The system of government is at the center of the discussions. The frequent attacks on institutions of power and the rise of the extreme right in the world have put democratic practices in check. How do we reinforce sociopolitical actions in the exercise of art, on and off the stage? How to be democratic in the face of so much volatility and insecurities?
