A brilliant opportunity for cultural professionals or anyone dedicated to make the most out of two festival days! The Pro Deal includes two performances and the Festival Conference. On day one you will experience a beautiful, poetic and personal performance by Rokia Traoré who moves skilfully between acoustic folk music from Mali and rock-riffing tuareg blues, jazz and pop. On day two you’ll get two-and-a-half hours of Schaubühne Berlin and Thomas Ostermeiers version of Ibsen´s dark satire, An Enemy of the People, in a frightfully contemporary setting. We´ll see you in August!

The Audience in focus?
This year’s conference, The Audience in Focus?, is about the audience and the possibilities and challenges it involves working with the audience in focus. To welcome a broader group of people, from different backgrounds and conditions, often mean that we have to question our habitual models and structures.
Among the presenters are Heather Maitland, one of the most renowned consultants in Audience Development in Europe who will talk about what cultural institutions and practitioners can gain from working audience focused. Alan Brown is a researcher and consultant and will talk about the relation between what we present and the setting we present it in. Dawn Walton, Artistic Director and founder of Eclipse Theatre in Sheffield will discuss their work with a diverse led approach. Andrew McIntyre, co-founder of Morris Hargreaves McIntyre, one of the worlds leading organizations in cultural segmentation, will present and launch the study Kultursegment Sverige, which is the largest comprehensive study of the Swedish arts and culture market ever.
The following shows are included:

Rokia Traoré moves skillfully between acoustic folk music from Mali and rock-riffing tuareg blues, jazz and pop. Her albums are praised by the critics and she tours the world in a variety of constellations. In Dream Mandé-Djata she mounts the stage as a story-teller in a performance based on Griot, the ancient West African narrative tradition. Experience a beautiful, poetic and personal performance piece.

Schaubühne returns to the festival! Schaubühne in Berlin is considered one of the most outstanding stages in Europe for contemporary theatre. This year the company brings us Thomas Ostermeier’s version of Ibsen’s dark satire, An Enemy of the People, seething with topical references. How are truth and fake truths valued in our current political context?
