The project

THE COLLECTIVE PLAYS! aims at promoting the creation of plays which are the result of a collaboration of playwrights of different nationalities.

The playwrights meet and cooperate to create a narrative structure which is organic but at the same time incorporates different perspectives, styles, languages and idioms.

In this dimension, the final play’s draft is entrust to one playwright who never tries to homologate the different styles but, on the contrary, tries to highlight their contrasts by creating a collective narrative structure which resembles a cubist painting.
