الدراماتورجيا المعاصرة في منظور عربي
Category: Research, Training and Regional Events
Year: 2016
Status: Open

This project centers on theoretical and historical notions of dramaturgy since Gotthold Ephraim Lessing until present times. The book will be an anthology with translations of fundamental writings pertaining to this artistic and theoretical practice and will provide an analysis of contemporary Arab theatrical production within the framework of its relationship to the cultural and informed context. The publication will be preceded by two research workshops, the first will be theoretical and will revolve around notions and examples of dramaturgical practice and the second will concentrate on adaptation in theatre. 



Glass
Category: Performing Arts
Year: 2015
Status: Open

Damascus in the final year, beautiful, fragile and transparent like glass. In a small house inhabited by a family of three, four destinies intertwine: the mother that refuses the present in the name of the past, the daughter refuses it in the name of all things fragile, the son refuses it in the name of contemporary cinema. In order to face this ambiguous present, to escape it, to indulge in it, the family invites a “realistic” young man for dinner.



The Homecoming
Category: Performing Arts
Year: 2012
Status: Open

The outcome of “On the Edge” workshop conducted by the independently-run Damascus Theater Laboratory in February 2012 where a group of 20 young Syrian actors and dramaturges explored and analyzed in depth British Nobel Prize-winner Harold Pinter’s play “The Homecoming.” This play production focuses on the relationships between language, social realities and control strategies. Pinter’s script is compared with the works of playwrights Sarah Kane and Mark Ravenhill in the theatrical creation of a critical contemporary Arabic adaptation.
