Colloquium with Remedios Zafra and Alfredo Sanzol: «Recovering enthusiasm (so that it ceases to be the artist's sole livelihood)»

Next Thursday, May 14, the director of the National Dramatic Center, Alfredo Sanzol, will meet the writer and essayist Remedios Zafra, Anagram Essay Prize 2017 for The enthusiasm, an already essential book in which he addressed the problems of precariousness and creative work in the digital age. The colloquium will take place on our channels Youtube and Facebook.

It will be a unique opportunity to address issues such as the coexistence between the virtual and art, the future of theater as a paradigm of the non-digitizable, the stage community versus networked individualism or the future relationship of the cultural worker with the public and with the public . "They are not the creators of the time," writes Remedios Zafra in The enthusiasm– Those who allow themselves to be rocked like puppets for the times they live, but those who are able to face their difficulties and make them thoughtful, even make them shared.

He has obtained, among others, the Anagrama Essay Prize, the El Público Literature Prize, the Málaga Essay Prize, the Carmen de Burgos National Essay Prize and the Meridiana Culture Prize.
