DIGITALNO IZDANjE FILOZOFSKOG TEATRA / DIGITAL EDITION OF PHILOSOPHICAL THEATRE - Srećko Horvat i Milo Rau

(PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR ENGLISH)

 

U okviru digitalnog izdanja Filozofskog teatra, u četvrtak, 23. aprila od 20 časova na YouTube kanalu Bitef teatra, biće organizovan treći u nizu razgovora koji će Srećko Horvat voditi sa Milom Rauom.

 

Srećko Horvat će sa Milom Rauom razgovarati o njegovoj poslednjoj predstavi „Antigona u Amazoniji“, dotičući se i mnogih globalnih problema kao što su klimatske promene i izbeglička kriza, sa ciljem da ispituju ulogu pozorišta od antike do sveta posle koronavirusa. Pitanje nije samo kako će izgledati pozorište nakon pandemije i doba socijalnog distanciranja, već i koja je uloga pozorišta u menjanju društvene realnosti.

 

MILO RAU (1977), reditelj, autor, a od sezone 2018/19. i umetnički direktor pozorišta NTGent. Kritika ga je prozvala „najuticajnijim“ (Cajt), „najnagrađivanijim“ (L Soar), „najzanimljivijim“ (Standard), i „najambicioznijim“ (Gardijan) umetnikom današnjice. Studirao je sociologiju, nemački i romanske jezike i književnost u Parizu, Berlinu i Cirihu pod mentorstvom Pjera Burdijea i Cvetana Todorova.

Godine 2017. Rau je proglašen rediteljem godine u anketi kritičara koju je sproveo časopis Dojče bine. Nosilac je dva počasna doktorata od kojih je jedan dobio 2019. godine iz oblasti pozorišta univerziteta Lundus u Švedskoj, a drugi 2020. univerziteta u Gentu u Belgiji. Rau je aktivan i kao televizijski kritičar i predavač,  a veoma je plodan i kao pisac.

DIGITALNO IZDANjE FILOZOFSKOG TEATRA

Smislimo svet iz početka

 

Za vreme trajanja vanredne situacije izazvane COVID-19, Bitef teatar je pokrenuo digitalno izdanje Filozofskog teatra. Tokom aprila meseca, svakog četvrtka od 20 časova, na YouTube kanalu Bitef teatra, uživo se organizuju razgovori sa značajnim Bitefovim pozorišnim umetnicima.

Nakon uspešnih razgovora koji su održani sa pozorišnim rediteljem Oliverom Frljićem (Zagreb) i rediteljkom i nekadašnjom selektorkom Bitefa Anjom Sušom (Stokholm), slede susreti sa vodećim imenima svetskog savremenog pozorišta čije smo predstave imali prilike da vidimo na poslednjem Bitefu - Milom Rauom (Brisel) i Štefanom Kegijem (Berlin). Razgovore će, kao i u „dobra stara vremena”, moderirati Srećko Horvat i Maja Pelević, dok će pratioci programa biti u mogućnosti da postavljaju pitanja učesnicima.

 

Filozofski teatar je projekat koji je započet sa ciljem da ponovo uspostavi blisku vezu između filozofije i pozorišta. Nastao je u Hrvatskom narodnom kazalištu u Zagrebu 2014. godine, a programa je od sezone 2019/20. na redovnom repertoaru Bitef teatra. Aktuelizuje najznačajnija pitanja današnjice i problem društava u kojima živimo.

 

Kako napominje pokretač projekta Srećko Horvat „veza između filozofije i kazališta uvijek je bila jača nego veza između filozofije i bilo kojega drugog medija.” Pozorište je takođe uvek bilo mesto za aktivno promišljanje društva i društvenih procesa, a Filozofski teatar otvara mesto za javnu diskusiju, što je u ovom trenutku više nego neophodno.

U tom smislu Horvat napominje: „U doba globalne pandemije, kada smo zatočeni u svojim kućama i moramo paziti na distancu, treba nam socijalna povezanost i kritičko mišljenje više nego ikad. Filozofski teatar zasad nastavljamo drugim sredstvima, dok se ponovo - nadam se uskoro - ne vidimo opet u pozorištu! Povratka na 'dobra stara vremena' ionako nema, jer ni ta stara vremena nisu bila dobra. Na nama je težak ali nužan zadatak da smislimo svet iz početka“.

 

(ENGLISH)

 

In the digital edition of Philosophical Theatre, on Thursday, 23rd April at 8pm, on Bitef Theatre YouTube channel, the third in the series of discussions will be held between Srećko Horvat and Milo Rau.

 

Srećko Horvat is going to talk to Milo Rau about his latest performance “Antigone in the Amazon”, while also tackling numerous global issues such as climate change and refugee crisis, in an attempt to explore the role of the theatre from the ancient times up until after the coronavirus pandemic. Not only is it questionable how theatre will look like after the pandemic and in the time of social distancing, but what the role of theatre in altering social reality is.

 

Born in 1977 in Bern, MILO RAU is a director, author and since 2018/2019 artistic director of the NTGent. Critics have proclaimed him «the most influential» (DIE ZEIT), «most awarded» (Le Soir), «most interesting» (De Standaard) or «most ambitious» (The Guardian) artist of our time. Rau studied sociology, German and Romance languages and literature in Paris, Berlin and Zurich under Pierre Bourdieu and Tzvetan Todorov. Since 2002, he has put out over 50 plays, films, books and actions. His productions have appeared on major international festivals, including the Berlin Theatertreffen, the Festival d’Avignon, the Venice Biennale Teatro, the Wiener Festwochen and Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels, and have toured more than 30 countries worldwide.

Rau has received many honours: the European Theatre Prize 2018, the Peter-Weiss-Prize 2017, the 3sat-Prize 2017, the 2017 Saarbrucken Poetry Lectureship for Drama and, in 2016, the prestigious World Theatre Day ITI Prize, as youngest artist ever after Frank Castorf and Pina Bausch. In 2017, Milo Rau was voted “Acting Director of the Year” in the critics’ survey conducted by the Deutsche Bühne. He has been awarded two honorary doctorate degrees, first in 2019 by the Theatre Department of Lunds Universitet (Sweden) and more recently in 2020 by Ghent University (Belgium). Rau is also a television critic, lecturer and a prolific writer.

DIGITAL EDITION OF PHILOSOPHICAL THEATRE

Let’s Think the World Over

 

During the state of emergency caused by the outbreak of COVID-19, Bitef Theatre has launched a digital edition of the Philosophical Theatre. Every Thursday in April, at 8pm, Bitef Theatre YouTube channel will broadcast live discussions with eminent Bitef Theatre artists.

After the successful discussions with the theatre director Oliver Frljić (Zagreb), and the theatre director and former Bitef curator Anja Suša (Stockholm), next are the meetings with the famous names of the contemporary theatre, whose performances we had an opportunity to see at the last-year’s Bitef - Milo Rau (Brussels) and Stefan Kaegi (Berlin). The discussions will be, like in the “good old times”, moderated by Srećko Horvat and Maja Pelević, while the viewers will have an opportunity to ask them questions.

 

Philosophical Theatre is a project initiated with an idea to re-establish a close relationship between philosophy and theatre. Launched at the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb in 2014, the program has been a part of the Bitef Theatre repertory since the season 2019/20. It tackles the most relevant questions of the present moment and the problem of the societies we live in.

As the initiator Srećko Horvat states, “the link between philosophy and theatre has always been much stronger than the link between philosophy and any other medium or art”. Theatre has always been a place for active deliberation of society and social processes, and Philosophical Theatre creates a space for public discussion, which is nowadays more than necessary.

In that respect, Horvat remarks: “In times of a global pandemic, when all of us are trapped at our homes and made vigilant about keeping distance, we need social interconnectedness and critical thinking more than ever. For the time being, Philosophical Theatre persists through different channels, until we - hopefully soon - get back to theatre! The return to the ‘good all days’ will never happen anyway, because the old days were never good in the first place. We are facing a difficult but necessary task of radically rethinking and reinventing the world over.”
