The idea for Platform: An East European Performing Arts Companion
arose over years of working with critics, historians and theorists of
theatre from the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, who have
been meeting since 2008 at conferences and workshops devoted to
questions of Theatre After the Change in postcommunist countries.
In particular, we have examined the question of how the performing
arts – from the artistic and organisational side – in each country
handle issues such as elaboration of the past and responsibility
for the present. These debates, held first in Budapest and later in
Kraków, and taken up during various academic and festival meetings,
concerned both the history of theatre in academic discourse
and historical narrative conducted in the theatre; both the political
entanglement of theatre in the past and its contemporary engagement
in public life. All of these questions were considered both at the
level of possible general statements and taking into consideration
local contexts and the specifics of a given country.
