CONGRESS THEME: UNIVERSITY THEATER AS SOCIAL AND CULTURAL AGENT The International University Theater Association (IUTA-AITU) is pleased to announce that its 13th World Congress will be held in Manila, Philippines from August 25 to August 29, 2020. Organized by the IUTA Philippine Center in partnership with the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), the 13th congress seeks to provide a major forum to discuss the role of the university theater as social and cultural agent in the present time. A considerable body of academic and practice knowledge has certainly been accumulated on these topical areas over the past 12 congresses: University Theater in general, repertoire and performance practice, research, pedagogy, cross-cultural influence. These ideas and knowledge developed from specific cultural, economic and social situations and environment, could find application and relevance in a new, dynamic context. A new economic, social and cultural setting is therefore needed to test the boundary of relevance and application of this present body of knowledge. This new boundary is how University Theater has been and can be used for social transformation. The 13th Congress offers a variety of opportunities for contributors. It includes an academic conference, workshops, discussions, theater festival of performances and a poster display of theater projects and research.
Good work to all. Vito Minoia / IUTA-AITU President
