Outrapo is the contraction of “ Or to vroir of will tra gicomédie Po tentielle”, by allusion to the Oulipo (Sewing room of Potential Literature) of Raymond Queneau. Founded in London in 1991, it seeks to explore the possibilities passed, present and to come from the scenic art. Outrapo is member of the Or-X-Po.
Outrapo is a workshop of research on the potentialities of the theater. The basic principle is the Contrainte artistic volunteer, the creative restriction, the censure liberator. Starting from an arbitrary formal constraint, which can upset the usual and known forms theatrical work, it is a question of discovering forms neglected up to now or of making them emerge. Outrapo, sometimes printed OuTraPo, treats also possibilities of new forms with the theater or in the dramatic play in the broad sense.
