Diversify - Sweden


Diversity, Community theatre & Social Change! Outstanding Reflections by Jonas Jarl. We’re glad to have Jonas as one of our esteemed guest speakers in the panel of Diversify.

About Jonas Jarl:

'Jonas Jarl, Artistic director. Jonas Jarl is the founder and Artistic director of Södra Communityteatern (The Southern Community Theatre) and has for more than 20 years been working as a playwright and director for several leading Theaters in Sweden; such as Folkteatern i Gävle, Malmö Opera, Riksteatern, Norrbottensteatern, Tornedalsteatern, Helsingborgs Stadsteater, Swedish Radio Theatre, Botkyrka Community Theatre and many more. The focal point in his work is to give voice to life experiences normally not heard on stage. His approach is to work for social change through Community theatre. The Community Theatre project erupts from stories told by the local people in a local context. The citizens’ life stories represent the fundament and the legitimacy of the project. Through dialogs with young citizens, the first task is to find out how they want to use the platform that the theatre stage offers. In the process hopefully as many as possible will make the journey from receiver to co-creator. The intention is to make this a large scale Community Theatre project that includes the whole Skåne region.'
