FABULAMUNDI PLAYGROUND – London
Research & Development workshops
June, 21st – 25th / June, 28th – July, 2nd / November, 8th – 12th
online on Zoom
We begin on Monday 21 June until Friday 25 with the first PLAYGROUND on the text The Foreigner’s Smile (working title) by the Italian author of Mauritian origins Nalini Vidoolah Mootoosamy which will be tested by the Italian-Palestinian director Omar Elerian and by a cast of four English performers.
From June 28 to July 2, the director Mingyu Lin and two English actresses will be confronting the text by Magdalena Barile, Gentleman Anne.
To close the cycle of Research & Development workshops, from November 8 to 12, Ellen McDougall and her team from the Gate Theatre will work on the text Carbon by Pier Lorenzo Pisano.
The last day of each of the three sessions will be dedicated to a public opening, inviting directors, artists and professionals to attend the readings of the texts and take part in a session of Q&A shared with all the people involved in the process.
Thanks to its experience proven in almost a decade of activity and with its extensive network of partner theaters, authors and texts of contemporary dramaturgy representing 18 European countries, Fabulamundi Playwriting Europe creates with PLAYGROUND a showcase of languages and diversified formats, once again placing at the centre of its action theatrical writing and the creative process that continually leads it to the stage.
