WTF! 2020 FORUM – Dr Emily Beausoleil: Theatre and the Politics of Listening

Introduced by Jo Randerson

Proudly supported by TACT

Monday 7 September 6pm

Circa One

Tickets: $20 each (includes dinner)

Limited seats available. Bookings have now closed.

Join us for an evening with Dr Emily Beausoleil where she will share insights into the potent role theatre can play to foster listening, openness and shift in others. The forum will be introduced by Jo Randerson (Barbarian Productions) and draw on examples from recent Wellington theatre productions, followed by a light dinner, with drinks available for purchase.

Dr Emily Beausoleil (PhD Political Theory) is a political theorist, who explores the conditions, challenges, and possibilities of democratic engagement in diverse societies, with a particular focus on artistic and embodied strategies to facilitate listening in politics.

When direct address, debate, or argument cannot ensure one is heard, listening itself proves to be a ‘martial art.’
