Young Italian Brunch

New Italian theatre creation
11 > 15 October at 1:00 p.m.
Teatro Fondamenta Nuove
11 October 1 p.m., Santasangre - Sei gradi
12 October 1 p.m., Teatropersona - A U R E
13 October 1 p.m., Anagoor - Fortuny
14 October 1 p.m., Muta Imago - Displace #1 La rabbia rossa
15 October 1 p.m., ricci/forte - Grimmless

These are five of the most stimulating, original, and why not, controversial companies on the scene of young Italian theatre and performance: they are the protagonists of Young Italian Brunch, the section that – with the unusual lunch time schedule – will offer the public, professionals and critics a “taste” of what is happening across the theatre galaxy in our country.

Appropriately enough for a brunch, the key words are informality, the simultaneous presentation of a variety of dishes, the desire to subvert the rules of fruition and of course the fluctuating and jagged scene here in Italy, provide the ideal ingredients for this event.

And so, one after another in this ideal “buffet” served at the Teatro Fondamenta Nuove (which has been advancing experimental theatre in Venice for many years, and was actively involved in the programme selection) come the suggestive blend of languages in Sei Gradi by the collective Santosangre, the refined Proustian evocation of A U R E by the Teatropersona company, Anagoor’s new plunge into the mystery of beauty and art with Fortuny, the burning renascence evoked by Muta Imago in Displace #1 La rabbia rossa and the short-circuit activated by the enfants terrible Ricci/Forte in Grimmless, fairy-tale atmospheres and the languages of the present.

Young Italian Brunch was created with the desire to introduce some of the newest and most significant Italian theatre groups to foreign professionals. There’s one for every taste… bon appétit!
