FABULAMUNDI. Playwriting Europe contributes to the creation of a common European theatre, highlighting experiences, themes and methods typical of each nation through a platform of exchange between national dramaturgies and different mise en scène, in order to detect similarities and differences.
For the first edition in 2012 the countries that hosted Italian authors and plays were: Spain, Germany and Romania.
The activities for 2013-2014 will take place in 5 countries – Italy, Spain, Romania, Germany and France, ranging from mise en espace, writing and text analysis masterclasses, to meeting with the authors. The playwrights will accompany their plays abroad to be read and represented on foreign scenes, and will meet artists and audiences of the host country.
Besides, an archive dedicated to the countries’ contemporary dramaturgy has been created for online consultation. Translating and sharing plays is the first step towards mutual knowledge between European partner countries.
