Having investigated in depth themes such as the use of the body, the creation of characters, the poetry of expression, the personal roots of creativity, voice and sound, the historic memory and the mask this year the international workshop of the Teatro delle Radici directed by Cristina Castrillo and Bruna Gusberti, will be focused on the use of the spaces and the way in which they are transformed and/or influence the creative act.



As well as the usual physical preparation and the development of the introspective world, which are at the basis of the creative techniques of the Teatro delle Radici, the attention will be focused on the many resources that a non conventional space of representation could offer to a creative action. Could any place be a performance space? How changes a scene changing what is around? Is there a particular space where a scene could be better represented? This new meeting will try to find the answers to many of these questions.



As always, the 23rd edition of the International Laboratory will be arranged in two parts:

  1. from 11 (arrival) to 26 (departure) August for those persons who have never worked with  the Teatro delle Radici.
  2. these will be joined from 17 August by those persons who have already taken part in session of International Laboratory I the last 5 years.

The pedagogic aspect will be directed by Cristina Castrillo, but the participation of special guests is also foreseen. There will also be some demonstrations of work, as well as conferences and video films.
