Course description

This workshop will be virtually.

The creator of shows such as Watching Peeping Tom or Solitud proposes a course centred, more than ever, on textual scriptwriting and the different ways of understanding it.

Once I wrote, for an article in the journal (pausa.), that in my work as a stage director, the text is a material often converted into images and emotions, with which I establish a relationship of intimacy and submission. That I don’t want the text to enslave me or hinder me, that in some way I convert the text into images and it is based on these that I work on the stage performance, but at the same time that I cling to the text as though it were a refuge, because it is something solid that enables me to develop the creation with greater freedom. It is impossible for me to imagine the texts beyond their lived shows. From the moment that I work on them, they become my own, and I become their author.

For this course, I want to return to this reflection to investigate ways that we can relate in performance terms with the presence or absence of the text, always understanding it as a rich and living stage material. Our starting point will be our own or others’ theatrical or non-theatrical texts, or stage ideas or diverse dramaturgies. We will write, we will read, and we will also be creating live, to generate material that is both stage-related and textual, dramaturgies that link the text to a specific stage proposal, while always seeking our own personal voice.

This will be a practical course, aimed at anyone interested in the performing arts in general.
