Siobhan Bremer presents theatre research at Conference for Visual and Performing Arts in Athens, Greece

Posted by Judy Korn on Friday, Jul. 1, 2011


Siobhan Bremer, University of Minnesota, Morris associate professor of theatre, presented at the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) Conference for Visual and Performing Arts in Athens, Greece, in June 2011. Her presentation, “Going Green Globally,” focused on her current environmental theatre research.

“I shared my research in regard to my own work and also what other academics are doing in the United States,” says Bremer. “I made great international connections and will further my research to find out what folks in other countries are doing to be more environmentally sensitive.”

ATINER is an independent association of academics. The forum of academics and researchers from all over the world meet in Athens and exchange ideas on research and discuss future developments of their disciplines.

Bremer recently directed the Morris Theatre Discipline’s 2011 children’s show, the premiere of Sophie and the Adventures of Ice Island. Created in collaboration with playwright Forrest Musselman, the innovative, environmentally friendly production will be shown this fall on Pioneer Public Television.
