Duration: one hour and 10 minutes
With the new artistic direction of Benedetto Sicca, Tramedautore is presented as the International Festival of Dramaturgies. The plural here is important: playwriting, evermore-so nowadays, has proven to be able to penetrate lands and languages both verbal and non-verbal, capable of elaborating thoughts on contemporaneity. Works will be staged from Belgium, Great Britain, Italy, The Netherlands and Sweden, focusing on the fragility of values in that part of Europe theoretically leading this continent which runs “at two speeds”. There will also be street performances and concerts in the Chiostro following the shows.
Fear and Desire is a theatrical project developed with a group of actors from various countries, each with differing artistic languages and experiences, meeting for the first time to dance together. Exposed to their dance, the actors rediscover an almost-forgotten area of scenic vulnerability. A journey into that world of theatre and dance, uncovered by the experience of Pina Baush’s Tanztheater, of which choreography is a part.
