What are the (artistic) demands for the future contemporary theatre maker/artist? How to sustain the artist as a maker across disciplines and methodologies? Aspects of the socially engaged artist versus the avantgarde artist – actionism or institutional critique? What role is art and the performing artist, expected to play in the future?
