Gadda è teatro | Scholarship is engagement

Gadda may have never written for the theatre but his work travels best in performance. Five interconnected events make up Edinburgh 2012. These five platforms – Gaddus Scholars, On becoming militant, Gadda va alla guerra, International Gadda Juniors and the Award Ceremony – all in turn exploit and generate a stage. In this way, through actively engaging others we explore how we too, like Gadda, go to war with our times on issues of identity, social norm, citizenship, cultural mobility and plurality. Our idea is quite straightforward. If Gadda is theatre, scholarship must be engagement.
