Season presentation 2016-2017

The speed with which the great debates affecting our society occur is often overwhelming and prevents us from tackling them as we would wish.
Thus, it is sometimes useful to recall that many of the problems posed ‒ on privacy, precariousness, sexism, security, participation, gender, stability, intimacy ‒ are no more than the multiple facets of the same complex concept, identity, and particularly its main derivative, dignity.
This 2017/2018 season we wish to explicitly reflect on the issue of identity from highly diverse perspectives, exploring the resulting conflicts when it clashes with the many dynamics of power.
We are aware that only from the margins can we build solid discourses on the pitfalls that threaten our dignity. For this reason, and because we believe that theatre is one of the best spaces that our society has to celebrate human dignity, we also wish to give a significant role to realities that deserve a more prominent role on the stages of our public life.
