Since the 1980s, the theatrical activity around Istanbul has continued with breaking points, interruptions and transformations until the present day where we currently have an active theatre scene. Looking back on thirty years left behind, one can easily say a path for contemporary theatre has formed in Turkey. However, despite all its vitality, there are not many works that emphasise the identity of contemporary theatre. The starting point of this panel stems from such a need. Theorists and artists from both theoretical and practical fields will take part in the two-day panel organised in collaboration with New Text New Theatre Festival.

With valuable collaboration of Arter.
