Manifesto Poetico's OPEN LABORATORIES are dedicated to the research and analysis of the principles that govern the process of artistic creation in a multi-disciplinary context.

In this Open Laboratory we aim to grow the ambition to change ways of seeing, searching for new languages for a theatre of tomorrow.

In this international context, multicultural by nature, we will study Theatrical Space and Time.

 
 

What is Spatial Dramaturgy?

Spatial Dramaturgy is the name Manifesto Poetico has given to the resulting approach of its’ 20 years of research.

Many approaches of theatre focus on bringing together two elements: movement and text, body and mind, inner experience and outer effect. This is a two-dimensional approach to theatre.

In addition to this approach, Manifesto Poetico focuses on a third element that seems often forgotten: The Space.
