Uwe Gössel. Implementation of the project theatre model in Ukrainian cultural space


Friday, 9 December 2016, 19:00

The End of Deception project is aimed at the critique of the imitation of reforms and dialogue and creation by the Ukrainian politicians the so called “image for export,” which substitutes the real transformation of state institutions, necessary for Ukraine’s European integration. The highlight of the project is to create the documentary theatre performance The End of Deception. A series of workshops, as well as a discussion on the challenges of reforming theatre industry in Ukraine, will take place within the project’s framework.

At the meeting Uwe Gössel will talk about social effects of the theatre and analyze the documentary theatre form through the example of The End of Deception performance, premiering on December 8.
