The FTA Clinics create a special opening in the Festival, a space-time devoted to nurturing the creative spirit, a moment for reflection, encounters and support. Participants exchange inspirations, methods and even secrets, with the Clinics providing assistance and guidance to theatre and dance artists. Six renowned dramaturges will be on hand, offering their attention, listening skills and their presence to participants. An introductory breakfast get-together, private consultations, ample room for experimentation and the discrete, constant presence of these artisans of thought.

Dramaturges’ Breakfast

Sunday, May 26, 11 a.m.
Coming from a wide range of countries, contexts and artistic practices, our guest dramaturges will touch on their current projects, their concerns and artistic desires. Informal discussions and exchanges around the breakfast table.

Wednesday, May 29, 2 p.m.

All the readings, shared materials and questions of the Clinics will allow to draw a constellation of ideas. Welcome to this workshop open to everyone, at the crossroads of research, art and politics. Dramaturgy as a spring fever.
