“Open Theater”, the project conceived and curated by Elisabetta Pozzi, with Marco Archetti’s artistic advice reaches its sixth edition this year thanks to the growing interest and affection of the public. The primary purpose of the review is to learn and discover contemporary dramaturgy with the audience and present the best unpublished texts by Italian and foreign writers today in the form of a stage reading.
Main characters in the readings – along with Elisabetta Pozzi – big names in Italian theater and young actors among the most interesting on the local and national stage.
As usual, spectators are actually asked to express their assessments, comments and feelings to the texts presented through review cards, in a convincing collective path of dialogue and comparison that will lead to the definition of one or more winning texts.
The reported texts will have the opportunity to be produced in the coming seasons – as was the case for Apologia and Guards at the Taj – or presented in the form of a mise en espace.
Also this year, the Bresciano Theater Center is inaugurating a special proposal for children and families that offers them an experience to discover the social theater of Brescia with the initiative “Il Sociale dei Bambini”.
Designed to bring young generations closer to theatrical art, “Il Sociale dei Bambini” is an interactive and eventful path that takes participants through the halls, changing rooms, the stage and the hidden corners of a historic place in our city’s cultural history.
The show “In Search of the Perfect Adventure. At the court of Prof. Propp “ will make the little spectators live an adventure, a theatrical play, through which they will be guided by a unique guide, Prof. Propp. The famous Russian scholar – who codified the fable mechanism – will explain to them the secrets of the fairy tale, the characters and their functions. It will on stage call the protagonists of the most famous stories of Perrault, Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, who will magically come to life along with new favorites of contemporary fairy tales such as Harry Potter and Willy Wonka. In this fun game, children will be led to identify with the story until they become actors and an integral part of the stage action, thus experiencing the magic of theater and storytelling.
