TRForum wants to promote the exchange and encourage the dialogue between different points of view. The aim is to outline the guidelines of contemporary dramaturgy, discussing its relationship with the performing arts industry and the agendas of future editions of Teatri Riflessi. These spaces are open to everyone: artists, operators, jurors and the public.
The main intention of this new edition of TRForum is to deepen the dialectic between external and internal space. The journey starts with the concept of skin, a filter which allows one to be aware of the surrounding space.
The external space, the social, artistic and cultural landscape are the starting point for a dramaturgy able to reflect contemporaneity.
The second day will be dedicated to the concept of depth.
The aim is to obtain a “stratigraphy” of the soul and life of the dramaturg, to comprehend the importance of the narrative while relating it to personal and social urges.
The third day reaches the external space again: lava and broom become the lively creation that emerges from the depths, a constructive and destructive force.
Lava creates a new space where the broom tree, a symbol of fertility, can grow.
