Human Rights in Italian Theater

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the UN in 1948 contains thirty articles. In a society disrupted by continuous violations of those rights we should ask ourselves what theater can do and what it is doing. How can it raise awareness? This panel offers the occasion to explore the role of theater and the urgent need for denouncing and defending human rights in Italian society as well as internationally.
Please send 250-word abstracts in English or Italian to Anna Cafaro,, by October 10, 2010 .
