The aim of this agora is not to put something in order, but rather to invent social opportunities. With workshops, lectures, performances, interventions and publications, fourteen very diverse artists from twelve different countries invite you to share in their working process and discuss worries, knowledge and actions around the concept of public space – a process, which finally leads to the première of “Shakespeare’s As You Like it, A Body Part”.
Agora is a project by PAF, the influential self-organised Performing Arts Forum in France, that examines the link between theatre and public space. If the village square, the agora, marks the birth of theatre, can theatre today once again contribute to demanding the public in public space?
