Call for Proposals - The Ever-expanding Horizons of Theatre

Theatre Faculty of Janacek Academy of Performing Arts in Brno is pleased to invite you to the Conference in Theatre Practice and Theory. This year's topic is The Ever-expanding Horizons of Theatre.

The conference will be held on 12 – 14 November 2020 in Brno, Czech Republic and it provides a platform on which different concepts of research in the field of theatre practice and theory can be contrasted. The event has been attended by over one hundred professional artists, researchers and doctoral students from Europe, Africa, North as well as South America and Asia who have come to Brno to introduce their research in progress to an international audience and discuss common methodological issues.

This year we would like to examine the ever-expanding and changing horizons of theatre as well as theatre research. In 2020, the idea of theatre outside the designated theatre building is nothing new, yet the academic viewpoint tends to focus on the purely dramaturgical and directional matters of such projects. Being an academy of performing arts, we would like to examine this phenomenon not only from the perspective of the changing thematic focus, but also from the view of theatre management, light and sound technology, or stage design. During our conference, we would like to bridge theatre practitioners and academics and offer a think tank, where everyone can share their opinion on the theatre horizons. We invite doctoral students as well as experienced theatre-makers.

The full Call for Proposals can be found on the website: The deadline is May 17th 2020.
