 Fill in the Blank… and Celebrate!
Ernie Nolan, member of the Executive Committee of ASSITEJ

Early in my TYA career, I heard a veteran artistic director address their board. “It’s so hard!,” was the first thing they said when they addressed the group. I couldn’t believe it. I was shocked. Here was someone I incredibly admired, who ran a huge million-dollar theatre company. “How could it be so hard?,” I thought.

Flash forward years later. Little did I know. I would run my own million-dollar theatre. And who would have thought there would be a pandemic and the aftermath to navigate?

Now I understand. As a theatre artist and administrator, I can say for myself, “It’s so hard!”

Yet while it’s been hard, it’s also been so many other positive things as well. The brilliant composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim was a master at showing the complexity of various situations. Little Red Riding Hood sings about being “excited AND scared” in INTO THE WOODS. The husbands in COMPANY share about being “sorry, grateful” as well as being “regretful, happy.”

As we come to the end of another year, I feel like I could write my own song lyrics in the style of Mr. Sondheim. It’s been hard, but it’s also been a time of growth… enlightening … educational … inspirational. The list goes on and on.

I would love to know how you would fill in the blank for yourself:

It’s been hard, but it’s been _______________________.

As we be adieu to 2022, I hope that we can take our challenges and our triumphs and celebrate all that we’ve accomplished. Afterall, in the words of Mr. Sondheim, “Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos.”

Radical Dramaturgies: a path to democratic performing arts for early childhoods
 

by Viviane Juguero

Democracy is a central theme in recent speeches in various knowledge areas and different realities worldwide. The arts field for children echoes this socio-historic moment and the commitment of being democratic is declared in many diverse local and international discourses. In this direction, in 2020, the International Association of Theatre for Children and Youth (ASSITEJ) launched a Manifesto developed through various online meetings engaging hundreds of performing arts professionals across the globe (ASSITEJ, 2020). The document is addressed to citizens, governments, political parties, institutions and authorities related to the development of arts and children's education and welfare. The ASSITEJ’s manifesto is based on the convention on the child's rights of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, especially articles thirteen and thirty-one (UNICEF, 2002). In the same direction, the institutional project Scenekunst til ALLE små (Dybwik and Halle, 2020) also emphasizes its intention of being democratic by presenting theatrical performances for all children from zero to five years old in Stavanger city. By analyzing the context of this example through a radical heteroscientific methodology, the present study proposes grounded criteria to promote democratic artistic projects for Early Childhoods.
