Workshop for Authors under 40 (Phase 1 of the project)
Led by Davide Carnevali
2-11 July 2021
Time schedule: 10 am – 1.30 pm / 3 pm – 7.30 pm
The workshop will alternate group sessions and one-to-one meetings. The aim is to allow each participant to carve out an individual space to work with the Master on specific aspects of their project, as well as to leave everyone enough time to write. During the group meetings, topics of general interest will be addressed, with particular attention to the political significance of writing for the theatre today and the dialogue between the content of the work and the dramaturgical form. During the individual meetings, the participants will be supported in developing their text also through reading suggestions and the watching of videos, which can foster the creation process.
