Theater and Criticism in Poland and the Czech Republic
Center for Urban History, Lviv
One of the most discussed questions on the contemporary theater scene is the place of criticism in the theatrical process. Each region and state’s experience is unique, yet the necessity of theatrical criticism – its role in the theater – remains an open question to the present day. Our two participants led the discussion outlining the theatrical process, the particularities of the development of contemporary directors and dramaturges, and the part that theatrical criticism plays in all this. The core activities of theater companies will assist in understanding the relevance of the experiences of both regions: what interests modern Poland and what is needed in the modern Czech Republic.
