Playwrights in Conversation
TUESDAY, MAY 25
AT 12 PM ET / 4 PM GMT / 6 PM CET
Presented in partnership with Origin Theatre Company as part of European Month of Culture
In 2021, theatre is coming back to our global stages after a year in the dark. But after the stories and narratives of 2020, and the resurgence in the fight for social justice, what will the return to writing and producing theatre look like?
As part of European Month of Culture, SATC is thrilled to partner with Origin Theatre Company to host a panel featuring playwrights from SATC’s latest project, Our Future Stories, where we will discuss the artistic process, the act of making art in a pandemic, and much more.
Panelists: Camara Lundestad Joof, Eva Rún Snorradóttir & Saaramaria Kuittinen
Moderated by Ida Victoria Biering, SATC’s Dramaturg & Literary Manager
Introduction by Hallfridur Thora Tryggvadottir, SATC’s Artistic Director
OUR FUTURE STORIES
In Our Future Stories, seven playwrights from Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden reflect on how the pandemic has and will impact the stories we will tell on stage. Each playwright joins #UN75, the world’s largest conversation on our collective future and a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, with a short audio experience.
