CRISIS COURSES IN THE INDEPENDENT THEATRE SCENE
LEARNING FROM LOCKDOWN
At the end of March 2020 the theaters were closed for several months. On the one hand, the lockdown of cultural life has revealed problems that were or could have been known before. On the other hand, it has also made people aware of the uniqueness of theater as an art of gathering and encounter, and it provoked solidarity and unexpected solutions. And now? How do we want to continue after the crisis? Can we learn from these experiences? This publication of the Impulse Theater Festival gathers contributions from independent theater professionals and cultural politicians about their insights, ideas and demands gained from the Corona crisis. The topics range from funding policies and social security to the fundamental right of artistic freedom and digitality to the vulnerability of the body in the theater space.
With contributions by Michael Annoff/Nuray Demir, Holger Bergmann, Boris Nikitin, Daniela Dröscher, Joy Kristin Kalu, Ladies and Gentlemen, Mbene Mwambene, Sibylle Peters, Anja Quickert, Sahar Rahimi, Felizitas Stilleke, Swoosh Lieu, Arne Vogelgesang, Stefanie Wenner et al.
The Impulse Theater Festival has been the most important platform for the independent theater scene in the german-speaking world for 30 years. In 2020 the festival had to be cancelled during the Corona crisis and parts of it were moved to the internet. Learning from the Lockdown is a publication of the Impulse Theater Festival, edited by Haiko Pfost, Wilma Renfordt and Falk Schreiber for the NRW KULTURsekretariat.
