SEMINAR  Il figliol prodigo (10th-16th August 2020)
The Teatro dei Venti, after the realization of "Moby Dick" (Ubu Award 2019 for stage set-up, Critical Network Award 2019 category planning / organization and show of the year for
Krapp's Last Post Last Seen 2019), intends to undertake a new study for the next production for urban spaces with a seminar aimed at analyzing the first scenic solutions and the completion of the artistic cast.
The first study has as its reference the pictorial work of Giorgio de Chirico and in particular “Il figliol prodigo” ("The prodigal son") and the relationship that arises between fathers and sons, between creators and creatures.
The seminar is open to actors, musicians, singers, dancers, acrobats, waders, even without experience of theater in urban spaces.During the seminar, exercises and theatrical situations related to the themes of the new show and the relationship between theater and urban spaces will be proposed. Following the peculiar poetics of the company, the new production also wants to merge the techniques of street theater with the more classic and introspective ones of the commonly understood theater.
