dramaturgy for children and youth

Dramaturgy for children and youth in our country is in an enormously rich moment. There are many authors, and especially female authors, who have been developing high-quality, risky dramatic literature, with new languages, that speaks to boys and girls, without taboos, about the reality that they share. 

The nature of the audience to which this theater is aimed makes a commitment necessary to put an end to infantilization and didacticism, proposing proposals of artistic quality. Reflecting on how we address children and youth requires an open and shared view. It is an issue that involves playwrights, but also companies, producers, managers, programmers, teachers and researchers. 

For all of the above, we consider it necessary to hold this Dramaturgy Meeting for Children and Youth, which is born from the collaboration between AVEET (Associació Valenciana d'Writers and Theatrical Writers), the Escalante Performing Arts Center and ASSITEJ (Association Internationale du Théâtre pour l'Enfance et la Jeunesse). 

You can now register to participate in all the activities, workshops and discussion tables in which you can share and delve deeper into dramaturgy for children and youth.

From May 15 to 18 The meeting aims to be a space shared with professionals from the sector and other agents in which we can exchange questions and reflect on dramaturgy and how to address children and young people.

We will have two creation workshops, one aimed at professionals and the other at young people by Jokin Oregi and Lucía Miranda. We thus open a great training opportunity with highly prestigious professionals with whom to explore our creative abilities.

Different tables and activities have been scheduled to delve deeper into different aspects related to dramaturgy, its presence in higher schools, its dissemination, etc.

Given the need to continue exploring the path of writing and delve into the aspect of editing and dissemination of literary works, this year we propose a Editorial Meeting with a prominent focus on internationalization. Likewise, debate on dramaturgy in other disciplines such as dance will be encouraged.

The meeting aims to connect and get to know each other, so we will also have space for presentations of projects and texts that seek allies on their path.

You can now register to participate in all the activities, workshops and discussion tables in which you can share and delve deeper into dramaturgy for children and youth.
