priština, Sofia, Zagreb, and else, we were thrilled with creativity, enthusiasm, energy, skills and modernity of student theatre artists. Their performances are coming deeply from their cultural background and personal experience what makes them extraordinary and somehow different from the rest of the Europe. It is heritage which still needs proper cultural and sociological studies. We believe that regional network of student (university) theatre will make it possible.
Therefore the main objectives of the Conference within the frame of Test!9 as we conceptualized it is sharing experience and founding a network of people and organizations that make theatre/culture at universities in SEE.
This centre/network/organization should help artists/students/professors to connect, share their work and collaborate within this network as well as towards the rest of the Europe/World.
Any abstract related to these themes is welcomed by the organizers.IUTA/AITU– International University Theatre Association, whose Test! is a member since 2000, encourage foundation of regional organizations. More about IUTA/AITU on: www.aitu-iuta.org
