Programmer Week takes place when the Festival is in full swing. It is a week which brings together dramatic creativity and an influx of industry professionals. We are usually visited by about a hundred professionals from all over the world with a wide range from professional backgrounds (play writers, actors, programmers, directors, producers, translators, set designers…).
This is an excellent demonstration of Temporada Alta’s high level of internationalisation. We encourage the presence of professionals and international stakeholders to publicise the dramatic reality of our hinterland and generate future international collaborations.
During Programmer Week we offer the public and professionals a selection of artists and companies from outside Catalonia, but the majority of the programming is always made up of artists from within the country.
We present a repertoire of productions by Catalan companies to programmers from all over the world to create networks and facilitate their projection and consolidation on the international market. We aim to promote the exchange of projects, the production and circulation of productions, and complicity between institutions, artists and international professionals.
Pyrenart is part of the regional European Union cooperation project Interreg / POCTEFA, an initiative that works to forge alliances and strengthen the economic potential of the performing arts sector on both sides of the Pyrenees.
The project has two basic lines of work: the training of cultural stakeholders, and the generation of structures for the creation, exhibition and dissemination of artistic projects. The main aims are to promote international co-productions, train cultural stakeholders and consolidate a circuit for the dissemination of productions.
Pyrenart encompasses the creation of areas for meetings between programmers and artists, a conjuncture that will certainly make Programmers Week a strategic event within the structure of this new cross-sector project.
With the participation in Pyrenart, we are committed to international co-production, dissemination of productions, creation of employment and professional mobility for performing arts professionals.
Temporada Alta on tour
As a driving force for creativity, every year we are involved in twenty national and international productions and co-productions, and we also support collaborations between national and international artists and companies. As a result of this vocation, we have consolidated ourselves as one of the main centres of support for creativity in the country. On the Temporada Alta website you can follow up on the productions we have produced or co-produced: post-Festival events, performance schedule, additional information…
Quim Masó Prize
The Quim Masó Prize for theatrical production projects was founded in 2006 as an award in memory of the actor, director and theater producer Quim Masó, one of the founders of the company El Talleret de Salt, Grup Proscenium, the bookshop Llibreria 22 and Bitò. Once every year, this prize wants to launch the production and exhibition of theatrical productions written in Catalan that combine professionalism, quality and creativity. The award is organized by Fundació La Ciutat Invisible and the Organizing Committee of the Quim Mazó Prize, and all the rules, deadlines and prizes are available in the following link.
The Temporada Alta press department always looks out for the interests of journalists and quality of information. During the Festival we invite specialist journalists to the Programmer Week and we offer graphic passes through the media. We also have press rooms and areas set up for recording and working in comfort. Apart from that, we offer you a press service with contact persons and a section on the Temporada Alta website for press releases, general articles, graphic material, computer graphics and other information sources.
We reserve an area for those activities related to dramatic texts and their translation: workshops, talks, meetings… We aim to put the world of the performing arts and translation professionals in contact with each other, to play a role in dynamising fruitful relationships between these two sectors.
