Green drama in Slovakia

Green drama in Slovakia

It is already a well-known fact that the world is dealing with a climate crisis. As a reaction to that, green topics are now slowly being introduced in all sectors of human activities, even in the theatre. Therefore, in October 2018, people from the Theatre Institute, an institution directly belonging under the Ministry of Culture, decided to launch a project called Green Drama. Two years later, in October 2020 the outcome of the project, a collection of 15 dramatic texts with environmental theme was introduced to the public during the Nová Dráma/New Drama festival. In order to find out more about the Green Dráma project, I spoke to its coordinator and theatre dramaturg Lenka Čepková.
