Swiss amateur theatre is characterised by a wide range of traditions, aesthetic forms, and societal functions. The presentation sheds light on qualitative and quantitative aspects of non-professional theatre in Switzerland.
Qualitative aspects: After a short contextualisation of amateur theatre within the Swiss theatre landscape we will provide examples of non-professional productions to illustrate the wide range of forms and aesthetics.
Quantitative aspects: In 2019 we continue our empiric research on Swiss amateur theatre and present the current state of our project “mapping amateur theatre companies”. Since this research is work-in-progress, not only results will be presented, but also methodology, challenges and limitations will be discussed.
