FERMENTA Stage Producers Network

Fermenta is a platform, a container, a network of Chilean performing arts producers. The platform emerges out of the need for exchange, listening and collaboration in our environment, where producers are always underrepresented. As a fundamental link for the development and exhibition of performing arts, we are neither artists nor technicians, we are precisely the bridge that connects these different areas. We producers do not yet have a group, we live very self-absorbed in our world and in our work, we do not have many instances of dialogue and exchange. We need to look at each other, recognize each other in an exercise of tolerance and kindness to build a heterogeneous, collaborative and conscious group.
