Final del Torneig de Dramatúrgia Valenciana
Teatre Rialto Valencia
A boxing ring where punches are swapped for scenic texts and boxers for actores. 8 playwrights from Alicante, Castellon and Valencia will come face to face wielding their works against each other from May 21st till June 12th.
The process is simple. Each of the eight contestants will measure their skill against another in groups of two. Each one will present their own 40 minute text that will be read by two professional actors/actresses. The audience, through their votes, will have to decide who gets through to the next qualifying round of the contest. In the end, only two contestants will reach the grand final that will take place at Teatro Rialto in Valencia as part of the "Tercera Setmana" Festival.
The contestants will be Josi Alvarado, Pascual Carbonell, Jerónimo Cornelles, Paula Llorens, Adrián Novella, Javier Sahuquillo, Ruth Sancho and Núria Vizcarro. Actor and dramatist Xavo Giménez will take on the role of master of ceremonies.
The Valencian Dramaturgy Tournament is the result of the partnership and support of Institut Valencià de Cultura (Valencian Institute of Culture), SGAE Foundation, Sala OFF and Tercera Setmana Festival.
