Playwriting workshop with Esteve Soler

During four days the students will learn the different and fascinating method of four playwrights that must be in the category of ‘new classics’. At the same time, we are going to imitate their style in a series of exercises that will be show in front of an audience.

Esteve Soler is a playwright who trained at Barcelona’s Institut del Teatre and at the Sala Beckett, where he gives classes on playwriting. Since 2008, the trilogy formed by his works Against progress, Against love and Against democracy has been translated into nine languages (English, French, German, Rumanian, Spanish, Greek, Italian, Danish and Czech), while nearly 40 directors have offered their own interpretations of the works in countries such as Germany, England, the United States, France, Switzerland, Austria, Greece, Venezuela and Chile. He has formed part of the official sections of the Theatertreffen and Literaturfestival festivals, both held in Berlin, and of the French festival La Mousson d’Été (twice). Some of his other works have premiered at the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya (Jo sóc un altre!) and the Teatre Lliure (Davant de l’home). Against Democracy was awarded the 2012 Serra d'Or prize for best play of the year. 

“We are talking about a playwright poured to export (…) Only regarding this season 2012-2013 fifteen international staging of this author have been performed.”
