During the last years, we encountered the need of a precise definition of our theatric style. We don’t want a conceptual definition, nor we need a definition to describe the past: on the contrary, we look for a praxis to characterise in a specific way our working activity in the future.
First, we decided to develop a new “training”, through an activity of synthesis of all sources and experiences which contributed to draw our path until today. A “training” is a set of exercises, games, provocations for the actor to enter a specific working atmosphere to rehearse or to perform.
The target we are following is what we called “neo-dramatic theatre” (another ongoing definition): it concerns the desire to explore the performative branch of acting as well as saving a “dramatic” basis, for whom the “present” act of the performer is not unlinked to an “a-priori” organization of the performance meaning. In other words, if dramatic theatre was a road and performative theatre was water, “neo-dramatic theatre” would be a river.
