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.
Madre is a face-off with the German playwright and poet Heiner Müller (the show examines two of his works: Mauser and Description of a Picture), a journey that moves between words and movement for an experience of total theatre, a physical study that results in a cinematographic form of dramaturgy. The set, rendered even more sensitive through a system of microphones that amplify every breath, whisper and bump, is inhabited by ten energetic dance/actors who interweave language, consistency and experience to create a form of theatre that continuously weaves between dance and the spoken word, seeking a third way; the vision, an almost synesthetic experience, that blends various languages.
Balletto Civile is a collective of performers that was founded in 2003 by Michela Lucenti. The company is characterised by its study into a totally scenic language, favouring interaction between theatre, dance, original live singing and the profound relationship between the performers. The group won the 2017 Danza&Danza Award for best Italian production, the 2010 and 2012 ANCT Award, and the 2016 Hystrio-Corpo a Corpo Award.
