The book Quale teatro per il domani? is published
Since 24 February 2020, all performing arts activities in Italy have been suspended in order to contain the spread of Covid-19. A watershed date that has strongly marked the already tormented and precarious Italian theatre system, hitting first of all its most fragile realities. The international conference of POLIS Teatro Festival 2020, Quale teatro per il domani?, of which this volume is a testimony, was born during those complex weeks.
Actors, directors, playwrights, set designers, musicians, university professors, critics, artistic directors, organisers, answered during the lockdown to five questions concerning the space, the words, the visions, the languages and the bodies of tomorrow’s theatre. A total of 57 contributions from 11 different countries, generously given to try to transform a moment of great difficulty into an opportunity to rethink the state of the art of theatre and to offer cues to imagine an afterwards.
