Open Call - A stroll with David Weber-Krebs

Are you - or rather, were you - a regular theatre goer? How do you feel about no longer being able to see a live performance? And what do you think your first theatre visit will be like when the doors of the theatres will open again? That is what David Weber-Krebs wants to know.

In the middle of the first lockdown, David Weber-Krebs sent an email to artists, scholars, curators, and spectators belonging to different art communities. He asked them a simple question: What will happen on your first theatre visit after the lockdown?. This exchange resulted in the book And Then the Doors Opened Again.

In March, David wants to direct the same question to Kaaitheater spectators, during a walk and talk around Kaai building. He isn’t sure if he misses the theatre, but he thinks about it – and wants to know if you think about it too.

Would you be interested in having a conversation with him about the current role of theatre, and being a spectator now, before, and in the future?
