THEORETICAL-PRACTICAL WORKSHOP
"The city as stage and dramaturgy"
(University “Universidad Andina Simón Bolivar”, Quito (Ecuador), within the framework of the Sudaka Festival, November 2018)
(Pedagogical University “Universidad Pedagógica Nacional Francisco Morazán”, San Pedro Sula (Honduras), organized together with Humboldt-Institut San Pedro Sula, December 2018)
(Espacio Centralia, Córdoba (Argentina), November 2018)

In this workshop we will examine theoretical elements of theatre and the scenic arts in relation to the urban space and non-conventional spaces. Different scenic projects will be analysed in which the city is taken as a stage. We also present the different ways in which the urban space can be taken as the basis for dramaturgy. The relationship between reality and fiction is studied, as well as how performing arts and technology are interrelated.
In the practical application, the participants are invited to perform different exercises related to the observation of urban space and the format of "Fictional Audiotour" in order to put together some sequences of a possible work.
The objectives of the seminar are: To show an overview of contemporary theatre as well as analysing how the urban environment can be seen as a stage and basis for dramaturgy, and to provide participants with a space for experimentation.

TALK AND / OR WORKSHOP
Between reality and fiction - urban space as a stage

(Forum of the event "Ciudades Visibles" (Visible Cities). Córdoba, Argentina. 2014)

(1. Congress of Dramatic Writing in La Plata. La Plata, Argentina. 2014)
(SESC Santos. Santos, Brazil. 2012)
(International Theatre Festival Cena Contemporânea. Brasilia, Brazil. 2012)
(Encounters "Encuentros AvLab", Córdoba, Argentina. 2011)


Theoretical/practical workshop aimed at giving a brief overview of the new work in the scenic arts regarding the friction between reality and fiction, a trend that has formed over the last few years. It also discusses the relationship between space (urban and otherwise) and the scenic arts, a topic that in the group's work is closely linked with the above mentioned trend. We take a deeper look at some aspects of the method of historical, sound and dramaturgical research, etc.
Participants are also given the chance to create a small practical project, experimenting with one of the methods presented.


TALK
Documentary Theatre and the Internet as a medium
(El Ranchito / Matadero Madrid. Madrid, Spain. 2012)

Through a dialogue between scenic creators Cecilia Pérez-Pradal with Cía Puctum from Madrid, and Ariel Davila and Christina Ruf of the group BiNeural-MonoKultur from Cordoba-Argentina via Skype, both groups collaborate to examine the main features of documentary-theatre and reflect on specific non-fiction and virtual scenic practices.
The fundamental issues of the Talk: to reflect on the most important features of new documentary and virtual theatre, within the framework of post-dramatic theatre, watching (on DVD) and discussing a selection of collaborative works by Puctum and BiNeural-MonoKultur, emphasizing Conectados created in El Ranchito Residency, and homo-migrator.www (of the series Virtual Performances - laboratory for virtual theatre).
