Invited as a playwright for a closed-door session with the residents of the “Touched nerves: on feelings in contemporary Catalan culture” residency, he will share insights with the working group on emotions, ideology and ethical drivers in theatrical writing. The focus will be on four works: Archimedes’ Principle, Nerium Park, Wild Time and The Nicest Body Ever Seen Around These Parts. Following this, a public session will be held to discuss the main aspects arising from these conversations, alongside Toni Maestre and Richard Huddleson.
