Drama for Life cordially invites you for Performing Democracy: The Fire, The Fight, The Fiction

13th Drama for Life Conference and Festival, in partnership with NTNU. 

This year our Conference and Festival seeks to respond to current events within the Arts sector by asking pertinent questions around DEMOCRACY, inclusion and performance work that challenges post-democratic conditions, corruption and uninspiring leadership. 

Our Conference and Festival marks the completion of a 3-year research project with NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) and includes the launch of our latest research publication - an open-access book of research findings from the Theatre in Democracy Project.

Please save the dates 16th-19th August and, in particular, our opening ceremony which takes place on Monday 16th August from 16:00-18:30 (SA Time)
