Royal Court Theatre
The Royal Court Theatre International Dramaturgy Program promoted emerging writers and an initiative organised by the Fundación Teatro a Mil with the collaboration of the British Council in Chile and by the association of different theatre entities from Peru, Argentina, and Uruguay.
Between 2011-2013, 12 Chilean authors were chosen to participate in Drama workshops, all with works related to the forty years of the military coup. Five of them presented dramatized versions of their texts on the stages of the Royal Court Theatre.
From 2016 to 2018, three in-person workshops were held with 15 Chilean, Argentine and Uruguayan playwrights, led by Elyse Dodgson, head of the international program at the Royal Court Theatre, and with the participation of playwrights Tanika Gupta and Rory Mullarkey.
In 2020, after a successful call under the umbrella of this program, seven Chilean playwrights and seven Peruvian writers met to participate in the first sessions of the International Dramaturgy Program at the Royal Court Theatre.
