The Urgency of Latin American Theatre
Friday 27 September 2013 – 10.00am to 6.00pm
Room G22 / 26 Senate House, Russell Square WC1E 7HU
Following a fruitful partnership with Catherine Boyle and the Out of the Wings project, CASA has the pleasure of announcing the first ever CASA Symposium, a new space to think about Latin American theatre differently.
Bringing together a wide range of academics and theatre practitioners we will explore together ideas and themes emerging from the variety of Latin American theatre practices. How translatable are these practices? How urgent are the voices arising from Latin American theatre in Britain now?
