Saturday d. On November 24, 18, Forsøgsstationen in Copenhagen will hold a seminar on the concept of quality in theatre.

Inspired by the work of the quality committees in the children’s and youth environment in the 80s and 90s, and sensing a growing need in the theatre community to (re)find a qualified language around criticism, we are trying to put the quality discussion on the agenda.

The seminar has invited all members of the Children’s Theatre Association (BTS) former quality committees to benefit from their valuable experiences (e.g. Catherine Poher, Bodil Alling, Gitte Kath, Simon Vagn Jensen, Peter Seligmann, Michael Ramlöse, Lene Vestergaard, Biba Schwoon etc.) We hope that as many as possible from the children’s/youth theatre community as well as the wider theatre community will be willing to participate and join this important conversation.
