Since the fall of 2018, the Granada City of Literature UNESCO Programme (Arts Departament of Granada City Council) and the Aula de Literatura of the University of Granada have been collaborating on a series of free micro-workshops on writing. Our micro-workshops deal with very diverse aspects of literary creation. They aim to stimulate enthusiasm for literature, to generate new audiences, and to foster a network of complicity between authors-teachers and participants. The workshops have been celebrated on-site at the Madraza palace, but in 2020 they went on-line, due to Covid restrictions. In 2021, however, they are going to be carried out both on-site and on-line, as they will do in 2022.
There are a maximum of 15 places for each workshop, expandable to 20 places if done online, on a first-come, first-served basis. Those interested in applying for participation should write an email to email@example.com.
«Fight or Not Fight: Forms of Conflict in the Current Theater» — Teacher: Gracia Morales — Date: April 22th, 2022, from 6.30 pm to 9 pm — Venue: Sala Mariana de Pineda-Palacio de la Madraza, Centro de Cultura Contemporánea of the University of Granada.
In the micro-workshop Fight or Not Fight: Forms of Conflict in the Current Theatre we will reflect and carry out a writing practice based on one of the basic notions of dramaturgy: the notion of conflict. Since classical theatre, this concept has been in force and has developed sustained on the willpower of the character and his ability to face obstacles, resist, oppose, advance… But how do we approach this more contemporary theater where the characters have been becoming empty, hesitant and indifferent? From this idea of “fight or not fight”, we will play to move among the dramaturgical possibilities that this dichotomy offers us.
