Teātra nākotne ir tas, ko neesam iepriekš redzējuši. Ar Haineru Gēbelsu sarunājas Zane Kreicberga

Saruna ar vācu pedagogu, režisoru un komponistu Haineru Gēbelsu

Teātra Vēstnesis magazine devotes the issue to the future of performing arts education. Latvia is currently experiencing a generational change in theatre pedagogy, but we can see that we are still following a well-established tradition, with a strong emphasis on learning craft skills and basing the fundamentals of acting and directing on Stanislavski's system. This is partly due to the fact that Latvia has a strong tradition of institutional repertory theatre, which requires a corresponding amount of manpower. On the other hand, it is evident that theatre practice has changed in the last twenty years, with the growth of interdisciplinary projects and performances created in the process. However, new ideas and approaches have been slow to enter the educational system. The Institute of Applied Theatre at Justus Liebig University in Giessen[1] might be one of the few examples where education has influenced the practice of the performing arts: graduates of the Giessen school often form prominent theatre groups such as Rimini Protokoll, She She Pop and many others.
