    Con­fer­ence Theme

    The­atre Between Tra­di­tion and Con­tem­po­rane­ity” is the pro­fes­sional con­fer­ence research­ing the Bridge between Tra­di­tion and Con­tem­po­rane­ity in per­form­ing arts. The con­fer­ence is open to dif­fer­ent art gen­res, tech­niques and forms — the­atre, dance, music, cir­cus, visual and mul­ti­me­dia art:

    • Per­form­ing arts in the era of con­stantly evolv­ing technology
    • Tra­di­tional forms of per­form­ing arts con­stantly recon­sid­ered and reshaped by con­tem­po­rary practitioners
    • How artists and audi­ence per­ceive “tra­di­tional” and “con­tem­po­rary” today — tra­di­tions influ­enc­ing, enhanc­ing and co-​mingling in con­tem­po­rary per­form­ing arts processes, affect­ing our artis­tic expres­sion, think­ing and images on the stage
    • Aston­ish­ing phe­nom­ena of arts appear­ing on the inter­sec­tion of cul­tures, when the bor­ders of coun­tries become conditional
    • Tra­di­tions help­ing artists in the search for the uni­ver­sal “inter­cul­tural” lan­guage in con­tem­po­rary per­for­mance and artis­tic expression
    • Tra­di­tions as inex­haustible source of inspi­ra­tion for future gen­er­a­tions of artists and firm foun­da­tion for inter­cul­tural dialogue
