H2 What is micro theatre?

Micro theatre is a theatrical format consisting of the representation of stories of short duration (about 15-20 minutes) performed in a small space. This formula encourages the public to be very close to the actors in order to get much more involved in the story. In addition, by limiting personnel and assembly expenses, micro theatre facilitates the introduction of new actors and directors.

The origin of micro theatre. Micro theatre was born in 2009 in Madrid when a group of actors and actresses led by the filmmaker Miguel Alcantud – Diamantes negros (2013), Impulsos (2002) and Anastezsi (2007) took over the building of an old brothel in the capital.

His idea was to occupy each of the 13 rooms of the brothel to offer 13 plays simultaneously. All the pieces were to be of short duration, about 15 minutes, and pose a story around the same theme: “sex for money”.

Playing with that concept, they baptized their initiative with the name “Micro theatre for money” and, at only 3 euros per entry for each of the pieces, soon queues started to form at the entrance.
