The New Text New Theatre Project’s Scriptwriting Workshop that GalataPerform has been running since 2006 aims to discover new writers and open up a new space for contemporary script writing. In this sense, this workshop is open to anyone who is interested in play writing and who wants to have a basic understanding of playwriting.
Plays selected from the scripts written within the framework of the theme of the year during the workshop, will be staged as play readings at the New Text New Theatre Festival, which has been organised since 2012 and has enabled new writers to meet with audiences.
Participants of the workshop will also have the chance to attend workshops of guest teachers who join us from Turkey and from abroad every year.
Names such as Ozen Yula, Ceren Ercan, Mark Levitas, Okan Urun, Ahmet Sami Ozbudak, Murat Mahmutyazıcıoglu, Onur Karaoglu and international names like Ronan Cheneau, David Bobee, Samuel Gallet, David Leon, Maria Velasco, Asa Lindholm, Peca Stefan, Finn Iunker have given lessons in New Text New Theatre workshops in previous years.
This year, the instructors who will be joining the program from France, Sweden and Spain in addition to the many writers and directors who will be hosted as part of the workshop will be announced in the coming days.
At the end of the workshops, the 9th New Text New Theatre Festival which offers the opportunity participate in various fields, will be held in 2020.
