A new ‘analogue and digital’ network aiming to connect every theatre in Europe is gearing up to launch.
Announced this week at the Culture Shift 2 Conference at Sheffield Theatres, to coincide with the UK formally triggering its withdrawal from the European Union, Theatron’s EngagingTheatre Network intends to combine knowledge and best practice sharing online with in-person workshops, artistic work, and direct interventions in schools.
“It is important to always be analogue. Theatre is analogue,” Artistic Director of Theatron Lars Seeberg told AP.
“The network will be online, but we’ll keep hosting workshops and performances. We’ll be present in classrooms, and we’ll continue giving a voice to people marginalised in society.”
