14.00 – 15.30 h Panel II
Macht-Verhältnisse
in cooperation with Freie Universität Berlin
Host: Christel Weiler

It seldom crosses our minds that the theater is also a place of power. And yet: we voluntarily subject ourselves to certain regulations and demands and follow certain rules without questioning their legitimacy. The strategies and mechanisms used by the makers of theater are what the panel aims to address.
