·The charm of the stage and the immediacy of contemporary languages·

Teatri Riflessi

INternational festival of short plays

THE PROJECT

Teatri Riflessi is a project that promotes the performing arts, stimulating the development of a dramaturgy capable of capturing the needs, hopes, and desires of the territory. This ‘dramaturgy of the landscape’ is a narrative centred on the comparison between different territories and identities and perceives culture as the expression and materialisation of diverse processes: historical, cultural, and social.
In this vision, artworks are the tokens of the diverse urges that originate in the landscape.

Teatri Riflessi wants to lift the curtain on the flowering of such artistic urges, promoting the exchange of ideas, practices, and models and offering professional and emerging artists an unusual stage to connect tradition and innovation.

The competition is also open to short plays in foreign languages, encouraging a reflection on interculturalism and the territories. 

TRFest

At its 7th edition, Teatri Riflessi. International Short Play Festival is a competition for professional and emerging artists and companies. Participants are asked to submit a short play, no matter the art language used: drama, poetry, dance. 

Since its first edition in 2009, the festival has been promoting the short play format, encouraging a discussion on dramaturgy and enhancing the immediacy of contemporary art languages.

The project also stimulates a reflection on the landscape, connecting the stage to the representation of the artistic, cultural and social territory in unconventional spaces.

With a combination of culture and entertainment, the festival wants to mesmerise a heterogeneous audience thanks to the immediacy and the strength of the short format.
