dramatist Raquel Diana (1960) has described herself as a ‘teatrista’; trained
as an actor, she came to writing and directing in the late 1990s. Drawing on my
research into her work, this talk will illustrate the dynamic way in which
Uruguayan theatre is evolving today. I will analyse key initiatives intended to
create and promote national theatre in Uruguay, particularly since the return
to democracy in 1985. The talk will explore current opportunities for female dramatists
to share their work, including the significance of certain prizes, institutions
and festivals in raising their profile. In this way, it will examine examples
of how Uruguayan plays cross borders and move beyond their place of origin to
have an impact in Latin America and beyond.
