CRA’P Laboratories 2021

22-23-24 October

The LAB proposes a framework for reflection and transmission on the creation and the performing event. Based on individual practices and shared proposals, a space will be generated to analyse and research the form, the time and the presence in the language of what we now call performing arts and its models of representation.

What is understood as the present moment and its significance in the action will be addressed – its qualities, density and multiplicity of layers, making it possible for every detail to come to life.

The LAB is based on a principle of reciprocity that draws on the experiences, contributions, capacities and proposals of each participant. Starting from their own concerns, questions or points of view, a dialogue process develops and maps of shared knowledge are built.

Aimed at practitioners of the performing arts, and anyone interested in creation processes.
