Pi Theatre, in association with, Tant per Tant Saskatoon, PTC Vancouver and Playwrights' Workshop Montreal present: Catalan Connection.
Exploratory readings of plays by three dynamic new voices from Catalonia, Spain.
The primary purpose of this project is to introduce playwrights and their work to audiences and theatre professionals in the international arena and to create interest in producing their plays. We will co-present three discovery readings of three Catalan plays in Vancouver. The plays will also be read in Saskatoon and Montreal and next year three Canadian plays will be read in three Catalan cities.
Key to the goals of the project is to fly the playwrights from their home country to the discovery readings, both for the experience of seeing the play and to create interest in the individual. Each of the communities will employ a professional cast to rehearse the readings. The directors for the readings in Vancouver will include Pi Theatre Artistic Associate Adam Henderson, PTC Dramaturg & Acting Executive Director Heidi Taylor and Tant per Tant Artistic Director Tom Bentley-Fisher. The scripts were translated into English by Elisabet Ràfols with Tom Bentley-Fisher.
The plays include:
Girls Shouldn't Play Soccer by Marta Buchaca
Buffalos by Pau Miró
Far from Nuuk by Pere Riera
