Forecast: A School of Thinking-With
Dublin Theatre Festival and Theatre Forum invites theatre makers, curators, dramaturgs, directors, thinkers and producers from Ireland and abroad for an international school Forecast. A School of Thinking-With – a digital space of common learning and sharing practices. During the 17 days the school participants will take part in online workshops, lectures and conversations, as well as watching festival performances online. Participants will also have time to take a break from the tiring online environment and delve into offline wanderings in our local contexts.
The workshops, conversations and lectures will be run by guest international performing arts makers and thinkers, invited especially for the school. Their practices, based on diverse contexts and backgrounds, are deeply political and poetic at the same time. In their everyday work, they dismantle dominating power and colonial structures and practice a feminist approach not only as a topic, but as the very logic of their work and as a the way of building relationships with their audiences.
Inspired by transnational perspectives, we will observe carefully our own local contexts and landscapes, share experiences and desires relating to it and make a collective attempt to see the layers that might not have been visible from a singular perspective.
