LECTURE AT THE SALAMANCA UNIVERSITY

On March 28th, I’ll be at the Salamanca University talking about Theatre in the XXI century and Telepresence as a stylistic device in the staging of contemporary theatre.

The lecture will go from the general ideas to the particular practice in ten specific cases.

After the talk, there will be a presentation live of “The Chef”, written and directed by Beatriz Cabur and performed by Héctor Toledo. The Chef is play written with the idea of Telepresence as a core part of its dramaturgical structure. For more information about “The Chef” please click here.

Staged Reading Series

Staged Reading Series

Staged Reading Series

Since 2012, Spanish Artists in New York (AENY), with the support of Spain Culture NY-Consulate General of Spain, have presented a series of staged readings that introduce New York audiences to some of the most prominent contemporary playwrights from Spain.

In 2014, Beatriz Cabur and Doug Howe, partnered with AENY to present the Staged Reading Series. The first three plays were the winners of the 2014 Spanish-language Eurodram Playwriting Award. They are: “The Art of Interviewing” by Juan Mayorga, “Ushuaia” by Alberto Conejero and “Ventaquemada” by Paco Bezerra.

In partnership with the National Theatre (CDN) in Spain, Beatriz, Doug, and AENY also selected “Click Here” by Jose Padilla to be presented in the series. “Click Here” is part of the ‘Written on the Stage’ program developed by the National Theatre (CDN). It premiered at the Princesa Theatre at the Maria Guerrero on December 4th, 2013. The play was directed by Jose Padilla starring Pablo Bejar, Mamen Camacho, Gustavo Galindo, Nerea Moreno and Ana Vayón.

This was an ongoing partnership between AENY, Beatriz and Doug that kept helping promote Spanish Contemporary Playwriting in New York. Every year AENY produces the Staged Readings including the three Spanish Eurodram winners while Beatriz and Doug collaborate producing and promoting the events and playwrights.

The Necessary Impossibility

The Necessary Impossibility

Douglas Howe and Beatriz Cabur, along with the Lark Play Development Center, The Play Company and the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, organised the first North American Fence meeting from January 20-27, 2014 in New York, NY and Waterford, CT. This gathering was intended as a small planning meeting for a much larger convening in January 2015.

The overarching focus of these gatherings is the art of translation. Delving into the nature of translation is one of the on-going goals for The Fence. The noted literary theorist Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak points out, “Translation is a necessary impossibility,” and the group will investigate this paradox by engaging in both in-depth dialogue and hands-on exploration.

Hosted by the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT, the first leg is intended as a retreat, where members can share experiences, explore issues related to theatre translation, and begin the process of developing scripts for translation. The second part of the week will be hosted by the Lark Play Development Center, where we will engage and interact with New York-based colleagues interested in international new work and translation.

Theatre and Democracy

Theatre and Democracy

In Oct/Nov 2013, Beatriz collaborated with TotArt, an independent theatre centre, to help them select and invite theatre artists under 30 to participate in a week’s worth of workshops and shows in Valencia, Spain on the theme: ‘Theatre and Democracy”.

Student artists from Romania, France, Spain and America came together to devise original stage pieces created using a democratic system (as opposed to the more traditional top-down approached from producer/director to actors and technicians).

The Plane

The Plane

I am very proud to present THE PLANE, an innovative theatre show I have written and directed.

THE PLANE is a theatre play specifically written to be performed through telepresence combining six different screens. There are five different teams of Actors and/or Stage Managers located in New York, London, Madrid, Barcelona and Milan from which we will stream both live and recorded video of different scenes of the play but from the audience’s point of view it will look like they are all passengers in the same flight.

Paola Bellomi, from the Università degli Studi di Verona has been investigating and analyzing the project. She will present a paper on it at the “21st Century International Congress Theatre” at the University of Vigo to be held in November 2013.

INTERTEATRO by Beatriz Cabur: A Sure-Bet for the Present.
A Paper by Paola Bellomi.

As stated by its director, “The objective of INTERTEATRO is the promotion of contemporary Spanish playwriting and the promotion of Spanish theatrical culture. […] INTERTEATRO is theatre created through Internet”. From these premises, she will analyze the case of this “work in progress” by Beatriz Cabur, which raises some very timely questions about the meaning of the term “theatre” and on the interaction between technology, digital culture and stage performance.  Through the study of the INTERTEATRO experience at the Cervantes Institute in Milan (21/02-07/03/2013), she’ll try to highlight the achievements and failures of a way of thinking and doing theatre that leaves the real space of the stage to arrive, passing through the liquid wall of the network, to a place that is “other” both geographically and conceptually.
