Product description: Ivo Svetina (ed.) - Occupying Spaces. Experimental Theatre in Central Europe 1950–2010
As part of the TACE project, a symposium was held between 27 and 29 October 2009 in Ljubljana, dedicated to the experimental theatre between 1945 and 2000, with a special focus on the spaces occupied by experimental theatres, or rather, the "occupying" of non-theatrical spaces, thus urbanising and socialising them. Contributors from all five participating countries took part. The papers in this publication are based and developed on those read at the symposium. Here are a few of the focal points of research into experimental theatre in Central Europe in the second half of the 20th century: 1. when and how these theatres were established; 2. what the reaction was of the official (ideological and cultural) authorities; 3. under what conditions these theatres functioned (premises, financing,recruiting staff); 4. what their repertoire plans were; 5. what the influence was of these theatres on institutional (national) theatres; 6. how these theatres managed to establish contact with Western theatres (guest appearances and participation at international festivals) in spite of blockades (and censorship). The spaces in which these theatres were born and in which they created, their performances undoubtedly form one of the most unusual stories about how art alters the function of the (architectural) space in which it takes place. The book Occupying Spaces is the result of successful cooperation between experts, co-ordinators and institutions from five countries.
