“National Theatre, Identity and (Geo)politics”

The article deals with the historical emergence and social role of national theatres. It also explains the terminological differences between the notions of national, people’s and state theatres in different language environments and historical periods. Using examples from the former Yugoslavia, where 35 national theatres were active in 1990, and the foundation of the third Slovene National Theatre in Nova Gorica (in 2003), the paper examines how national theatres have been connected with mechanisms of social control and what the role has been of ethnic, geographical and political denotations in the names of theatres. Also considered is the massive founding of national theatres in the former Yugoslavia as a symptom of the decay of the state and the growing ethnopluralism. Finally, the approaches of contemporary theatre creators in Slovenia (Janez Janša, Igor Štromajer, NSK and Andrej Rozman – Roza) to the issues of identity are presented, as well as the role of national theatre in the period of transnationalism, globalisation and mass media.

“Nacionalno gledališče, identiteta in (geo)politika”

Prispevek obravnava zgodovinsko in družbeno vlogo nacionalnih gledališč. Pojasnjuje tudi terminološke razlike med pojmi narodno, ljudsko in državno gledališče v različnih jezikovnih okoljih in zgodovinskih obdobjih. Na primeru bivše Jugoslavije, kjer je leta 1990 delovalo 35 nacionalnih gledališč, in ustanovitve tretjega Slovenskega narodnega gledališča v Novi Gorici 2003 analizira, kako so nacionalna gledališča povezana z mehanizmi družbenega nadzora in kakšna je vloga etničnih, geografskih in političnh oznak v imenih gledališč. Množično ustanavljanje nacionalnih gledališč v bivši Jugoslaviji obravnava kot simptom razpada države in naraščajočega etnopluralizma. V zaključku predstavlja, kako se sodobni gledališki ustvarjalci na Slovenskem (Janez Janša, Igor Štromajer, NSK in Andrej Rozman – Roza) opredeljujejo do identitetnih vprašanj ter kakšna je vloga nacionalnega gledališča v dobi transnacionalizma, globalizacije in množičnih medijev.

Schreib dein Lied! aims to focus on our relationship to the German #language in all its cultural and social forms. Our language is shaped by all those who acquire it and make use of it. It is as diverse as our society and only in all its forms the language of the 'people'. These heterogeneous forms are to be brought back into the #song, into the canon of cultural exchange between people who live here." 🎵 Oliver #Augst: vocals, composition | Alexandre #Bellenger: turntables | Arnaud #Rivière: percussion, electronics | Charlotte #Arens: dramaturgy, production management | Production/Conception: #textXTND – | Sponsored by the Kulturamt der Stadt #Frankfurt am Main, the Hessische Ministerium für Wissenschaft und #Kunst ● [img]: textXTND/
