Kristian Smeds in Conversation

Finnish stage director Kristian Smeds's work for the theatre is synonymous with artistic, intellectual, and political debate in Finland and abroad, unsettling an easy equilibrium between national and larger European perspectives; destabilizing notions of national identities, his stagings provocatively reflect on the power of theatre as the vehicle for their dissemination. 
Deutsches Haus, December 1, 7pm.
