Round table: Sexual and Psychological Abuse in Theatre, Study processes and Education
Organised by: The Association of Theatre Critics and Researchers of Slovenia (DGKTS)
The recent exposures of sexual and psychological abuse in theatre and education that entered the realm of public reflection are a crucial step towards collective awareness about this pertinent – even pernicious – problem. The existing practices of artistic and educational processes often emanate from strong hierarchical structures and overpowering patriarchal patterns. Such structures and patterns can easily and frequently disguise "invisible" forms, such as the abuse of power and sexual and
psychological harassment of the subordinates, as art and advancement.
The participants of the round table will discuss the complexity, danger and prosecution of such abuse and harassment. Recently, the Screen Actors Guild of Slovenia (DSI) and the Slovenian Association of Dramatic Artists (ZDUS-SADA) prepared a questionnaire about sexual harassment and violence. During the round table, members will present the preliminary results of the questionnaire and evaluate the types of violence the workers in performing and audio-visual arts and students of those arts
are exposed to during their work or study processes.
The event is organised in collaboration with DSI and ZDUS.
