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.
In Petronia, the stone town that lends its name to the play, nothing ever happens. It is the home of two sisters, Pania and Amita, who spend their empty and unhappy days following an endless TV series. This is the only occupation that is allowed for the women of Petronia. The captivating plot that they watch on the small screen is their only example of a different and adventurous life. It is a link between the desolate reality of their existence and the excess of action from the television show that upsets the balance in the town.
Maniaci d’Amore is a company founded in 2008 by Luciana Maniaci and Francesco d’Amore. Celebrated as one of the most original and interesting new dramaturgy companies on the Italian scene, they have - among others - the Scenari Pagani Award, the I Teatri del Sacro Award and the ANCT 2018 Critics’ Award. They have worked with RadioRai, Festival delle Colline Torinesi, Teatro della Tosse in Genoa and Riccione Teatro. Their first three works have been published by Editoria&Spettacolo. Their latest work is Petronia, co-produced by the Teatro Stabile of Turin.
