We strongly believe that artistic research must be courageous, full of risk, independent and free. Always start with a question: what does it mean for me to do theater today? Where to look for meaning? Surrendering to currents, fashions, models or inexhaustibly trying to ask myself why the spectator has to come to the theater? What is my position as a man (as well as an artist) in front of the viewer? Where is the energy and love that drives us to talk with energy and love to other artists and viewers? Marco.
About us. “We found the people of Il Mulino di Amleto, who here – frontally and in an irreverent way – put on a sparkling text by Magdalena Barile,”Senza famiglia/Without family “, destroying one of the most consolidated institutions of our society, very amusing and professionally mature.
