Theatre and Democracy. Institutional Practices in Polish Theatre
In the third issue of Polish Theatre Journal, we examine institutional practices in Polish theatre in the context of political and social changes. We analyse conditions for freedom of artistic expression and of mechanisms of censorship; we observe significant conflicts and struggles in theatre life, and scrutinize the entanglement of economic, political and aesthetic determinants. We query the possibility of making theatre institutions into social laboratories in which cultural practices for the new democratic order can be developed.
