Innovation and theatrical creation
Abstract In this article we will explain what theater is like in southern Spain, and specifically in the city of Almería, today. We will analyze what are its influences, its origins and its creators. We will see how they have gone from literary gatherings to writing theater scripts and their staging. We will also know what the theatrical trajectory of the city has been, the independent theater spaces and the university theater. We will talk with the creators and their difficulties in finding institutional support to stage their creations. We will observe how they adapt to the new times and how they solve difficulties. We will know your proposals and future projects. We will focus on two independent theater companies in Almería, such as Luna Roja Teatro and the company of Fernando Labordeta Blanco. They are artistic references in the city today. Both companies had to risk their proposals to be different and fit into the independent art market.
