XII Obrador d’estiu
Drama for the Time of Emergency
From 6th to 15th July 2017
L’Obrador d’estiu (the Summer Workshop) is one of the most important events in the Sala Beckett’s artistic and training offering.
This intensive week of courses, workshops, readings, shows and debates of an international nature on diverse aspects of playwriting and contemporary society is, deep down, the model we would like to incorporate for all year round activity at the new Sala Beckett.
The new Beckett has been conceived as a major permanent Workshop that combines creation, training, exchange, debate and thought with the aim of producing contemporary playwriting of the highest quality which responds to the concerns of our times and tackles the fundamental questions of the human condition. With teachers and participants from a wide variety of origins and backgrounds and a menu of courses, workshops and activities that is quite varied within its specialisation (which we are seeking in this case), the Obrador d’estiu has to be the meeting point offered by Barcelona to playwrights and dramaturgs to encourage the birth of vocations, ideas and projects.
