The Convenors invite potential participants to address the topics below,

Where, when and why did the 'New Wave' begin?
International and local influences: ideological, political, social, 
theatrical, personal
Big Ideas - what were they and where did they come from
Key Productions, Plays, Writers, Directors, Venues, Individuals
Processes: ensembles, working methods
Language: the importance of finding our own voice - and do we still 
speak with it?
Trajectories - what happened after 1970?
Impact: are we still in the aftermath of the New Wave? Is it time to 
remember but move on? Have we moved on?
What if it hadn't happened?

Proposals in the form of academic papers, performances, performed 
papers, readings, manifestos, debates, panels, and anything else in the 
spirit of the New Wave are welcome.
