Act one

In the Theatre Department, it is our destiny and our vocation to work on a smaller scale, compared to that of the great European cities and festivals, on qualitatively significant objectives, committing ourselves to that spirit of research which alone can lead us to play an important role making clear, and if necessary, courageous choices. We are working with Antonio Latella with a horizon of four years ahead of us, with an established set of guidelines: it is no coincidence that this year’s programme is entitled “Act one”. Having a long-term perspective makes it possible to set new ideas in motion and build on thoughts, on possible answers to questions, on considerations that have arisen from the curator’s previous experiences, so that the programmes can develop organically in their own way. The Biennale College teatro completes this organic perspective, and with its new programme for young directors, acquires increased value and originality.
To all those who are and will be working to make this programme happen, to the structures of La Biennale and our many collaborators, goes our gratitude.
