Writing the scene

Daria Deflorian and Antonio Tagliarini Aimed at: Playwriting, Direction and Performance for Dramático Professionals

16-19 JANUARY 2023 from 10 am to 2 pm Full details of the workshop will be sent by email when the registration period opens and only to Dramático Professionals related to the professional profile of the workshop, in this case, playwriting, direction and performance.



A workshop for theatre professionals designed to stimulate writing that is born and articulated on stage. Without forgetting the planning—intuitions arising elsewhere—with the help of Italian creators Daria Deflorian and Antonio Tagliarini, we will view the stage as a blank page to be written with the body, words and things.
