SemperDialogue

Current social developments as well as the heated debates involving the arts remind us how important it is to remain in dialogue. Three times this season, Semper Zwei will thus become a platform for discussion with our audience. Based on a topic from a selected production in our programme, we will also invite renowned experts to talk about a contemporary political issue, which will then be discussed in small groups in the auditorium together with a moderator. We look forward to hearing your opinions!
