LARA STAAL (NL) is a curator, maker, researcher and writer. Lara’s work focuses on how theatre can provide a platform for political reflection and mobilization while producing alliances between different domains. She has developed works such as “The Evening of the Anger” (together with rapper Gideon Everduim) and “Europe on Trial” (together with hu- man right activist Yoonis Osman Nuur) among others. In 2020-2021 she will develop the performance “Dissident” at NTGent; a class given by teenagers, who are falling out of the school system, instructing the audience on discipline, disobedience, expectations and success. Since 2017 Lara has been a tutor at DAS Theatre in Amsterdam and continues to write regularly about art and politics and the relation with society.
