Talk Show

Di cosa parliamo quando parliamo di spettacolo dal vivo?
What do we talk about when we talk about live art?

This format responds to our need to meet other artists – in particular, artists who not only create works but also stop to ask themselves what is the point of doing this job in an era of digital revolution. We will be sitting around a table with some of the most rigorous contemporary theatre playwrights to talk about the world of theatre with a due healthy of self-irony. What’s more, we will do this in a public arena as there is no such thing as ‘live art’ without the People’s Republic of the Audience.

A bit of reasoned talk and a bit of amused show, an hour of a cultural gym on theatre, the fabulous invalid – as Orson Welles puts it – who is always on the verge of dying and never does.

PRESS REVIEW

«With a mic in one hand, artists interview each other, talk about their work, problematize, update. They do so as seductive storytellers – by entertaining and provoking. They mention each other’s masters and plays, their personal memories, their company’s in-jokes , their daily struggle to make ends meet in a profession that is best known not to be highly lucrative. In short, everything you always wanted to know about them, but you never dared to ask – as the title of a Woody Allen film goes. […] No doubt, they draw tremendous inspiration from political life, […] This is associated with an idea of socially engaged theatre that can be a “school of intelligence and citizenship”. […] ‘Talk show’ is conceived as an intrinsically pedagogical and agapic dialogue, in which the irresoluble conflict between person and character – in one word, theatre-making – never truly disappers.»
