    Puerto Rico Theater Lab (PRTL), founded by Alexandra Cedeño and Edgardo Soto, joined eight other theatre teams to premiere the collective play, Alex y Emma, for virtual viewing in February 2021.

Virtuality and the digital medium have challenged artists across the globe to redefine theatricality and, by extension, playwriting. New forms of devising art demand new ways of approaching it. In only a year, we have seen theatre adapt and transform to the necessities of its practitioners, resilient to new modalities and technologies. Theatre has always been an ever-changing craft, but more so in the pandemic. In Latin America there is a vast migration from face-to-face theatre to digital and virtual platforms, where out of necessity theatre companies have moved to prerecorded or live presentations.
