Through focused round tables, panels, small groups, social networking, and livestreamed dialogue with international artists, we will focus on key emerging topics including conflict resolution and the refugee crisis, hybrid forms of interdisciplinary work, and a new generation of theater makers.
About Theatre Without Borders
Theatre Without Borders (TWB) is a grass-roots network of international artists, theatres, and organizations that share a common interest in international exchange.
Today, TWB is an international grass-roots community comprised of a wide-spectrum of individual volunteers around the world who meet irregularly and communicate primarily through the Internet and our website. Ideas are generated and then implemented by the group. We start with a need and respond to that need.
We value “Conversation”, “Hospitality”, and “Information Sharing”. We welcome artists at all levels of practice: professionals, academics, amateurs, artists working in countries where there is no such thing as a professional theatre community, and students.
