The Sala Beckett is a space for the theatre-related creation, training and experimentation, devoted especially to promoting contemporary playwriting and to disseminating Catalan theatrical authorship.
A meeting point for theatrical authors with other stage creators and professionals from different spheres and disciplines, the Sala Beckett hosts intense activity in show production and programming, courses and labs, lectures, meet-ups and all kinds of activities involving exchange, thinking and debate on playwriting and the contemporary world.
The Fundació Sala Beckett/Obrador Internacional de Dramatúrgia is its steering body which, with a board of trustees formed by 12 playwrights, ensures compliance with the founding aims and guarantees the organisation’s transparency and democratic functioning.
The current members of the Board of Trustees are: Sergi Belbel (President), Carles Batlle, Josep Maria Benet i Jornet, Marta Buchaca, Toni Casares, Jordi Galceran, Juan Mayorga, Pau Miró, David Plana, Pere Riera, José Sanchis Sinisterra and Mercè Sarrias.
The Sala Beckett is one of Barcelona City Council’s Art Factories and also has the support of the Catalan Government’s Department of Culture and INAEM (National Institute of Performing Arts and Music).
