The VI International Theatre Education Forum – Festival “Nauruz”
Dear friends, we are happy to welcome you, I want to continue: on the hospitable land of Tatarstan, but this year, 2020, we are setting up a meeting in the limitless space of the Internet, which gives you the opportunity to keep on communicating in difficult times of restrictive measures.
We inform you that the VI international theatre and education forum-festival "Nauruz"... WILL TAKE PLACE!
We thought for a long time and decided not to cancel or postpone the educational program, but to run it in an online format as planned.
As you know, every year we set a specific topic on which the work of the Forum's educational laboratories is based. The hero of the past "Nauruz" was the TEXT. The text as a basis, the tool, and the result of creativity.
Defining the problems of the VI forum, together with the International Theatre Institute (ITI) UNESCO and the World Theatre Training Institute AKT-ZENT we planned to consider the issue of «Theatre Training in Hyperspace» under the motto «Assuming the future - shaping the future», discuss the concept of hybrid education, exchange views on online education: its limitless possibilities and application features in the theatrical art, its advantages and disadvantages.
Two years have passed, and quite unexpectedly for all of us, the future has defined not only the future but overnight it has become our present. When forming a new program, we could not have imagined that the planned topics would become an occasion not only for theorizing but also a guide for action, not only a subject for discussion but also an actual reality.
We accept the challenge of time and invite you to join the Forum in an online format and not give up the opportunity to gain invaluable professional knowledge from world-famous teachers, to get acquainted with the positive possibilities of digitalization of life and professional space in practice.
For you, the participants, and for us, the organizers and teachers, the current, VI, the Forum will turn into an interesting experiment. This kind of large laboratory work will allow you to discover and use hidden creative resources, diversify professional tools, open new horizons for the dissemination of theatrical knowledge and its practical application.
We wish everyone fruitful work, a stable connection, and new cyber-theatrical experiences in the hyperspace of theatre education! See you again offline!
