Grass Stage Social Theatre Forum No.14:

Social Change and Theatre in Hungary after 1989

Speaker: Dr. Agota Revesz

Curated by Zhao Chuan

Language: English with Chinese Translation

We are talking about theatre as independent from drama here. Hungary has a long tradition in theatre that developed its own peculiar characteristics during the 70’s. The transition of 1989 marked a change for theatre as well, and changes are still under way in the turbulent economic and social climate. Market conditions seem to prevail over artistic quality, and it is getting increasingly difficult to maintain the leading role of theatre in this era of disillusionment. These days it all goes back to the basic question of why you are on stage. You cannot create sincere theatre without answering it – and even if you do, you don’t necessarily survive.

Grass Stage Culture Station: Social Theatre Forum

“The Stage is a small world, and the world is a large stage”- Since daily life has become theatrical, there is no escaping a universal involvement in social theater. Each month the “Social Theatre” forum series will invite scholars and critics in the fields of culture and art to illuminate the stage on which we all dwell. To date, we have invited Christopher Connery, Zhang Xian, Gu Zheng, Rachel Freeman, Wang Xiaoming, Zhang Xianming and 2wheels4change group, and others to participate in the Grass Stage Culture Outpost as speakers and honored guests. It is our wish to engage various scholars’ work and thought in order to foster discussion on topics in culture, art, and public life. Dedicated to the exploration of the relationship among culture, art and society, Grass Stage Culture Station spreads knowledge and encourages interdisciplinary communication.

Culture Outpost Manifesto

Dedicated to the exploration of the relationship between culture, art and society, spreading knowledge, and interdisciplinary communication, the “Culture Outpost” is a small scale salon that Grass Stage has held since 2007. We have organized over 30 events, which have included lectures and lively discussion, and which have been and will continue to be free of charge. These events have featured expert panels, presentations, discussions and small scale performances. Based on the goals of the Grass Stage group, the “Culture Outpost” welcomes those who are concerned about society and culture, those with a wish to open their minds, and those willing to take an active part in discussions and to express their own ideas.
