National conference “Lithuanian theater for children and youth: between past and future”


On 19th March we will talk about whether it is needed, why it is needed and what kind of theater is needed for children and young people, what theater critics write about performances for young audiences, how object theater is constantly with us, why it is inconvenient to talk to teenagers about violence in theater.
