Controversy & Theatre w. Lily Climenhaga

Ep. 85

Dramaturg Lily Climenhaga joins me from Germany to talk about her work & research on Swiss theatre director Milo Rau.

We discuss how artists utilize theatrical formats to maximize their impact on audiences, we talk about the balancing act of being a provocative artist without being an egotistical monster, and we look at how controversy can be a useful tool in an artist’s strategy.

Be sure to support Lily’s work on translating Rau’s Global Realism and learn more about Milo Rau from the International Institute of Political Murder.
