30TH INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S THEATER FESTIVAL SUBOTICA
14th THEATER ART RESEARCH FORUM FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH, SUBOTICA
TIME AND RESPONSIBILITY IN THE THEATER FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH
The Children's Theater Festival in Subotica is an opportunity for researchers from different countries to gather during the Festival days and present their research and projects. Also, with the plays performed during the Festival, Subotica becomes an important place where researchers and theater experts meet with creators of theater plays for children and youth from all over the world. The goal of this gathering is to improve the theater for children and youth.
Theatrical art greatly contributes to the quality upbringing of children. Therefore, the time that children and youth spend in theatres is proportional to the quality of the contents they are introduced to. Various contents have been created for children and youth aiming to achieve an aesthetic or educational goal. Also, techniques and approaches in performances are part of the responsibility of those who create theater contents. Therefore, the 14th Forum for the Research of Theater Art for Children and Youth at the 30th International Festival of Children's Theater in Subotica is directed towards research on Time and Responsibility in Theater for Children and Youth.
Possible sub-topics and frameworks:
Access to time as a measure of responsibility in theater for children and youth
Time as a creative act in theater for children and youth
Design of time and space in the theater for children and youth
Time and play in the theater for children and youth
Time as a phenomenon
Responsibility and creation in theater for children and youth
Responsibility and education in theater for children and youth
Responsibility and growing up
Responsibility and use of technology in theater for children and youth
Time and responsibility in different cultures
Access to stage language through time and responsibility
The language of time and its perception
Time, responsibility and environment
Time and rhythm in the stage space
Time and responsibility in group work
Time and responsibility in heritage interpretation
The 14th Theater Arts Research Forum for Children and Youth will be an opportunity to learn about the interpretation of time and responsibility in theater environments around the world. The Jubilee 30th Children's Theater Festival in Subotica will welcome researchers ready to accept a responsible interpretation of time in theater for children and youth.
