Far from wanting to do an institutional exhibition, on this occasion we wanted to create a context where students have their own voice connected with the absolute present of their concerns. For this reason, we organised a contest open to all students of higher schools, the Escola Superior d’Art Dramàtic (ESAD) and the Conservatori Superior de Dansa (CSD).
We only asked for two things: that they formed creation groups that in addition to scenographers included other professional backgrounds from the performing arts, and that they outlined an idea they found interesting to work on in the framework of an international scenography exhibition. An idea that comes from their interests as performing arts students, in relation to how they see or understand the profession or in relation to their creative processes.
