Tramedautore 2019 is an examination of Euro-Mediterranean culture, intrinsically plural, creating a festival of performance that examines the rules of cohabitation, helping to reconstruct horizons and overcome solitude. Among the proposals from Italy, a focus on Sicilian drama, while on the international front the festival lends a voice to one of the most interesting artists from Kosovo and a multilingual conference/show.
As well as the shows, the Chiostro will be playing host to a cycle of 10 events, Camp degli Autori. Click here for the complete programme.
Five scenes examine Europe, the fear of diversity, and terrorism as a widespread fear that forces us to see foreigners as the enemy. In Brucia l'Europa Mario Gelardi succeeds in combining the horrifying theme of terrorism with an irony that is both bitter and light. A sort of oxymoron that, divided into scenes that resemble video clips, clearly defines the mental relationship between the West and the constant threat of terrorist attacks. On stage, a group of young and experienced actors from the new Teatro Sanità of Naples.
Mario Gelardi, writer and director, has staged a number of the most successful books by Roberto Saviano. He is currently the artistic director of the new Teatro Sanità of Naples, where he conducts a training programme for playwrights that is accredited by The Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activity.
