The Right to Respond
Swept away by the surge of cultural stimulation? Wanting a deeper understanding of the artists, the performances and the festival?
When and Where:
Tues 16, Wed 17 and Fri 19 at 17h00, The New Space Theatre, 44 Long Street
The works on the ITC programme address several important and intriguing issues thrown up by the HUMAN RITE theme. What questions have they raised about our society? How do they speak to the dynamics of our City? What have the creators had to grapple with, and what artistic paths has ITC opened up through the concrete maze of the CBD?
In the interests of enhancing our understanding of the performances and fostering critical dialogue around the arts, ITC holds three public forums.
On Tuesday 16 and Friday 19 renowned thinkers and cultural players respond to the works and interpret the Festival programme. Three participating artists will also discuss their pieces, and engage with your observations and questions.
On Wednesday 17 we look at curating festivals, the ITC concept, and the New Collaborative Works (NCW) model. Panellists include the ITC curator, guests from the UK Visiting Arts delegation, and artists involved in NCW.
Afterwards mull over it all with artists, critics and fellow culture lovers at the ITC social hub, Boo Radley’s, 62 Hout Street.
