Turning the Page: Creating New Writing
Organised by the University of Reading and the V&A Museum, London
Friday 13th to Saturday 14th September 2013 at the University of Reading
In the last of three conferences organized by the AHRC-funded project, '"Giving Voice to the Nation: The Arts Council of Great Britain and the Development of Theatre and Performance in Britain 1945 - 1995"', we seek to chart and explore the peaks and troughs of New Writing since the advent of state subsidy to the arts. With a specific focus upon fostering dialogue across the decades, this conference will bring together academics, practitioners, funders and policy-makers to share knowledge, perspectives and insights into the histories, practices and discourses of 'New Writing'.
Confirmed speakers include: playwrights Roy Williams, David Edgar, Timberlake Wertenbaker, Michael Raab (translator and former dramaturge at the State Theatre Stuttgart and Munich Kammerspiele, Germany), Jonathan Petherbridge (London Bubble Theatre), Steven Atkinson (Artistic Director, High Tide Theatre Festival) and Professor Dan Rebellato.
