Tramedautore - Human animal

Included as one of the initiatives for the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the 18th edition of Tramedautore – International Festival of Dramaturgy directed by Michele Panella, focuses on a new generation of artists from Italy, France, Spain and Germany, immersed in a period of great fragility and political, social-cultural and individual paradoxes.
In addition to the plays, the Chiostro Nina Vinchi will play host to discussions, performances and concerts.




Human animal
A neon-lit office, three Inland Revenue clerks and a recent flood; on the other side, a room full of people waiting. Between them, a screen shows the spectators a video-reportage of the working day of those three clerks. Inspired by The pale king, the last, unfinished novel by David Foster Wallace, through a play made up of combinations and unsettling relationships, in a blend of theatre and cinema, fiction and non-fiction, the play examines the ability to retain one’s humanity despite the boredom and bureaucratic complexity of daily life.

La Ballata dei Lenna is a theatrical research collective founded in 2012 at the “Nico Pepe” Civic Academy of Dramatic Arts in Udine, founded by Nicola Di Chio (1985), Paola Di Mitri (1984), and Miriam Fieno (1985). Their plays include: La protesta una fiaba italiana; Cantare all’amore; REALITalY; Il paradiso degli idioti (finalista Premio Scenario 2015); Human Animal (2017)
