Tramedautore – Madre

Touring production

The opening of the 2019 edition of “Tramedautore” has been entrusted to Madre by the Balletto Civile company, directed by Michela Lucenti, an example of total theatre that shifts continuously between dance and the spoken word.

Piccolo Teatro Studio Melato

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 AutoriClick 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.
