‘and then the doors opened again’

David Weber-Krebs
NO(W)WORRIES

What will happen on your first theatre visit after the lockdown?

'and then the doors opened again' is a collective act of imagination about the possible futures of theatre written from the moment of the Covid-19 lockdown. This unique project brings together 75 different visions by artists, scholars, curators and spectators, created in response to a question sent to them by artist and curator David Weber-Krebs in the middle of the first wave of Covid-19 in Europe: what will happen on your first theatre visit after the lockdown?

The question is an invitation to imagine the future of theatre from this very specific moment when theatres were closed and it was not clear how, and when and even if they would open again. 'and then the doors opened again' is a compilation of imaginings about the future of theatre and a handbook for theatre after Covid-19.
