Congress of the Society for Theatre Studies, 13th edition, Frankfurt-Giessen, 3-6 November 2016
Under the heading “Theatre as Critique”, the organisers of the 13th Congress of the Society for Theatre Studies invited researchers to examine theatre as a critical practice. With the crisis of the classical groundings of both theatre and critique in mind, the congress aimed at a reconsideration of, on the one hand, the history, theory and issues of theatre and, on the other, the concept of critique. At the heart of the debate, therefore, was not just the subject matter of theatre critique but rather critique itself. Plenary speeches and shorter contributions on 8 different subject areas were be complemented by performative formats, visits to the theatre, talks and scenic contributions from students of the Hessian Theatre Academy (HTA).
Isabella Drăghici (G. Oprescu Institute of Art History) presented the paper The Communist Party Effect: Romanian Theatre under the 'Auspices' of Censorship.
