A THEATRE THAT IS OUR: WRITING FOR PEOPLE
WITH Tiago Rodrigues (PORTUGAL)
In Latin colaborare means working together (but it can also mean “aching together” or “being tired together”) and has always been an exercise of empathy. Portuguese director Tiago Rodrigues, artist in focus of MITsp 2020, proposes in this workshop an exercise in finding our own voice in theatre through writing for the other. “I never just write,” he says, “I always write for someone. And more than writing for actors, dancers or performers, I try to write for Isabel, Pedro, Sofia, Vitor, Frank, Jolente.” Therefore, it is not a question of adapting to someone else’s aesthetics or politics or of cancelling one’s own voice, but about participating in the world with others, becoming the other while we are still us. It is an invitation to all artists interested in text theatre and collaborative work.
March 13th and 14th, Friday and Saturday, from 10am to 1pm.
