ENCOUNTERS OF NEW CONTEMPORARY DRAMATURGIES
NOV 15TH TO 17TH
MONDAY TO WEDNESDAY
WINTER GARDEN - SÃO LUIZ TEATRO MUNICIPAL (LISBON)
The project Encounters of New Contemporary Dramaturgies set its goal on promoting the dramaturgies of our time, namely the Portuguese dramaturgy, as well as offering a space for the European dramaturgies through the partnership Corps de Textes Europe, a platform of promotion of new playwrights. During three days – between translation workshops, debates, conversations and seminars – actors and directors will read new texts and thus introduce a vast panel of stylistic and procedural tendencies of theatre writing. The readings will have different levels of performance, they can go from a simple reading in a conventional room to the performative reading close to the notion of a show, whether in theatre spaces or in alternative spaces in the heart of the city of Lisbon. The Encounters will serve the purpose of gathering authors, directors, actors, as well as students of performing arts from all over the country around the contemporary quality of the word, introducing the public, during those three intensive days, to the possibilities and utopias of the dramaturgy of our time.
