Omschrijving In the contemporary globalised world, integrated performing arts festivals play a key role within the creative industries, shaping artistic trends and fostering a cosmopolitan vision of culture via international dialogue and exchange. Through specific case studies, the course analyses the relationship of theatre festivals to their local, national, and global contexts, taking into account the interconnections between artistic practices and contemporary economies of cultural production. The course also traces the history of the major European theatre festivals, focusing on their institutional and cultural role in celebrating national traditions, promoting political ideologies, and strengthening a sense of a shared European culture in line with the project of European integration. The course utilises different theoretical approaches to enable students to analyse the effect of theatrical performances experienced within festivals, but also to understand festivals themselves as cultural performances with a community-building function.
