Event Details

Is the theater for children and young people blooming nowadays? The plurality of productions confirms that. But do these performances follow the contemporary drama trends and social developments? Which is the relationship between quality and quantity? Are critics concerned with this type of theater? The 2- day workshop held by the Hellenic Association of Theater and Performing Arts Critics in this year’s Dimitria festival together with the Panhellenic Network for Theater in Education paves the way for this type of theater in Thessaloniki.

Brendon Burns, the main speaker and an iconic personality in the theater for young people, refers to the unique relation between theater and democracy while various authors, directors, drama teachers, critics and theater experts discuss the problems and all developments made. Short videos created by the group that deals professionally with the theater for children will be shown non- stop in a specially equipped room.
