Staged Readings

IATI Theater gears up for the 19th season of a play development program that has given hundreds of playwrights the foundations to build written vanguardia through developmental workshop-panels and staged readings.

Cimientos spotlights a curation of national and cross-continental contemporary writers.  In June 2019, IATI Theater will present a curation of 10 play readings that fuel the genesis of theater: the playwright. All the more, the texts selected for the program, and ergo presented to the public in rehearsed readings, showcase an eclectic array of dramaturgy that spans several themes and styles, but that all–in elegant and strange forms–bend the rules that orthodox playwriting impose. 

“All plays are not created equal!” …and our avant-garde is a solemn cry into what theater can and should do today.

Play readings will include a talkback with the playwright, director, actors and guests that focuses on audience reaction and constructive feedback–bringing the new works closer to fully realized productions.
