I would like to draw your attention to a public Q&A session with Jens Hillje, co-director of Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin, on dramaturgical practice and the work of the Gorki Theater.
Thursday 19 February 2015, 5:30pm
James Arnott Theatre, Gilmorehill Centre, University of Glasgow
Since the beginning of the season 2013/2014, Gorki's new artistic team around co-directors Shermin Langhoff and Jens Hillje have turned Berlin's smallest state theatre into a unique social site. Productions by Gorki directors like Yael Ronen, Nurkan Erpulat, Falk Richter and Havan Savas Mican are examining questions of cultural, ethnic and sexual identity from the most diverse perspectives. In 2014 this innovative approach was rewarded with the Theatre of the Year award.
Theatre Studies at Glasgow University is delighted have Jens Hillje come to Glasgow, his first “official” trip to Britain since becoming artistic director at the Gorki. The Q&A will be led by Anselm Heinrich.
The event is generously supported by the Goethe Institut Glasgow and I think there is hospitality (?).
