Research, like memory, must be represented.
And representation must grow and develop and be dynamic.
CartasVivas make words on paper stand up and be voice. They do so not only audiovisually.
They also reach the classroom and the stage.
In May 2022 CartasVivas took to the stage. Our first production CartasVivas Carmen Laforet y Elena Fortún premiered in London Cervantes Theatre:
CartasVivas are a tool for Knowledge and debate. Our students at Exeter University learn about Spain’s twentieth century history through female-authored memory literature. The journey from archive to audiovisual cartaviva is a research project that turns future Hispanists into content creators and agents of cultural change. We work with educators and students from universities and secondary schools in Spain, UK and other countries both sides of the Atlantic.
