“Citizens without a state” is the common theme of the 20th edition of Tramedautore, which this year focuses on Italy and Italian artists, with a small international section including brand/new short texts by foreign writers.
“Even though this year will be characterised by a more intimate feel - write the organisers - the Festival will still be bringing together writers and artists who have shared this journey for so long, together with the various institutions that have accompanied them, first and foremost the Piccolo Teatro. Twenty years on, we still believe that the theatre can play an important role in metabolising the contemporary, in spreading knowledge and in promoting the growth of a community that we want to see increasingly diverse and inclusive”.
An autobiographical one-woman show that presents an ironic journey among dialects and foreign languages representing the story of Lucia Mallardi as an ex-semi-professional football player and artist, which has led her around the world in both roles, creating a dialogue between two apparently far-removed elements: football as an art and art as discipline, sacrifice and passion, now becoming La CalciAttrice for the theatre.
Lucia Mallardi (1989) began to play football in a women’s team during her University years, to then reach the Serie A. She then moved to Berlin, where she player in a semi-professional team, and began a career as a street artist with her ball and her hat. After 5 years, she returned to Italy, where she took part in a theatrical review at the Teatro Le Sedia, where she won first prize.
