Talking about it: the development of new contexts, new languages, and new cultural frameworks?
What kind of models exist, or might exist, that can respond to the kind of touring work that changes and evolves as it moves from location to location, context to context, and constituency to constituency. Creating equitable and reciprocal dialogues, networks and resources amongst artists and producers, and exploring the responsibilities of artists and producers to the contexts they are working within.
The ideas and experiences this kind of work can offer and the kinds of audiences can it offer them to.
The significance and cultural value of experimental theatre and performance practices, their relation to other disciplines and potential to affect cultural change.
The range of lineages and ideas which inform and shape contemporary radical theatre and performance making.
