For some years now, advances in neuroscience have made it possible to study aspects of human thought and creativity that we were unaware of. In this sense, the course Neuroscience and theater it is designed as a space where performing arts professionals can access this new knowledge in an interactive way.

The course will begin by addressing basic topics about how the brain works, such as perception, cognition, emotions or creativity, but also deconstructing some of the most popular myths about the brain, such as how we can separate thinking and emotions.

From here, the course is conceived as an intellectual adventure where the interaction between the students and the teaching staff determines the topics to be explored. The aim is to satisfy the students' curiosity, but at the same time take advantage of it to develop new knowledge and skills.

The theater brings – and brings – space and time. "Real" time and space, and "fictional" time and space. And in a kind of genealogical vocation – or probably necessity – contemporary theater turns towards them to think about itself from its own foundations.
He does this -among other ways- by taking on the challenges provided by the field of duration (through particularly extensive works, or dabbles in the aesthetics that confront the current time of acceleration, for example, wandering in the world of brevity , with dramatic micro-pieces or scenic aphorisms, or - quite broadly - confronting theatrical repetition as the unrepeatability of the performance...); he does so by assuming them as areas of his aesthetic production (through, for example, a landscape theater, or through the multitude of poetics of the visual theater), or ventures into the terrain of his own reception (through the possibilities of immersive theater, or conferring new status on the spectator), or even does so by confronting its own history (revisiting the classics, mainly Shakespeare, although not exclusively, or parts of the heritage of its origins avant-garde).

This course wants to be an approximation around some of these concerns and some of the figures that define contemporary theatre. It is impossible to generate a general landscape, let alone a systematic one, about these new theatrical challenges. Rather, it is conceived as a rhapsodic, pointillist approach, we could say fractal or even pixelated. Completely heterogeneous in its contents, and in the ways of approaching them.

The aim of this course is to make a first approach to stage direction, making known the tasks that belong to the specialization of those who must direct a creative process with a human team.

Emphasizing this teamwork, it looks in particular at the working systems of staging practice, and which can be extrapolated to different artistic styles and disciplines, while also proposing as a central element a technical approach to the direction of actors.

In this course we will focus on key aspects of playwriting such as space, time or action, and we will learn to break down their units and delve into a whole world of possibilities in which to develop our writing. This will lead us to see what are the rules we can follow when facing greater creative freedom; a freedom that, while it will allow us to explore new territories, will also force us to take the reins and take responsibility for the decisions we make, both in terms of form and content.

Throughout the course we will read scenes and fragments of different authors, both classic and contemporary, we will pay attention to their style, we will even try to imitate them and we will see what strategies we can follow when facing different structures and ways of organizing the content.

This subject will be very focused on knowing and mastering formal resources when tackling the writing of a theatrical text. However, we will put a lot of emphasis on the fact that any decision we make as authors when writing must also be linked to the fact of wanting to communicate, of wanting to say something.
The subject will culminate with the writing of a short theatrical piece.
