Artist Talk and Workshop by Walker Cultural Leader David Psalmon: The Work of French/Mexican Towards a Contemporary Political Theatre

Thursday, January 10, 2019 - 19:00

This exciting week of talks and workshops features director David Psalmon. Based in Mexico City since 2000, he has staged the work of authors such as Bertolt Brecht, Slawomir Mrozek, Vaclav Havel and Bernard Marie Koltes with his Tetro Sin Paredes. Psalmon has also developed an extensive program using the techniques of Augusto Boal’s the theatre of the oppressed, with whom he had the privilege of working in France during the late 1990’s. Since 2013, Teatro Sin Paredes has embarked on a new path by reclaiming the principle of collective creation. All new productions assert the importance of integrating all the elements of theatrical creation (the text, the work of the actor, the space, etc.) into a single dynamic, throughout the creative process.
