The Territory of the Tradition 2017

Imprimir PDF

Contemporary theatre is deeply rooted in the ancient knowledge that is being transformed and used more and more in relation to contemporary themes. Generally speaking, geographical distances have never posed an actual barrier concerning theatre work that always promotes an exchange and the circulation of tides. Nevertheless, the tradition continues to be a pillar of fundamental value for the construction of the new theatrical visions. As part of the Territory of the Tradition program, there will be masters from Asia and Africa, on one side deeply rooted in the ancient knowledge, and on the other highly interested in new horizons and exchange, along with the masters from Europe who have generated a new tradition based on the logic of transverse work, the “theatrical anthropology”, that lead them to new definition of “The secret art of the actor”.


“La nueva commedia dell’Arte” directed by Claudia Contin Arlecchino (Italy).

the main archetypes of the Commedia dell’Arte; actor training in the Commedia dell’Arte; personalization of the relationship between body, face and mask; tips and experiments for grotesque use in contemporary theater.

“Wa-no-Kokoro-dance Kamigata-mai” directed by Keiin Yoshimura (Japan).
