The call for submissions is now open for EURODRAM 2016!
EURODRAM is a theatrical promotion network of works in European, Mediterranean and Central Asian languages. Its main objective is to present works by contemporary playwrights to both theater professionals and the public at large, with a particular focus on linguistic diversity. The network is organized into 30 language-based committees with a total of more than 300 members.
EURODRAM hosts two types of theatrical contests:
– Even years: the selection of plays written in the language of the committee (original plays).
– Odd years: the selection of plays from other languages translated into the language committee (translated plays).
The complete list of EURODRAM winners is published in the press of all member countries, and has a large impact on subsequent theater seasons. The specific award varies depending on the language committees that grant them. For instance, in the case of Hispanic Languages Committee, the winning works have been distributed to a large number of theater professionals inside and outside of Spain, and are presented as part of a reading series in New York City. This event is being organized by AENY – Spanish Artists in New York in collaboration with NITE – New International Theatre Experience.
This year, EURODRAM 2016 will accept plays that were originally written in the languages of the committees.
To participate, send an email with the subject heading “EURODRAM 2016 – Submissions” to the director of the committee of the language in which the play has been originally written. Check the addresses here.
PLEASE NOTICE THAT THE RULES MAY VARY PER COMMITTEE.
