The actor and director and Mariano Llorente, one of the founders with Laila Ripoll of the company Micomicón, is already in the offices of the Pérez Galdós Theater from the capital of Gran Canaria giving a workshop of acting dramaturgy, which will be complemented next week with the one directed by Laila Ripoll, both for actors.
The two workshops are part of the large scenic experimentation project called Galdós Laboratory, which co-produce the Pérez Galdós and Unahoramenos Theater, with the sponsorship of the Island Council, Canary Government, city hall and the collaboration of the city hall of Agüimes.
The actors who take part in these workshops that will take place until the 15th of this month, were selected last July by Ripoll and Llorente, awarded in 2015 with the National Dramatic Literature Prize and the Max Award for Best Theater Authorship for his work Blue triangle. The chosen people are part of the research process that both playwrights will carry out during twelve work sessions in the course of which they will draw lines that help them outline the final text of the third and final assembly that will be released in 2020, based on the rich and complex Galdosian imaginary and with the help of the interpreters participating in these workshops that take place in morning and afternoon conferences.
As you will remember, this project began in 2018 with the delivery of its first assembly, Ana, we will also be forgotten, which had the drama of the Canarian Irma Correa, who gives continuity to the aforementioned title The crime of Fuencarral street (inspired by a journalistic chronicle written by Benito Pérez Galdós following a shocking murder in 1888 in Madrid), and the work, still without a name, that will be written to the Ripoll and Llorente alimón that will close the triangle in 2020.
Next year the experiment of Galdós Laboratory It will come to an end. The assembly planned for 2020 is in the pre-writing phase. The playwrights who have been asked for the text, Mariano Llorente and Laila Ripoll, propose an immersive theater assembly that will be based on the life of Benito Pérez Galdós, which will exploit half a dozen spaces of the Pérez Galdós theater in which a reduced number of spectators will live the near experience of the theatrical event, and then, in its great stage, contemplate the outcome of what will be the last production of the so-called Galdós Laboratory.
He Galdós Laboratory takes place in the context of the broad program Galdosian Biennium promoted between 2018 and 2020 by the Gran Canaria council, in order to celebrate the dimension of the heritage of the universal Canarian writer on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of his birth (1843–2018) and the 100 years of his death (1920–2020).
