Prešeren Theatre Kranj, in cooperation with JSKD Kranj and KUD Krik
The 14th Playwriting Workshop will take place under the mentorship of the contemporary Polish playwright Mateusz Atman. He’s a member of the youngest generation of Polish theatre artists who moves confidently between different creative forms and positions.
Indeed, establishing and changing hierarchies in the creative process is one of the topics of this workshop. A drama text is, in Mateusz Atman’s opinion, a "pre-text", as it is only fully finalised during the creation process in the theatre. Among the concepts of the playwriting workshop is thus testing different hierarchic models of authorship – the position of the writer, director, actor or collective as the author of a performance, the establishing of collective communication as the key
element of the theatre process and encouraging the flexibility of all involved. "When a writer decides to work onstage, the rehearsal process becomes similar to an experiment or a journey – you never know where it’s going to end," believes Mateusz Atman.
