Women Pioneers Epicentre

Women Pioneers Epicentre

The shows, events and publications of this season's epicentre seek to recover some fundamental female voices from oblivion to better understand our cultural heritage.

The stories of Catalan theatre before the Civil War do not feature many names of female writers. Many of the brightest playwrights had careers of remarkable brevity, often due to personal reasons that took them away from the stage. In quite a few cases, they also decided to write under male pennames to avoid the moral imperatives of their time. The epicentre of the 2019-2020 season seeks to help recover some of these female voices from a particularly unfair oblivion, fundamental to better understand our dramatic heritage.
