Workshop 1 | International Touring

We will review the development process for a project, from its inception to its pitch and promotion in different networks and markets. Reaching the international performing arts’ market is a challenge that involves many elements from developing a distinctive project that stands out over the many other proposals that programmers receive. We will address how to be innovative and competitive in different global markets and explore how to select the most appropriate markets and/or networks for different projects and their representation.

Workshop 3 | Performing Arts Markets' Local Impact

Performing arts markets have an impact beyond facilitating relations between artists and programmers in all areas –music, theater, dance, circus, multidisciplinary – and venue types –festivals, fairs, theaters, tours and other markets. While performing arts markets leave their mark in many fields, the workshop will delve into the impact of performing arts markets on audiences and parallel activity.

Session 4 | The Diaspora: Inspiring the World

Inspired by life, love, and lack of love, La Marisoul began to write songs incorporating anecdotes with their own experiences, fears, dreams and desires. The songs explore humanity and society, using lyrics that inspire us to spread our wings and find our own destiny. Their songs are serving as inspiration for a whole generation, not only of singers, but of young people who pursue dreams for their realization.
