FABULAMUNDI. Playwriting europeFrom September 2013 to December 2014
Fabulamundi. Playwriting Europe is a project on contemporary dramaturgy, translators, playwrights and their works. Its aim is to create a common ground for European theatre through a dialogue on national contemporary dramaturgical forms, their similarities and differences. Translating and sharing the plays is the first step towards mutual understanding and knowledge. The playwrights will accompany their works across the borders for a reading by foreign directors and actors, and will meet both artists and audience of the host country. Fabulamundi contributes to the creation of a European theatre, at the same time unifying different countries and highlighting experiences, themes and methods typical of each nation.
The II edition of Fabulamundi. Playwriting Europe involves writers and theaters of five countries – France, Germany, Italy, Romania and Spain – around the theme The dangerous opportunity.
The age we live in has made clearer and stronger the need for cooperation, exchange, mutual knowledge, sharing, responsibility and common purposes: this is the reason why this crisis is for us an opportunity, a dangerous one.
We were inspired from John F. Kennedy’s statement “When written in Chinese, the word crisis is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity”, that meets our idea of the crisis as something that can destroy but also create.
The 2013-14 calendar features a variety of activities: mises en espace, writing and text analysis masterclasses as well as meetings with the authors. The plan also includes the creation of an online archive dedicated to the five countries’ contemporary dramaturgy.
The project Fabulamundi. Playwriting Europe, among the winning projects of the Culture Programme 2007-2013, is promoted by PAV (IT), Off Limits (ES), Teatrul National Targu Mures (RO) and a European network of theatres, festivals in Italy, Spain, Romania, Germany and France, as Festival delle Colline Torinesi, Short Theatre, Teatro i, Centro Parraga, Teatro Pradillo, Festival Grec, Deutsches Theater, Teatrul Odeon, Festival Actoral.
