MAD - Dramaturgy Annual Show
MAD – Dramaturgy Annual Show is a Teatro Art' Imagem initiative, that had its first edition in 2009 integrated in “Fazer a Festa”.
MAD is coordinated by Jorge Louraço Figueira in collaboration with Fernando Moreira and José Leitão and has as main objective to encourage the new Portuguese dramaturgy, allowing it exhibition and scenic experimentation.
It pretends to be a theatrical forum, especially dedicated to spread the new Portuguese dramaturgical texts, answering, on one hand, to the public interest for original works and on other hand, to creators interest to exploit new texts having in mind their eventual staging, promoting the encounter and debate among dramaturges, directors, translators, critics, students, theatrical artists in general and interested public.
The Dramaturgy Annual Show consists mainly on public presentation, under the form of staging readings, of a series of unpublished theatrical pieces, non débuted in Porto.
Teatro Art’Imagem commits to stage annually one of the texts presented in every Show.
