74 plays on site and on tour, including 17 productions (9 new executive productions, 5 new co-productions and 3 old productions), 38 guest plays and 19 productions for Torinodanza.
The new season of the Teatro Stabile di Torino proves to be full of proposals aimed at a variety of expressions, but always consistent and interconnected; a diversified programme to satisfy cultural needs, aesthetics and intelligent entertainment, which alongside great masters of the theatre will give young emerging talents the chance to shine.
There are 74 titles scheduled on site and on tour, including 17 productions (9 new executive productions, 5 new co-productions and 3 old productions), 38 guest shows and 19 productions for Torinodanza.
Alongside a repertoire of established directors and performers who attract the largest public participation, training the younger generations with the fundamental texts of Italian and European theatre, the programme devotes ample space to contemporary dramaturgy, proposing a range of heterogeneous authors, from civil and narrative theatre to seeking out novelties, from bourgeois drama to mime and clowning.
Regarding internationalisation, an important role is held by the Torinodanza festival in which Compagnia di San Paolo is the biggest supporter. At the beginning of the season it presents the best choreographers and most successful companies worldwide.
The programme offers the public many chances to think about the social and political challenges that the global world presents on a daily basis: as always, at the centre lies a continuously developing production project that is reflected in these issues and that, through the aesthetic and poetic peculiarities of the directors and actors involved, tries to overcome conventions, constantly seeking bold new expressive styles. The common denominator of many Stabile productions is cultural risk where even reinterpretations of classics follow non-traditional methods and forms.
After dealing with great repertoire such as Molière’s Don Giovanni, Goldoni’s Arlecchino servant of two masters and Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Valerio Binasco, artistic director of the Teatro Stabile opens and closes the new season with two twentieth century classics, Noises off by Michael Frayn and A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller.
The 2019-2020 season was presented on 7th May.
The Secretary General Alberto Anfossi was there on behalf of Compagnia di San Paolo.
