Providing advocacy & resources for the field of theatre for young audiences.

Barry Kornhauser


Barry attended the 13th ASSITEJ World Congress/Festival Tromso, Norway in 1999.

From his report:

Receiving ASSITEJ/USA support to attend the ASSITEJ World Congress/ Festival in Norway provided me with an unparalleled opportunity to investigate the processes utilize d by other (particularly Scandinavian) theatre writers in translating a play from initial vision to dramatic text and, ultimately, to a production that speaks meaningfully to young audiences.   Over the course of ten days in Tromso (June 10-19), I experienced an intense and intensely edifying theatrical immersion, viewing some 20 plays from 9 different countries, participating in 7 workshops and seminars conducted by leaders in our field, and meeting personally with 12 theatre educators and/or writer/directors whose work was represented at the festival.
