Livestreaming Dispatches from Hungary—Lecture and Conversation featuring Budapest-based Theatre Critic Noémi Herczog with Philip Arnoult and Ramona Ostrowski

The Center for International Theatre Development presents Dispatches from Hungary—a lecture and conversation featuring Budapest-based Theatre Critic Noémi Herczog with Philip Arnoult and Ramona Ostrowski livestreaming from Emerson College in Boston on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv Thursday 1 November 2018 at 9 a.m. PDT (Los Angeles) / 12 p.m. EDT (New York) / 16:00 UTC +0 (London) / 17:00 UTC +1 (Budapest). 

Noémi Herczog brings news, updates, insights from Budapest and the provinces as the 2018-2019 cranks up. A much-valued chronicler of the evolving independent theatre scene, Herczog’s recently published essay “The Politician as an Artist,” detailing the recent trends in the tense relationship between theatre and politics, has been widely circulated.
