Workshops

Amaranta has given workshops in Mexico, Spain, Colombia, Denmark, Ecuador and Argentina.

She is currently teaching the Breaking the Silence workshop and an introductory workshop on dramatic writing.

Breaking the Silence, is a practical workshop where writing and acting methodologies are used.

In this writing workshop, we give voice to the silenced. What we could not say or what others silenced. We talk about the big and also the small. Participants are invited to work on their personal stories, but can choose to write about news that affects them. In the workshop there is a bit of movement, a lot of writing and many stories to share.

This workshop has been given in Argentina at the Magdalena Second Generation Festival directed by Ana Woolf (Pinamar and Buenos Aires), Denmark at the Transit festival  directed by Julia Varley (Odin Teatret), together with the Taiwanese artist Ya-Ling Peng and in Ecuador at the Tiempos Festival of Woman directed by Susana Nicolalde (Quito. Catholic University).

The next workshop will be in March 2021 at the University of Bessançon. Organized by Erwan Burel.
