about.

El Encuentro is a transnational collective of theatre artists working together to produce exceptional participatory theatre. Through meaningful, long-term engagement, we seek to provoke and inspire communities that sit on the periphery of large cultural centres. We create multilingual performances that ignite conversations, foster connections, and connect local stories to the international stage.

El Encuentro was founded at Directors Lab Mediterranean at Teatre Lliure, Barcelona in 2021. The Lab brings together mid-career directors to imagine the theatre of the future and foster intercultural exchange. Inspired by the encounters at the lab, six directors resolved to create a platform for continued collaboration.
