More than 420 authors have submitted their candidacy for the first edition of Dramatic Residence, a call launched on October 15 with the aim of selecting four playwright / as who will collaborate during this season with the #Dramatic. The participation profile was 60% men and 40% women. Regarding origin, applications have been received at the international level – from up to nine different nationalities from Latin America and Europe – and at the national level from the main autonomous communities, such as Andalusia, Aragon, Asturias, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Catalonia, Valencian Community, Extremadura, Galicia, Murcia or the Basque Country. The linguistic multiplicity of the playwrights is noteworthy (with representation from Castilian, Catalan, Basque, Galician or Valencian).
The four selected people will be announced on November 30, and between December and June 2021, the authors in residence will carry out a continuous collaboration with the #Dramático – participating in different activities such as workshops, colloquia or international exchanges – which will culminate in the creation of a new theatrical text.
This dramatic residency program convened by the #Dramatic inaugurates the new proposal of transversal activities with the title 'Dramatic Action'.
