THE COLLECTIVE PLAYS! aims to promote the creation of plays that are the result of a collaboration of playwrights of different nationalities. Playwrights meet and cooperate to create a narrative structure which is organic but at the same time incorporates different perspectives, styles, languages and idioms. In each playwrights' collective, the assembling of the final draft of the play is normally entrusted to one playwright who must never try to homologate the different styles but, on the contrary, must try to highlight their contrasts by creating a narrative structure which resembles a cubist painting.
