Documentary theatre in British theatre has rooted, mostly unacknowledged, in the regional theatre in the 80s. Artists found its attraction in the 90s, it gained tremendous focus after 2000. From amateur to professional theatre groups, for example, DV8, a lot more artists, who are not solely theatre practitioners, devote themselves into the documentary theatre. Germany is the birthplace of documentary theatre, thanks to the effort from Weiss, Brecht and Piscator, it has rooted deeply in German theatre since the 1930s, and evolves in diverse forms and content nowadays.

The artistic director Mr Hoi-fai Wu and the dramaturg Ms Sim-fong Lai will visit London and Berlin in May, conducting in-depth study trip on the new development of documentary theatre. Apart from seeing recent productions, they will meet with scholars and artists. Their discussion will be filmed, together with the show reviews plus the most update information about the artists and theatre groups, a web page archive of the documentary theatre will be set up for public research. Besides, Mr Wu and Ms Lai will share their learning in the conference in July.
