I just wanted to let anyone in the Cardiff area know about a series of talks that we will be hosting as part of our students' Polish Theatre Festival. There will be number of events during the Autumn, including 4 productions of Polish works by our students, but the next talk open to the public will be happening next Tuesday at The Atrium.( Please come to the foyer just before 6.30pm and we'll take you up to The Zen Room Cab403) More details below:
We are very pleased to announce that the second of our special talks as part of our Polish Theatre festival this Autumn will be happening in The Zen Room (CAB403)next Tuesday 15th October from 6.30-8pm. All are very welcome.
Our guest speaker is Dr Bryce Lease, and he will be speaking about Polish Theatre Post `89.
In the run-up to the 30 year commemoration of the Berlin Wall falling, Bryce will be discussing post '89 theatre making generally and Polish/Jewish relations and the Holocaust in particular. He will be using Apollonia by Warlikowski as a case study (with reference to Kantor and Grotowski) and ask questions about legacy, progress and political transformation.
Bryce Lease is a Reader in Theatre and Performance Studies at Royal Holloway where he is currently Head of Department for Drama, Theatre and Dance and also developed the MA Theatre Directing with Katie Mitchell. His writings have been published in numerous journals, including The Drama Review (TDR), Contemporary Theatre Review (CTR), Theatre Research International (TRI), Theatre Journal, European Stages and New Theatre Quarterly (NTQ). Bryce is Co-Editor of Contemporary Theatre Review, and a Subject Editor for European Theatre/Performance for the Routledge Performance Archive
If you'd like to know anymore about any of our activities this term and are in any way interested in the rich history of Polish Theatre, please do get in touch with me and I'll try to fill you in about what's happening
We'd love to see you next Tuesday!
All the best
