Bürgerbühne – Production Visit

17-18 January 2013
Start: 17 Jan. from 2 pm at State Theatre Dresden | End: 18 Jan. at 2:30 pm at Hellerau 

This production visit aims to inspire other houses to test the idea of a ‘citizens theatre’ and to create networks between those working on citizen theatre models. The visit gives Theatron members the opportunity to see the Bürgerbühne Dresden in action, and to discuss its vision, organisation, working practices and results with the artistic and management teams, as well as with the citizens involved.
