This permanent creation and research laboratory was designed, first, to compile a wide array of individual ideas about research from reflections on individual praxis, methodologies, instruments and different work habits. It has also organised a series of encounters between creators, giving them the opportunity to share their working processes with each other and the public.

The laboratory is based on the potential offered by this process, as opposed to presenting a final finished event or performance. It follows the principle that the instability and porosity of processes produce an excellent space in which to discuss and reflect on tools, procedures and working methods. Specifically, it intends to take a practical approach to the clearly social dimension of the performing arts, having established that the stage, beyond its fictional nature, always creates a particular situation: that of being together and sharing a space and time.

Throughout the course of the laboratory, different strategies to work with the overriding theme of the relationships between viewers and creators are studied. The laboratory structure includes panel discussions to foster reflection on the processes, tools and results of each of the workshops.

The activities will take place at Matadero Madrid and Museo Reina Sofía.
