The 2017/2018 season sees the return of the all-woman show San Vittore Globe Theatre – Atto II Le Tempeste dedicated to Shakespeare and performed by the Centro Europeo Teatro e Carcere, a company which includes inmates, ex-inmates, artists and musicians.
The work presents monologues and dialogues inspired by the Tempest and reworked into “new Tempests”. The production is the result of a workshop of “auto dramaturgy” Dentro/Fuori San Vittore conducted by the director and playwright Donatella Massimilla. Stories, storms and shipwrecks become the mirror for the misdirection of every one of them, and at the same time art, theatre and writing becomes a way to be saved.
A theatre rehearsed in the corridors and courtyards, presented in the Rotonda of the Milanese prison, in prison libraries and in the common areas, which, with the collaboration of the Prison Management and the Law Courts, becomes a means of freedom and a road to salvation. An opportunity to leave the walls of their cells; the tempest becomes a metaphor for the individual existential drifting of the individuals, the shipwreck for which art is an anchor with which to save themselves. This theatrical research accompanies the prospect of re-education and a return to the word of work for the inmates, thanks to the itinerant project “ApeShakespeare To Bee or not To Bee”, the first Ape model car in Italy offering a travelling Street Theatre and Street Food venue.
For over twenty years, the Dentro/Fuoir San Vittore theatrical company has been carrying out a process of artistic, pedagogical and educational research which is inspired by, and which closely examines, situations of hardship, marginalisation and diversity. At the same time, in its guise as a social cooperative, it works for the diffusion of artistic experiences and practices which bring art into social contexts, organising Edge Festivals, meetings and workshops beyond confinement.
