CONFLICT ZONES ZONES DE CONFLIT Conflict Zones | Zones de Conflit—a three-year programme of the Union des Théâtres de l‘Europe (UTE) exploring the conflicts that have been shaping Europe since the beginning of the Great War until today. Between 2014 and 2017, UTE member theatres worked on various conflicts that have challenged Europe since the outbreak of World War I until today. In the course of this programme, the theme of “conflict zones” grew ever more important. Conflict Zones | Zones de Conflit delved into this issue in a fusion of historical research and artistic exploration, in the form of a myriad of different events and projects that both dealt with relevant socio-political questions and the role of culture and theatre, as well as invested in long-term pro-

fessional and artistic relationships. This multi-disciplinary endeavour comprised a multitude of events over the course of three years that ranged from theatrical productions in all member theatres, which were also shown in the context of festivals, to conferences, roundtables, assemblies, masterclasses, residencies, and think-tanks. All of these activities particularly fostered young and emerging artists, who thus broadened their artistic skills as well as their professional international network. Finally, Conflict Zones | Zones de Conflit yielded a new online theatre magazine which is a platform for young European cultural journalists who cover UTE events across Europe: conflict-zones.reviews
