Theatre as Democracy

July 6, 2014

David Greig discusses his role curating the National Theatre of Scotland’s Great Yes, No, Don’t Know Five Minute Theatre Show which takes place from 5pm on Monday 23rd until 5pm on Tuesday 24th June at Five Minute Theatre and in venues across Scotland. “Theatre demands you have dialogue… that you have the other point of view contained in the work.” Among the many topics he discusses is how the growth of theatre grew in tandem with performance in Ancient Greek – and how the value in seeing the other person’s point of view that is intrinsic to democracy is shared by theatre. Presented by Ryan Van Winkle and produced by Colin Fraser of Culture Laser Productions. With financial assistance from Creative Scotland.
