Global Theatre Week

In this series of conversations with global experts, the idea of language as a vehicle for transmitting knowledge and artistry will be examined through a wide range of perspectives. Join us for an exciting journey as we use the foundational ideas and concepts of language as our point of departure for these exciting events.

Politics of Recognition: Breaking Down the Colonial Theatre Framework

Theatrical storytelling modes germinate from a given socio-cultural environment thus they are models of consciousness. However, in an age of globalization, cultural contact and exchange often reminds us that cultures do not meet on an equal ground. Points of contact and exchange are mitigated by colonial legacy and the enforcement of dominance. Pam Patel, Artistic Director of MT Space, Mumbi Tindyebwa Otu, Artistic Director at Obsidian Theatre and others consider access and politics of recognition in this conversation moderated by Mathias Orhero, Department of English at McGill University.
