Minorities (Self)Representation in Theatre | HowlRound Theatre Commons

by California Digital News


This roundtable was part of the Roma Heroes – VI. International Roma Theatre Festival, which showcases six performances from diverse European Roma theatres (Hungary, Romania, Italy, Sweden). The aim of which is to present and preserve the values of the theatre and dramatic heroes of the largest ethnic minority in Europe, highlighting the challenges the members of this minority face because of segregative and discriminatory practices—which offend minority rights. Besides the performances and related audience discussions at this festival, workshops are held for theatre artists, academics, and critics so that they can understand more deeply and authentically the importance of ethnic self-representation in theatre and can use relevant aspects, tools, and facts in their work. During the workshops, together with the participants, we will further discuss the main aspects and questions of Roma theatre representation. These have been previously collected by interethnic theatre artists, academics, and critics in the frame of our earlier series of workshops implemented together with, the oldest theatre journal in Hungary, and the Eötvös Loránd University Theatre Department.
