Dramático is organising and hosting the first part of its new European Dramaturgical Residency Programme. Together with the Lietuvos Nacionalinis Dramos Teatras in Lithuania, the Belgian Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg (KVS) in Brussels, and the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin, the initiative aims to get the six participants proposed by the organising institutions to write a play under the slogan Futures that will never happen.
Thus, the Centro Dramático Nacional (CDN), the Lietuvos Nacionalinis Dramos Teatras (Vilnius), and the Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg (KVS) in Brussels have selected two residents, each with the aim of developing a writing process that will run from February to November. The programme includes a one-week stay in each of these theatres, during which a series of activities designed by the selected persons from the host country will take place. The Maxim Gorki Theatre in Berlin will also host the group of residents for a week, coinciding with the programme of the prestigious Berlin Theatertreffen. Chile’s Nicolás Lange and Spain’s Eva Mir will take part for the CDN, while the KVS has proposed Rachida Lamrabet and Carolina Bianchi, and Lietuvos Nacionalinis Dramos Teatras, Natalka Vorozhbyt and Žygimantas Kudirka.
Madrid hosted the first part of the programme between 27 February and 5 March, within the framework of the Dramático Weekend Pro. In autumn 2023, a final meeting will be held again in Madrid to share and evaluate the work undertaken and the results of the programme. To organise this new initiative of European scope, Dramático has the support of the Coordination Office for the Spanish Presidency of the European Union (OCPUE).
