Theater as a synthesis of artistic languages
Luigi Ceccarelli, Teatro come sintesi dei linguaggi artistici (Theater as a synthesis of artistic languages), in “Qualie teatro per il domani?”, curated by Agata Tomšič / ErosAntEros – AA:VV., Editoria & Spettacolo edition, December 2020
From 24 February 2020, all live entertainment activities in Italy have been suspended to contain the spread of Covid-19. A watershed date that strongly marked the already tormented and precarious Italian theatrical system, first of all hitting its most fragile realities. The international conference of POLIS Teatro Festival 2020, Which theater for tomorrow ?, of which this volume is testimony, was born during those complex weeks.
Actors, directors, playwrights, set designers, musicians, university professors, critics, artistic directors, organizers, answered five questions during the lockdown regarding the space, words, visions, languages and bodies of the theater of tomorrow. A total of 57 contributions from 11 different countries, generously donated to try to transform a moment of great difficulty into an opportunity to rethink the state of the art of theater and offer ideas for imagining a future.
