c/o private houses

in collaboration with STANZE

A più voci (quaderno proibito) is a project that focuses on the relationship between female writing and creativity with the theme of the home and domestic work.  Tolja Djokovic responds to a request from the Periferico Festival in Modena to initiate a co-creation process starting from a reflection on art and the lives of women today. Three coordinates become the focus of the work: the first concerns research on literary sources: writers who have spoken of their writing as “domestic”, that is, women who have carried out their creative practice by juggling housework, and authors who have focused on the relationship between home and creativity. The second fundamental coordinate is the involvement of communities of non-professional women in theatre, who are eager to participate in a theatrical creation. The third coordinate concerns the performance venues: private houses that become the occasion to generate an encounter between those who live there, those who have written and those who watch.

A multitude of voices takes the form of a mini-series and is structured in five interconnected and self-contained episodes around women’s writing, the theme of home, domestic work and creativity.

After a debut at the Periferico Festival in October, the project arrives in Milan with the involvement of a group of women from the city.

Diana Anselmo e Sara Pranovi (IT)

performance in Italian and LIS | duration 50 min

c/o ZONA K, admission allowed with membership 2024

In collaboration with Danae Festival

Je Vous Aime is a lecture-performance about a short film, so short that it lasts barely a second: it is 1891, four years before the Lumière premiere. Georges Demenÿ invents a device that for the first time manages to project a faint moving image: his own face uttering the words “Je vous aime”. This is technically the first video ever, which will lead to the invention of the cinematograph and eventually cinema itself.

Starting from History, always the result of a meticulous choice between what can be preserved and what cannot, and from the Archive, a device at the service of a certain system of power, the performance highlights the anti-history, or rather “those whom History does not take into account”; thus revealing how that first video was aimed at teaching lip-reading to deaf children – after they were prevented by law from signing. This was the verdict of the Milan Congress, the consequences of which still affect Deaf people today. In Italy, Italian Sign Language (LIS) was only recognised as a true language in May 2021: 141 years later. Je vous Aime is, therefore, a multimedia performative stage action that unfolds between verbal storytelling, slides, video testimonies in Italian Sign Language (LIS), and Visual Sign (a poetic form of sign languages) with the aim of discussing audism, phonocentrism, and linguicism, and rewriting the “literature of the masters”.

Ant Hampton/Time Based Editions (UK/DE)

live collective experience | duration 80 min | in italian

c/o ZONA K, admission allowed after membership 2024
in collaboration with Ateatro

A talk with the author will be held at the end of the performance on Thursday 16 May.

Books and reading have changed and continue to change. The advent of digital, the rediscovery of orality and the audio dimension, and forms of participatory art are multiplying ‘ways of reading’ in new and innovative, yet ancient ways. Hybrid, performative, multimedia, transmedia forms are emerging… These transformations are reflected on the book as a physical object and on libraries as places of encounter and experience.

Starting from the experience of Borderline Visible, the author Ant Hampton and Stefano Parise, Director Area Biblioteche del Comune di Milano, will discuss these themes, moderated by lecturer and theatre and publishing expert Oliviero Ponte di Pino.

“Borderline Visible is probably DocLab’s most poetic work this year, but in all its simplicity it is also the most poignant.”– NRC Handelsblad

“an extremely engaging psychogeographical framework constantly enriched by Hampton’s searching mind and razor-sharp political rage.”– Marijn Lems, Theaterkrant

Winner of the IDFA (International Documentary Festival Amsterdam) 2023 DocLab award for Creative Technologies

Ant Hampton presents the first in a new series of ‘live books’ – Time Based Editions – in which photographs and audio take you on a journey through the pages interweaving history, autobiography, literature and an urgent investigation into the hidden atrocities perpetuated on the margins of Europe.
Borderline Visible begins as a récit de voyage, a journey from Lausanne to Izmir undertaken by two artists and friends. In Greece, health problems force one of them to stop, while the other goes on to Turkey, suddenly remaining alone. The narrative turns into a moving and troubled psycho-geography. Moving from ‘we’ to ‘I’, from present to past, from the personal to the political, Ant Hampton attempts to give value and meaning to the all too human ruins of ambition, history and language. The careful process of recomposition gradually brings to light a complex constellation of Jewish history, the end of the Ottoman Empire and Sephardic diasporas, rumours, earthquakes, tourism and forced migration, mental health and dementia, swallows and TS Eliot’s The Waste Land.

In the collective experience, the spectators are invited to participate in this journey together, flipping back and forth through the pages of the book, comparing images, closing and opening their eyes, drawing lines on the maps with a finger, guided by an audio track that combines narration, music, field recordings and instructions on how to get through the book.

After the two collective appointments, Borderline Visible will be available for individual viewing in Italian, English, French and Dutch from 18 to 26 May (excluding Mondays) at 3.30 p.m. and 5.30 p.m. at Casa degli Artisti Milano. Tickets available soon.

Ant Hampton (1975, DE/UK) is a British-German performance maker and writer. His work since 1999 has often involved guiding people through unrehearsed situations and interactive relations, using automated devices. His three collaborations with Tim Etchells are participative experiences for two at a time, combining audio with different engagements with the page: text and silent reading (The Quiet Volume, 2010); archive photography (Lest We See, 2015); and mark-making/ erasure (Not to Scale, 2020). In more recent years his practice has expanded into a wider investigation of risk-taking and leaps of faith, for example with The Thing – An Automatic Workshop in Everyday Disruption, created with Christophe Meierhans. These and many other of his “Autoteatro” works continue to tour internationally in over 80 language versions, some of them without anyone needing to travel – a paradoxical outcome for an art committed to liveness and presence which in turn informed his 2021 advocacy and research project: – an Atlas. Together with David Bergé, he co-founded Time Based Editions in 2023.

Zoë Demoustier / Ultima Vez (BE)

dance | duration 60 min
in English with Italian subtitles
c/o ZONA K, admission allowed after membership 2024

At the end of the performance on Friday 5 April there will be the meeting “The political gesture of a body-archive“.
The body-archive and gesture as instruments of an investigation into violence, at the centre of Zoë Demoustier’s work, are themes that also belong to other contemporary dance experiences.
One of the most significant is that of Arkadi Zaides and his “Archive”, in which the dancer’s body interprets the proxemics of war, calling into question the gaze of the spectator.
To these intersections is dedicated the meeting with Zoë Demoustier, moderated by Camilla Lietti and Francesca Serrazanetti (Stratagemmi).

In Unfolding an Archive, Zoë Demoustier unfolds an image archive of 20 years of war reporting. The man behind the camera is her father Daniel Demoustier. The search for a relationship to the imagery of world events with which she grew up is like a movement from far and near. In an attempt at a reconstruction, she brings the archive to life. She dismantles the mechanisms hidden behind the archive images. Gradually, a choreography of poses and gestures is created in a broken timeline of physical memories.

« In Unfolding an Archive I investigate what news is, how journalism works, how you use images to place reality in a certain frame. But there is also a second, much more personal track: what has my father’s special job done to me? It took a long time before I dared to put that into the performance. At some point I realized I couldn’t avoid that question. And that those apparently very personal topics – how
our family functioned, the father-daughter relationship, the question of how present a parent should be – are just very universal: everyone has to deal with them. » Zoë Demoustier in HUMO

Zoë Demoustier (1995) is performer and choreographer. The body is always the starting point for her visual representations. From movement she makes links with topical and committed subjects to create documentary choreographic work. Zoë made the performances nesten (fABULEUS/Anna Bentivegna & Ayrton Fraenk), Road to Nowhere (Forsiti’A/Yelena Schmitz), Born to be wild (Thespikon) and worked as a performer and assistant with Kabinet K, Michiel Vandevelde, Alma Söderberg/Manyone, Iris Bouche/Opera Ballet Vlaanderen, David Weber Krebs and Marcelo Evelin. In 2021 she was ambassador of Dance Day in which she created tomorrow’s dance makers in collaboration with De Zendelingen. From 2022 she will start a new collaboration as a choreographer at Ultima Vez. Unfolding an Archive is her first solo performance, for which she has already initiated within the Directing course at the RITCS and Cultural Studies at the KU Leuven. In the performance she uses techniques from the mime corporel tradition that she learned during her studies at the Mime Education in Amsterdam. For Unfolding an Archive she works closely with musician and sound designer Willem Lenaerts.

Eléctrico 28 (ES/AT)

Urban performance with headphones | in English and Italian, duration 45 min

in the Sarpi neighbourhood
The exact location of the performance will be communicated to the public only via mail. 

Inspired by the observation of all that surrounds us which Georges Perec wrote about, with the urban performance [The Frame] the Austrian/Catalan collective Elétrico 28 invites us to accommodate ourselves in a pop up theatre situated in a calm city street to observe life flowing, to think about it, calculate it, determine it and share it. $ characters, trained in the observation and organisation of space, of things and living beings, immerse themselves in the vertigo of the present and translate, with poetic simplicity, what happens through letters, the letters in words and the words in phrases. For a short lapse of time, everything becomes a big theatre play which never ends. A comedy with no plot which stays in equilibrium on the edge of banality of the things which take place through the theatre’s magnifying glass. [The Frame] is an invitation to open eyes and heart to discover the irrelevant, insignificant, the things in life. [The Frame] is a great opportunity to stop and observe. A drastic exercise. A pacific rebellion against dominant thought.

Eléctrico 28 is a collective of austrian and catalan artists that dedicates its work to the public space and its inhabitants. They love the surprises of the streets, the cinematographic images which can be created on this vast stage in continuing evolution and the visual memory which remains when we go. They love exploring the gray areas between reality and fiction, putting in discussion the social and theatrical conventions and rethink the role of the public. Humorism and filanthropy are the principal driving forces of their wor

Through a dialogue which oscillates between the theatre and the document, where live narration founds itself on audiovisual narration, two adolescents confront themselves: Giorgia, an Italian 14 year old girl, speaks of her everyday life as a European which lives in a flourishing time of peace, in which however lies the pain of a family war; Abdo a young Syrian refugee approaches Giorgia to the knowledge of another war: the one made of bombs, missiles and explosions under which from 11 years live thousands of his compatriots in Syria. 

The spectators are invited to delicately enter a private and lacerating world in together with the protagonists who, through electronic devices and personal materials, accept to expose a live elaboration of their biography and the privileged and painful aspects which have marked their stories up to this day. The show goes after the search of a balance between a personal story and a epochal story, in an intensely emotive fresco where technology enlarges like a magnifying glass our present and opens gashes on worlds after all not so far, reveals the faces of war, enters inside homes and shows their fragments, memories and possible futures.

With nostalgia we watch  that little red dot in the night sky and we stupidly dream of restarting, as if problems on earth are resolved more easily at -65º and with the help of high doses of cosmic radiation. Combining live and virtual reality performance, The Last Minutes Before Mars invites us in to enter the world of a group of youngsters to meet their families and friends and spend some time in spaces precious in their lives. This acts as a background to the meetings with the other strangers present in the room, in a collective experience which reflects on the recognition of everyone being part of the same journey, in motion towards the same direction – independent of what happens to us -; now, hundreds of years in the past and beyond, in a future to terrifying and attractive to imagine.

Guided by Darren O’Donnell, Mammalian Diving Reflex is a company founded in Toronto in 1993.

Darren O’Donnell is a novelist, essayist, dramaturge, filmmaker, performance director, artistic director and founder of Mammalian Diving Reflex. His mission is the one to give life to a social tissue which deeply integrates culture and cultural institutions, increasing their capacity for social response. In 2000 he won the Pauline McGibbon Awards for direcion and was nominatod for numerous Dora Awards of Toronto for writing, direction and acting, winning, alongside Naomi Campbell, for the project While Mice. His work with the Mammalian company entered in the top 100 of the Yerba Beuna Culture Centre in 2016. He has been nominated twice for the german BKM Preis Kulturelle Bildung and New York’s Ellen Stewart inagrual prize.

Babilonia teatri (IT)

– Season preview 2023 –

show-concert | duration 75 min

c/o Out Off Theatre, via Mac Mahon 16

On 25 January 2011, the Egyptian revolution began, which within a few days led to the ousting of Mubarak. One of the triggers was the killing of Khalid Said by two policemen, who was guilty of asking the reason for a sudden search of him inside an internet café.  Khalid Said was beaten savagely and then taken to the barracks where he was tortured and killed. His body will be found lifeless in the middle of a street.

On 25 January 2011 in Tahrir Square was Ramy Essam, known in Egypt today as the voice of the revolution. Ramy in the square was singing for Khalid Said, for all the Khalid Saids, who before and after Khalid Said suffered the same fate. Ramy sang to depose Mubarak and, to this day, has never stopped singing against the successive regimes in Egypt.

Since 2014 Ramy has been living in exile, he can no longer set foot in Egypt, an arrest warrant for terrorism hangs over his head. The arrest warrant makes no reference to his art or the content of his songs, but it is clear that the Egyptian regime does not in any way welcome the call for freedom and justice for his people that he sings endlessly, and that the accusation of terrorism is completely unfounded.

Ramy’s songs, in Egypt and beyond, everyone knows them, his videos reach 10 million views, but he, for his people, cannot sing.

Not one note. Not a word. His mouth must remain shut. He can only connect with those who follow him through a screen.
Ramy has opened our eyes. Every day Ramy asks us questions and demands answers.

Questions that alone we did not have the words to formulate, but which today, working on stage side by side with Ramy become deeply concrete, deeply human, deeply political, deeply authentic.

With this performance we want to give voice to these questions.

What does the state mean. What justice means. What power means. What police means. What is process. What legality means. What constitutes incarceration. What means torture. What public opinion means. What journalism and freedom of information means. What responsibility, humanity, strength means.

To tell it, with us, will be the voice of those who, like Ramy, live every day on their skin what dictatorship means. Ramy will sing and shout it with the grace, poetry, anger and nostalgia of those who pay a high price every day, exile, for their choices.

We want to expose the hypocrisy of certain politics. We want to tell how and to what extent the reason of state is ready to trample underfoot the inviolable rights of man, repeatedly enshrined in international conventions that, in practice, remain a dead letter. We want to question ourselves on our weakness. About the weakness of a state that does not know how to give transparent answers. We want to tell how our being free citizens in a free state encounters and clashes with the dynamics of victim and executioner. With dynamics that harm, offend and play with people’s dignity. We believe that this is never acceptable and that it is always worth repeating with strength and determination.

In order not to stop being free citizens in a free state.

Babilonia Teatri is a group that has entered the contemporary theatre scene with a decisive step, distinguishing itself for a language that has been defined as pop, rock, punk. The founders of the group, Enrico Castellani and Valeria Raimondi, compose dramaturgies with a unique pace, a sort of litany carved out of the contradictions of today, brought to the stage with a rebellious attitude. 
They have investigated different angles of provincial life, crystallising it as a microcosm of a universal pain, tackled with desecrating courage. Courage that earned the group the prestigious Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale. Babilonia Teatri is characterised by its irreverent and divergent gaze on today's uncovered nerves. For an unconventional style that understands theatre as a mirror of society and reality. Through the use of new visual and linguistic codes it expresses the need and urgency of questioning, to bring out conflicts and tensions, with irony and cynicism, affection and indignation.

Il Centro di Residenza della Toscana (Armunia, CapoTrave/Kilowatt), in partenariato con l’Associazione Marchigiana Attività Teatrali AMAT, la Cooperativa Anghiari Dance Hub, l’Associazione Teatrale dei Comuni del Lazio ATCL per Spazio Rossellini, il Centro di Residenza Emilia-Romagna (L’Arboreto – Teatro Dimora di Mondaino, La Corte Ospitale di Rubiera), la Fondazione Luzzati Teatro della Tosse di Genova, l’Associazione ZONA K di Milano, lancia il presente bando per la selezione di n° 6 progetti di Residenza Digitale da svilupparsi nel corso dell’anno 2021.

L’intento è quello di stimolare gli artisti delle performing arts all’esplorazione dello spazio digitale, come ulteriore o diversa declinazione della loro ricerca autoriale. Dovrà trattarsi di progettualità artistiche legate ai linguaggi della scena contemporanea e della performance, che nascano direttamente per l’ambiente digitale o che in esso trovino un ambito funzionale ed efficace all’esplicitarsi dell’idea artistica. A titolo di esempio: non si tratta di presentare percorsi di lettura o riprese video di testi o spettacoli esistenti o da farsi, bensì di concepire progetti artistici che abbiano nello spazio web il loro habitat ideale, indicandone anche le modalità di fruizione e interazione da parte dello spettatore, per il quale prevedano un accesso attraverso il pagamento di un biglietto, di modo da valorizzare il lavoro dell’artista, non come una gratuità. Il progetto deve prevedere una restituzione on-line aperta al pubblico, da tenersi nel corso della settimana che va dal 22 al 28 novembre 2021.

Ciascuna delle 6 proposte vincitrici riceverà un contributo di residenza di 3.500 euro + iva, che sarà pagato dietro la presentazione di regolare fattura.

I promotori del presente bando hanno individuato in Laura Gemini, Anna Maria Monteverdi e Federica Patti tre esperte nell’ambito della creazione digitale che saranno le tutor degli artisti durante lo sviluppo dei loro progetti: ciascuna di loro seguirà specificamente 2 dei 6 progetti vincitori.

  7. Favoriamo la conoscenza di altri progetti finalisti segnalati dalla Giuria, auspicando che altri soggetti del sistema delle residenze scelgano di aderire a questa rete, entrando a supportare gli altri progetti segnalati.


Residenze Digitali è un progetto ideato e coordinato dal Centro di Residenza della Toscana (Armunia, CapoTrave/Kilowatt) in collaborazione con AMAT, Anghiari Dance Hub, ATCL per Spazio Rossellini, Centro di Residenza Emilia-Romagna (L’Arboreto – Teatro Dimora di Mondaino, La Corte Ospitale), Teatro della Tosse, ZONA K.


Cinemas, theatres, concert halls: when computers are switched off and live streaming platforms are closed, you are back – with due care – to experience live.

But what does it mean to return to theatre after months of lockdown from a programming point of view? How do you build a season in Covid period?

Once the often very tangled knots of compliance, with the rules, have been untangled, the organizers are faced with the challenge of proposing an offer that, more than ever before this year, has to face the target audience: it is necessary to hypothesize scenarios and diversify the offer. For the audience to return to the theatre and reactivate a virtuous participation mechanism, it is therefore essential to know artistic expectations and needs.

For this reason (as part of the project on the promotion of the audience supported with the Mibact contribution for the three-year period 2018/2020) ZONA K and Stratagemmi have taken charge of directly questioning the audience: with the collaboration of Stefano Laffi (Codici), we have developed a questionnaire to investigate the needs, uncertainties, but also ideas and proposals for the future.

The result was a somewhat unexpected picture – useful to get to know the audience in depth, even beyond the emergency situation – which helped to shape the autumn season of ZONA K, not by chance named with the questioning title “Reality?

The sample who answered the questionnaire was for the most part (8 people out of 10) curious and enthusiastic about trying out alternative forms of entertainment to the traditional ones, based on new languages and a different way of experiencing the space. Interactive devices that can be used remotely, or itinerant walks around the city: the important thing – our spectators told us – is to feel safer. Those who want to return to the theatre, but also those who are still undecided, prefer in the vast majority (87% of cases) outdoor performances. The theatre, suggests the outcome of the questionnaire, can therefore move around, cross places, and the audience is ready to follow it.

This is when the season of ZONA K starts en plein air. The dances are opened by the most famous professionals of urban scenic devices, Rimini Protokoll: they are the curators of FASE NOVE // Assolo Urbano (14 October-14 November), a tour of nine important city places from the artistic point of view. The aim of the walk is to ask ourselves about some unresolved contemporary issues that exploded with great force during the pandemic: why does art exist? And how fundamental is it in our daily lives?

And for those who are not satisfied, a second chance for an itinerant performance is also ready: the Pleiadi collective has prepared R 500 – Safari in the urban labyrinth. #Studio II (23-25 October).

And the virtual? What do spectators think about it?

Saturated with screens and video calls that mark the working days, the respondents answered loud and clear: there is no interest in the telematic vision of a show, neither deferred (an option only for 3 people out of 10) nor live streaming (for 4 out of 10). Theatre, after all, is a relationship. This is well known to the European Lord of participatory theatre, Roger Bernat, who has thought up a new home theatre project in recent months (available between 18-28 November). The ENA device invites the audience to relate, through the use of an app, with an artificial intelligence. The spectators through questions, invitations and indications have the possibility to confront face to face with a “fake” human being in an encounter that is not an end in itself, as often happens when we are dealing with bots born for commercial purposes, but aimed at creating a real dramaturgical text that will take shape from the dialogues between the spectators and ENA.

The interactive multimedia relationship is also at the centre of Play me (Origins project) by Codicefionda and Agrupación Señor Serrano (5-15 November), which can be enjoyed by one viewer at a time. The subject of investigation is the relationship of adolescents and adults with the world of gaming and real identities.

There is, however, still someone who wants to come back and sit in the audience (about 44% of respondents). For them, Agrupación Señor Serrano presents The Mountain (2-3 December) a work that deals with a very hot topic, the relationship between true and false, between news and fake news, between robots and humans, starting from a statistical consideration that involves the public: on average each of us lies three times a day. So does the truth exist? And how can we find it?

Meetings by Sara Chiappori & Renata Viola

The relationship with reality presses the performing arts, interrogates them and inhabits them, both object and habitat of an investigation that mixes grammar and semantics of the languages of the scene, re-discussing the concept of author and interpreter, reformulating the criteria of fruition and appropriation of space, definitively clearing the new technologies, opening explicit connections with sociology, urban planning, statistics, political discourse, economics.

ZONA K has given account of all this in the last few seasons, pointing out the critical points of reflection, ethics before aesthetics, around and within the contemporary. Hence, the need to open a theoretical window to try a further investigation that leaves room for doubts rather than certainties.

Designed for a diverse audience, spectators, operators, university students, curious and restless citizens, REALITY? has the ambition to make the languages of the scene react like in a chemical experiment with the alphabets of other disciplines, comparing artists who have worked with ZONA K and theorists who have deepened the same themes, but from the point of view of their skills.

The meetings will be published simultaneously on   e   di  ZONA K

  • Monday 23 November, 6.00 p.m.
    meeting with JENS HILLJE (artistic co-director and chief dramturg at the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin, Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement Biennale Teatro 2019)


Then, four keywords for four dialogues

  • Tuesday 24th November, 6.00 p.m.
    LANDSCAPE: dialogue between VITTORIO LINGIARDI and DOM- (IT): because it feeds new dramaturgies of the space that cross the places, putting in crisis the very notion of look. Because our relationship with the landscape involves the whole body and is always a question of relationships, with others, with the world, with rules, with time, with borders.


  • Wednesday 25th November, 6.00 p.m.
    CRISIS dialogue between SALVATORE NATOLI and AGRUPACION SEÑOR SERRANO (ES): because “the crisis” in which we live has become a permanent and structural condition. Today, more than ever, we live in a state of emergency that forces us to reformulate new future scenarios. We are called to radically rethink everything we gave for certain and for acquired. Can all this really be considered an opportunity like the media storytelling suggests or are we on the threshold of a sort of “human revolution”?


  • Thursday 26 November, 6.00 p.m.
    POLITICS dialogue between JUSEPPE GENNA and VALTERS SĪLIS (LV): because we have all decreed its death, or at least embarrassment and impoverishment, but we cannot do without it. So let’s go and find it where it manifests itself in its worst forms, the fascist sovereignist populist drifts, the last temptation of a West orphaned of an alternative thought to 20th century ideologies.


  • Friday 27 November, 6.00 p.m.
    because the playful approach can be the key, but also the trap. If contemporary performance has accustomed us to enjoy the theatrical fact as a game, are we willing to give up in terms of attention, concentration, intellectual effort? The game, however, is not only a deresponsible escape, it can also be a very serious business.

Collettivo MMM (IT)

Radio Olimpia, Bomba libera tutt!, a playing field and mobile radio station hosted by a California camper, is coming to Milan.

On the playing field, set up in the new square in Via Toce in the Isola district, a series of competitions will take place in which the public, divided into teams, will challenge each other in an unprecedented form of contemporary performing Olympics.
All the games are inspired by performances by well-known and lesser-known artists.

The disciplines will be introduced live from the playing field, and the competitions will be accompanied and refereed. Each action will be commented on in the radio commentary and winners and losers will be presented.
There will be in-depth content on the performances of the artists mentioned and on the themes referred to in the games: public space, the moment of celebration, the game, non-productive time, in a succession of challenges, interviews with “special guests” and the participants who bring the frequencies in the squares of Radio Olimpia, Bomba Libera tutti, to life!

Winner of Open_Contemporary Urban Creation. Ph. Giulia Lenzi


The MMM Collective (Maria Pecchioli, Martino Ferro and Maria Caterina Frani) has collaborated in the past in the activation of performative-radiophonic formats (Forever, Maria di Sant’Elena, MMFight), has co-directed with the Fosca association the Frau Frisör Fosca space dedicated to languages and artistic contaminations, proposing an interdisciplinary programme aimed at citizens.
The relationship with the context, the ability to involve and promote the individual and the group, the sharing of practices and visions are the basis of the common path. Maria Pecchioli is an artist and producer of cross-media platforms, performer and film maker. Martino Ferro is a writer and screenwriter for film and television. Maria Caterina Frani is an actress, performer, speaker and assistant director.

Audience survey


The Theatre has been one of the main victims of the pandemic. Without belittling the very serious damage suffered by the artistic staff and the entire production chain of the performing arts, there is a positive note that, in the midst of so much discouragement, brings a certain relief: the public has felt the absence of the theatre, and is eager to return to it.

This is one of the data that emerges clearly from the questionnaire designed and disseminated by ZONA K and Stratagemmi, with the support of Codici Ricerche, between May and June 2020: a crucial period, immediately following the lockdown.
The questionnaire aimed to find out what people’s feelings and expectations were about the reopening of the theatres, which had to be imagined in a different way from the pre-Covid period; making a virtue of necessity, the creators of the survey used this opportunity for dialogue with the public to sound out questions that only partly have to do with the emergency situation of the last few months. For example: how much artistic proposals accessible via telematics are actually appreciated; what is the relationship of the public with experimental languages and forms; how much the spatial context in which the performance takes place influences the spectators’ appreciation.

The survey produced valuable and at times unpredictable results: just think of the widespread enthusiasm for open-air performances, which certainly does not find an adequate response in the seasonal programmes of our theatres. Or the evident disaffection towards remote, telematic artistic fruition: an experience that spectators are definitely satiated with.

There is also – and this bodes well – a certain confidence in theatres as regards their compliance with health and hygiene requirements in order to prevent the risk of an epidemic resurgence: the interviewees declare more impatience than fear, suggesting that for them the theatre is not only an essential meeting place, but also a safe, reliable place.

In short: the data that emerge are by no means obvious, and can help us to understand where to start again, and in what directions.

Certainly, as shown by the numerous encouragements that the interviewees attached to the questionnaire, the public is there, and is cheering for the theatre.

OPEN is a project supporting contemporary artistic creation for public space.

Since 2012 OPEN has supported over 40 national and international artists, who have contributed to the rethinking of urban space and the public sphere through artistic projects and interventions. The projects have managed to reinvent/imagine/explore the space, temporarily transforming the places and the relational trajectories that run through it. For OPEN, public space is conceived not only as a place, but as a form of time and research area, as a horizon or landscape where the spectator can reconnect with the urban, historical and relational fabric of the place.

OPEN promotes the networking of skills and economic support to sustain contemporary creation in the field of performing arts, architecture and new technologies for public space.

OPEN is led by Pergine Festival (Trentino) and brings together 5 partners located throughout Italy: Il Giardino delle Esperidi Festival (Lombardia), In\Visible Cities/digital contaminations (Friuli Venezia Giulia), Indisciplinarte (Umbria), Periferico (Emilia Romagna) and Zona K (Lombardia).


Last focus of the season, HUMAN offers performances that address the times of today by placing man and his rights, his strengths, his contradictions and sufferings at the centre. After the short century, which showed the brutality of humanity and also the ability to get involved again, what have we become? Who do we want to be?

Hobsbawn said that the 1900s had ended in a global disorder of an unclear nature and without a clear mechanism to end or control it. Are we facing the new twenties, with the naïve and glitzy consciousness of what is happening around us?

Will the homo sapiens, well defined and described by Harari, be able to make sense of the world he created? And understand global developments and distinguish the mistake from what is correct?

At the end of not only the year but also of the three-year period and of a path that until today has led us to invite the most representative names of that genre defined Theatre of reality, we will dedicate two days to a convention of reflection and comparison on what future prospects they are outlined in the relationship and in the action of the theatre on reality.
An important opportunity to take stock of the current situation in Europe but also to open up new questions and questions. For the occasion, some of the artists hosted over the years and the operators and critics most sensitive to the topic will be invited.

There is a widely diffused image that traces the history of ideas: climbing a mountain, overcoming all difficulties to reach its top and, once there, being able to see the world “as it is”. Reaching the truth and not just shadows and reflections. It is a beautiful image in all respects.

But is it really so? Often looking from above you can see nothing but clouds and fog covering everything or a landscape that changes according to the time of day or the weather. What is the world like then? How is the truth? Is there the truth? Is the truth the top of a mountain to be crowned and that’s all, or rather a cold and inhospitable path that must be continually walked?

In The Mountain, the latest show by the award-winning Catalan company, the first expedition to Everest converges, the outcome of which is still uncertain today, Orson Welles sowing panic with his radio program The War of the Worlds, badminton players who they play baseball, a fake news website, a drone scanning the audience, lots of snow, mobile screens, fragmented images, and Vladimir Putin speaking content with trust and truth.

A white and diaphanous stage. Miniatures to scale on practicables, a radio studio, a reproduction of Everest, portable projection screens and film tripods form a space halfway between a TV set, a museum and a badminton court. A network of ideas, stories, images, actions and concepts is the basis of The Mountain’s dramaturgical framework. With these materials, unfolded in layers that mix, creating unexpected connections, the show presents itself as an unmapped exploration of the myth of truth.

In Edgar Allan Poe’s story The man of the crowd, a chaotic and unpredictable world is described in which fascination and horror coexist. We are all witnesses and actors in a show where roles and origins are mixed in incessant movement. The crowd appears as a mysterious and disturbing entity that overpowers and annihilates the individual. Starting from the ideas of Poe’s story, the show explores the darkness that has characterised these last decades. Unhappiness, insecurity, suffering and uncertainty trigger fear and violence, a regression compared to the level of “civilization”, laboriously conquered and by now considered consolidated in Europe like in the United States, in India like in Australia and elsewhere. We live in a world that is more connected but less integrated. Resentment has become a global epidemic. We are stuck in the belly of a beast. Who is this beast? Are we this beast? Are they? Who are they? Think with your gut, when you have forgotten about your heart.


Conceived, written and performed by Isabelle Kralj, Mark Anderson and Alessandro Renda, the show is a gathering of three different countries, three cultures, different stories and languages, but with the same fears, the same questions, the same desires, the same insecurities. In the Belly of the Beast builds a multi-layered structure of stories, using different stylistic approaches and languages, alternating reality and dream, alienation and solidarity, irony and poetry. Between past and present. On the stage of the Theatre Season 2020 REALITY, a diverse and frantic humanity, figures of today and shadows from the past who present themselves through monologues and dialogues, music, video and movement.

By and with Mark Anderson, Isabelle Kralj, Alessandro Renda, production Theatre Gigante (USA), Teatro delle Albe / Ravenna Teatro (IT)



In 2014, the show of the Teatro delle Albe Noise in the waters (by Marco Martinelli, with Alessandro Renda on stage) was on tour in the United States, guest at the La Mama Theater in New York, then in New Jersey and in Chicago. In Chicago, thanks to the invitation of Thomas Simpson (associate professor at Northwestern University of Chicago and translator in English of many important Italian authors, including Marco Martinelli), Isabelle Kralj and Mark Anderson, co-directors of Gigante Theater, attended the show and decided to host it in their city, Milwaukee (Wisconsin). That is how a fertile collaboration began that brought Alessandro Renda back to the United States the year after. The artistic bond between Isabelle Kralj, Mark Anderson and Alessandro Renda has been renewed in Italy, in Ravenna. The In the Belly of the Beast project is a new collaboration between the two companies in search of harmony, resonances and differences between poetry. It is the first co-production of the Teatro delle Albe with an American company and for the Giant Theatre it is the first co-production with a European company.



For the 2020 Theatre Season REALITY Valeria Raimondi and Enrico Castellani discuss together the Regeni story in the new show Giulio, dedicated to the student tortured and killed in Cairo in February 2016. A resolute investigation on the border between information and propaganda, between power and crime, between reason of state and inviolable rights, which questions the apparatus of the law, violence and the profound meaning of being free citizens in a free state.

Giulio Regeni is not just a news story.

Giulio Regeni makes us asking ourselves what a State means. What does justice mean. What does power mean. What does the police mean? What does trial mean. What does legality mean. What does prison mean. What public opinion means. What journalism and freedom of information mean.

Giulio Regeni makes us asking ourselves the fundamental questions of social and civil life.

He makes us thinking about the concept of responsibility, of humanity, of strength.

The concepts and issues we are dealing with in our lifes, literature and theatre from Greeks to Shakespeare to us. Giulio Regeni is a starting point to reflect on all this.

By Valeria Raimondi and Enrico Castellani, cast to be decided, production: Teatro Metastasio di Prato with Babilonia Teatri


Babilonia Teatri is one of the most innovative companies in the contemporary theatre scene, distinguishing itself for a language by many defined as pop, rock, punk. It has become relevant in the Italian scene for its irreverent and divergent gaze on the world of today. Over the years Babilonia Teatri has won numerous awards. In addition to the main Italian cities, the company’s shows have been hosted numerous times also abroad, from France to Germany, from Austria to Hungary, from Bosnia and Herzegovina to Croatia, from Colombia to Russia. Enrico Castellani and Valeria Raimondi, founders of the company in 2006, are the artistic directors of Babilonia Teatri. Playwrights, authors, directors and actors, Castellani and Raimondi are based in Verona.



In the 2020 Theatre Season REALITY of ZONA K the multi-award winning German collective Rimini Protokoll will bring the truck to Milan that in 2006 was transformed into an audience on wheels capable of transporting 50 spectators through the city: seated on one side, they will look through a large window the urban reality that will become a stage.

During the residency at Casa degli Artisti, which took place between May and September 2019, five selected artists developed a project for the truck around the theme of night work together with Rimini Protokoll.

The truck will transport spectators through the suburbs of the city and will focus the spotlights on what normally moves in the dark and in the invisible. Who works at night? How? Who pays? The submerged economy or the backbone and the backstage of the most brilliant day performances? What places host the jobs that begin when others stop and the jobs that have no beginning or an end?

Helgard HaugStefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel founded the theatre-label Rimini Protokoll in 2000 and have since worked in different constellations under this name. With their work they look for new perspectives on the reality.

Work by work they have expanded the means of the theatre to create a poetic and unique style, that revolutionised contemporary European theatre. Rimini Protokoll often develops their stage-works, scenic interventions, performative installations and audio plays together with experts who have gained their knowledge and skills beyond the theatre. Furthermore, they like to transpose rooms or social structures into theatrical formats. Many of their works feature interactivity and a playful use of technology.
Rimini Protokoll has been awarded with numerous important prizes, such as the Mülheimer Dramatikerpreis for “Karl Marx: Das Kapital, Erster Band”, the German theatre award Faust, the Grand Prix Theatre from the Swiss Federal Office for Culture, the European Theatre Award, the Silver Lion at the Theatre Biennale in Venice, and the German Audio Play Award and the War Blinded Audio Play Prize.

Catalan director Roger Bernat returns to ZONA K for the 2020 REALITY Theatre Season with a show that is about a highly topical theme.

In 2012, some inhabitants of Ceuta left their families to go to Syria. During the weeks that they were in Turkey and Damascus, they called their relatives regularly. The police tapped their phones and all recorded conversations were subsequently included in the dossier of the trial that took place in Madrid. The verdict was the conviction of eleven people for participation in the recruitment network of the Islamic State. It was the first trial in Spain against the collaborators of the Islamic State. The dossier is the heart of this show: an immersion not only in words of the suicide bombers but also of the people close to them, the translators, the police and the judges who followed the interceptions.

Three actresses read or repeat the telephone conversations of Samra, Sanae and Nayua, wives of three jihadists who immolated themselves in Syria during summer 2012. Their conversations are simultaneous. The audience, equipped with a 3-channel wireless headphone, must navigate through words to reconstruct the facts, as did the secret services a few years earlier. At the end of the show, no two spectators will have listened to the same conversation.

Roger Bernat, a Catalan artist and director, after having started his architecture and painting studies, studied dramaturgy and direction at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona where he graduated in 1996, winning the extraordinary recognition. In the early years he worked as a director, playwright and performer with the General Elèctrica company which he directs together with Tomás Aragay. In 2008 he founded Roger Bernat/FFF and begins to create performances in which the audience takes the stage and becomes the protagonist. “Spectators are immersed in a device that invites them to obey or conspire, and in any case to pay with their own bodies and commitment.” The first participatory performance is Domini Públic (2008), followed by Pura Coincidencia (2009), La consagración de la Primavera (2010), Please continue (Hamlet) (2011), Pendiente de voto (2012), RE-presentation: Numax (2013), Desplazamiento del Palacio de la Moneda (2014), Numax-Fagor-plus (2014), We need to talk (2015), No se registran conversaciones de interés (2016-17) and The place of the Thing (2017 ).




Guinea Pigs (IT)

The #nuovipoveri show by the young Milanese company Guinea Pigs is a multi-disciplinary research path that investigates the relation between economy and society, self-perception, representation and self-narration of wealth and poverty. Istat speaks of 5 million poor people out of a population that exceeds 42 million inhabitants: the poor exceed 11% of the total population. There are the absolute poor who cannot face a minimum expenditure necessary to purchase basic necessities and services and the relative poor who live with an average monthly expenditure equal to or less than € 667.05. So Istat says that a poor person is someone who can’t meet the minimum consumption standards, who can’t spend money because he doesn’t have enough.

The Treccani dictionary defines a poor person as “the one who has scarce economic means, who lacks the necessary money and all that money can procure”, etymologically “the one who produces little”. #nuovipoveri is a project about money and its contradictions, about the power it has to change the balance and relationship dynamics, about how days are spent, the happiness of families and the construction of the identity of an entire society. Poverty of means and resources, of relationships, of ideas and knowledge, of concrete possibilities in imagining one’s own present and a possible future. Who are the new poor nowadays? How do they describe themselves? To society? And again how do they describe their society? And how much is true in this self-narration?

What and who is part of the world of a nationalist today? Do the interests of the state or their own interests win? How do you measure friends and who are the patriots?

In the world of a nationalist, the interests of the state are more important than its own. Friends are like-minded people, and they don’t care about small everyday problems or world affairs. The enemies are many, but they are well known. True values ​​are about to rise once again, despite the fact that in today’s materialistic world they have lost their value. But Sīlis tells us that to live in this world full of challenges, one must first wake up in order to change one’s reality.

EVE #1

Sorry, this entry is only available in Italian.


Torna a Danae Filippo Michelangelo Ceredi con la sua seconda creazione.
EVE #1 esplora il nostro rapporto con la memoria degli avvenimenti del nuovo millennio attraverso le immagini. Dal 2001 ad oggi la comunicazione visuale ha assunto un ruolo predominante e la nostra capacità di ricevere le informazioni è stata fortemente modificata. Il ricordo dei fatti di rilevanza globale verte sempre più spesso su immagini di grandi traumi o di disastri, disegnando un panorama tragico del mondo. La sovrabbondanza di stimoli visivi ha mortificato l’immaginazione e ha generato assuefazione all’orrore. EVE #1 è una rievocazione delle immagini che costruiscono l’immaginario contemporaneo e un tentativo di riprendere uno sguardo più lucido sul presente.

Francesco Michele Laterza, regista e performer, ritorna a Danae, dopo aver presentato nel 2017 la performance dissacrante tutta al maschile Acquafuocofuochissimo. Questa volta si cimenta in un duetto insieme alla poliedrica artista Floor Robert, performer, disegnatrice e autrice, premiata nel 2008 con la menzione speciale del Premio HystrioConcerto è un concerto dell’immaginazione. Uno spettacolo teatrale che sogna di essere una performance musicale. Il lavoro muove da una raccolta di sogni trascritti e trasformati in canzoni originali o materiali performativi con l’idea di costruire un coro di forze, voci e immagini al limite del paradosso che dialogano all’ interno di un assurdo concerto in perpetuo mutamento.

Matita è un concerto da guardare, colorare, disegnare. Un ensemble di disegnatori ritmici attorno a un tavolo microfonato, che amplifica il suono di matite, penne, pennarelli. Un pianoforte li accompagna, li guida, li insegue in un dialogo musicale.
L’atto del disegnare si trasforma in un gesto ritmico, visivo e sonoro, che accompagna e dà forma e struttura alla musica. Il concerto è la presentazione ufficiale del nuovo live da palco, si avvale di nuovi visuals curati dal gruppo stesso, con la collaborazione dell’artista visivo Daniele Spanò.

Claudio Tolcachir (AR)

For the first time in Italy, Próximo, the latest creation by Claudio Tolcachir, founder of the Timbre4 Company of Buenos Aires, considered the most interesting director and playwright in contemporary theatre.

Próximo tells the story of a long-distance love affair experienced by two young people who in reality never meet, but only talk to each other and see each other through PCs and smartphones. One is Spanish, from Madrid; the other Argentinean, from Australia. The audience becomes witnesses of the birth and construction of this love, made of words, silences and emotions filtered through a technological device. The show therefore recounts the experience of being far from everything but, at the same time, that of living the most intense emotions of a life without a physical presence, births, deaths, love, sex. And it investigates all the possibilities and limits of a relationship built on skype connection in times of hyper-communication where talking about love seems to be an act of resistance.

On Friday 22nd November, after the performance, Claudio Tolcachir and the company meet the audience in a chat moderated by Sara Chiappori (La Repubblica).

Andy Field (GB)

“One-to-one performance is like knocking on a stranger’s door (…) unsure of what I will find on the other side, what world I will stumble into and what worlds will stumble into me”.

Andy Field’s works are unusually formal and interactive, inviting us to consider our relationships with the spaces we inhabit and the people around us.  Over the years he has created art projects in theatres, galleries, warehouses, multi-storey car parks and city streets.

His interactive performances are designed to involve different audiences: whole families, as in the case of the successful Curious Creatures presented at the Natural History Museum in London, which saw, in 5 days, over 6,000 participants, or involving the individual spectator, as in the case of Lookout, a one-to-one and site-specific performance made in collaboration with a local primary school.

Co-director of the arts organisation Forest Fringe, he is also a guest lecturer at Royal Holloway University and the author of publications for The Guardian, The Stage and Contemporary Theatre Review.

Young and eclectic Andy Field devotes a significant part of his work to the active involvement of young and very young people.


Meeting organised with the support of the British Council.

EUROPA! EUROPA! is the common thread running through the season. We must talk about Europe today. We feel it is more essential than ever to devote an entire year to a theme that affects us all closely and is redefining new political, economic, social and cultural geographies. We, who were born in Europe, who grew up with the idea, with the ideal of Europe, think it is right to talk about it again, and again, despite or precisely because it is at a fragile and complex moment. And we want to talk about that Europe which was born from the war, which grew up with the ideals of democracy, which is immobilized in the face of new scenarios that are difficult to predict, in the language that belongs to us.

We want to follow the flow of celebrations, anniversaries and commemorations – the so-called English re-enactments – that mark our time and our memory, but also imagine and invent possible scenarios. Because from Europe we have internalized the open borders, the cultural routes, the possible networks, and we can no longer do without them.

WAR, DEMOCRACY, URBAN and NOW will be the focuses that will decline our idea of Europe, today that Brexit is a reality, that populism is at the gates and with it thousands of people. The challenge is open, with all the risks that this entails.

With the 2017 edition, ZONA K’s theatre and multidisciplinary season reaches its 5th year of activity. An important anniversary for an activity that has grown fast, so fast that every now and then it overwhelms and surprises even us. An anniversary that we are happy to celebrate also thanks to the Sandra Angelini Prize awarded by Retecritica for the Best Organizational Project 2016.And thanks to the collaborations with old and new friends that this year allow us to realize a truly extraordinary season: C.L.A.P.Spettacolodalvivo, Danae Festival, la Casa della Memoria, Olinda, Stanze and Triennale Teatro dell’Arte.

A partire dall’anno 2018, ZONA K rientra nel nuovo Centro di residenza artistica IntercettAzioni nato in Regione Lombardia a seguito del nuovo bando indetto per il triennio 2018-20, ai sensi dell’art. 43 del D.M. 27 luglio 2017 n. 332.

Regione Lombardia ha selezionato il Circuito CLAPS come Centro di Residenza del nostro territorio, grazie al progetto multidisciplinare “IntercettAzioni”, presentato dall’aggregazione di alcuni enti. Il capofila, Circuito CLAPS, nello sviluppo delle diverse “azioni” è affiancato dalle due Associazioni Culturali milanesi Teatro delle Moire e ZONA K, da Milano Musica – Associazione per la Musica Contemporanea e dalla Cooperativa Sociale Circolo Industria Scenica Onlus di Vimodrone.

L’attività del centro di residenza è realizzata con il contributo di Regione Lombardia, Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali – Direzione Spettacolo dal Vivo e Fondazione Cariplo.

Il Centro di Residenza IntercettAzioni punta la sua attenzione sulle arti che più caratterizzano la natura dei componenti del raggruppamento: la danza, il circo contemporaneo, il teatro fisico e partecipato e la musica.  L’attenzione nei confronti dei giovani artisti in residenza si declina seguendo con cura l’intero percorso residenziale e offrendo costanti occasioni di confronto.

In questo contesto ZONA K si inserisce quale luogo dedicato in particolare a compagnie italiane e internazionali che vogliano sviluppare progetti urbani e partecipati.


Il primo artista ad inaugurare il Centro di Residenza è il giovane Filippo Ceredi che, accanto all’attività di videomaker, sviluppa una formazione da performer seguendo i laboratori del Teatro delle Moire e lavorando come assistente di progetti teatrali (Remote Milano dei Rimini Protokoll, 2014-2015; Sante di scena di Teatro delle Moire e Cinzia Delorenzi, 2015).

Attenzione particolare alla relazione tra corpo e paesaggio è il focus del lavoro di DOM-, un progetto nato nel 2013 dalla collaborazione tra gli artisti Leonardo Delogu, Valerio Sirna ed Hélène Gautier. DOM-  indaga il linguaggio delle performing arts, con eventi performativi, seminari, camminate, scritti, giardini, installazioni, video, reportage fotografici.

Residenze Focus MEDIA
Cosa c’è in gioco quando mettiamo in circolo una nostra immagine? Con cosa è profondamente connesso questo gesto? Circolo Bergman, partendo dalle immagini personali dei suoi performer, si interroga – come il critico d’arte Warburg – sulla presenza degli archetipi nel nostro tempo. Il risultato della residenza, presentato all’interno della stagione, porta il nome di BILDERATLAS.

Chiude il primo anno di residenze il progetto ORIGINS che crea uno scambio artistico e culturale tra un giovane autore, Andrea Ciommiento, e un artista affermato, l’Agrupación Señor Serrano (Leone d’argento alla Biennale di Venezia 2015). L’intento del progetto è portare a confronto le nuove generazioni del passato con quelle del presente, attraverso l’utilizzo di un codice condiviso con un particolare approfondimento sull’uso della multimedialità all’interno dello spettacolo dal vivo.



Christophe Meierhans (Geneva; Brussels) lavora con e attraverso la performance, lo spazio pubblico, l’installazione, il suono, la musica e il video. Il suo lavoro consiste soprattutto nello sviluppare strategie di intervento nella vita quotidiana, attraverso la manipolazione di convenzioni accettate, abitudini sociali o usi semplici. Il suo lavoro solleva questioni sulle norme e le convenzioni, confondendo un contesto casuale con altri diversi, e mettendo a confronto lo spettatore con qualcosa di altro, con la stranezza di essere nel posto “sbagliato”, o la possibilità che il luogo possa diventare qualcosa di diverso.

Residenze Focus ECOLOGY
Due residenze sul tema dell’ecologia e due prime restituzioni del lavoro svolto.
Ti voglio un bene pubblico di Elisabetta Consonni* è la realizzazione di un gioco urbano a partire dalla riflessione sulla funzione sociale di infrastrutture di divisione quali muri, cancelli e recinti; su quanto proteggano ma al contempo limitino l’effettiva publicness di uno spazio pubblico.
R 500 – Safari nel labirinto urbano #studio I. l’Isola che non c’è di Michele Losi e Pleaidi Art Productions è una performance itinerante e partecipativa che conduce il pubblico all’esplorazione della natura, a volte nascosta ai nostri occhi, e della sua complessa relazione con l’architettura urbana e gli abitanti.

*nuova produzione sostenuta dal bando OPEN // CREAZIONE [URBANA] CONTEMPORANEA 2019 – Pergine Festival (Pergine), ZONA K (Milano), In\Visible Cities (Gorizia), Contaminazioni digitali (Cormons), Indisciplinarte/ Ternifestival (Terni).


Residenze Focus TECHNOLOGY
Tre artisti in residenza che si interrogano sull’uso della tecnologia e sull’interazione con l’arte performativa.
Padre d’amore Padre di fango di Cinzia Pietribiasi è una digital performance e un’installazione che racconta la storia di una famiglia per frammenti, vecchie lettere, appunti sparsi, fotografie ingiallite e VHS. Una piccola storia che porta i segni della grande Storia dell’ultimo ventennio del ‘900.
Imaginometric Society – gruppo di studenti diplomati in Scenografia presso l’Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera e in Musica Elettronica presso il Conservatorio di Milano – presenta al pubblico milanese l’evoluzione del lavoro portato alla Quadriennale di Praga e trasformato nel rinnovato The Milan Experiment. È possibile identificare e misurare l’immaginazione dei visitatori? Quali sono gli effetti dell’Imaginometro e su quali principi si basa?
Kokoschka Revival lavora allo sviluppo dell’ultimoprogetto, You Fight!, una produzione multimediale che indaga bizzarre forme di intrattenimento nell’era di internet e del live streaming e le modalità in cui queste tecnologie trasformano le nozioni abituali di presenza e di realtà.

This is the era of the “globalization of the world”, with a single worldwide market. The capitalization success on a global scale affirms that such a big economic revolution never existed.

However this system needs to take in consideration the three problematic phenomena that it may bring: inequity, instability and the environmental cost. These consequently may bring to an ecology crisis, globalization, consumes and social inequality.

According to the capacity or incapacity to get to a solution of the three critical factors, however, it seems incontrovertible that economic growth is a prerequisite to reach a more equal income distribution, given a stability to the system and a full respect for the environment.

“How would you then favor an economic growth that is both durable and sustainable?”

In 2018 the Nobel Prize for the Economy was assigned to Nordhaus and Romer, for their studies that highlight a strong relationship between macroeconomic trends, climate change and new technology. They also bring to the light the contradictions in the capitalism paradigm, underlining the necessity of political decisions in the long hall.

In 2019, with our seasonal theater, we decided to aim our goal into the economic world, to all access and distortion caused by money, to the society influenced by it, to the rebellious and victimized environment, to the technological innovation producing both economic development and social implosions.

ECONOMY is our answer to a complicated science of development models we superficially know and to a present moving so fast we can’t keep up with.

Four focuses, MONEY, SOCIETY, ECOLOGY and TECHNOLOGY. These are four aspects that we retain to be closely related to the interpretation of international artists and Italians that, like us, do not stop questioning the present.

In addition, the year 2019 strengthens the collaborations with numerous urban realities. A further confirmation of the strong necessity for a shared cultural economy. Therefore, the relationships between Teatro delle Moire/Danae Festival, Triennale Teatro dell’Arte, Teatro Franco Parenti, Stanze – esperienze di teatro d’appartamento, Olinda/TeatroLaCucina, Stratagemmi/Prospettive Teatrali, Laboratorio Lapsus, mare culturale urbano e Fattoria Vittadini are confirmed.




Mauro Pescio (IT)

In a focus where the shows tell about financial/mathematical mechanisms, related to money, we thought of a show that touches more the human aspect and tells about lived lives. And it is in this perspective that we host My cousin (Limited edition) by Mauro Pescio who, in his own way, has conducted a sort of sociological survey that tells about our daily lives.

In this show Mauro Pescio will introduce us to real life stories of people he met. He chose narratives that were capable of challenging our expectations of the world. A boy who experienced video poker addiction, a former porn star, a high school girl who survived the 2018 Valentine’s Day massacre on a Florida campus, a son of a policeman killed by the Br, a couple in crisis for futile reasons. In other words, he sought out true stories that seemed fictional.

He put no limits on the topics: the stories can be about big events or small things, tragic or comic situations, in short, any life experience that can give us an original and meaningful point of view of reality. Letting himself be guided by the conviction that the more we try to understand the world, the more elusive and deceptive the world becomes, and that only in the experiences of human beings we can go looking for some kind of answer capable of containing a kernel of truth.



Show  – in Italian

By Mauro Pescio With Mauro Pescio, Giulia Valli and Stefano Malatesta and with the friendly participation of some friends, colleagues and various humanity in the process of definition


Mauro Pescio, radio and theater author, lives in Rome. After graduating from the Civica Scuola di Teatro Paolo Grassi in Milan, he moved to Rome where he founded a theater company with which he worked for ten years. Since 2012 he is the author of “Voi siete qui” for Radio24 and since 2015 of “Pascal” for Radio2. Since 2017 he has been collaborating with Radio3 for the audio-documentary show “Tre soldi”. For Audible he wrote “La piena”, Amazon’s first Italian production of a theatrical podcast.


Qui e Ora (IT)

There are three half-naked bodies exposed on stage on purpose: alive and uncensored body masses, true and far different from those usually exposed. Three women. Not young anymore, not yet old, definitely not perfect. Yet they are beautiful, for they are authentic. In a surreal show, they offer themselves to the public as they are, bodies without home or space, evicted from their own self. Off to follow, devour and multiply their own shadows. An ironic and tragicomic look at femininity.

In My Place, the quest for a movement that emerges from the nonconventional bodies of actresses-authoresses of Qui e Ora and the experimentation of self-produced dramaturgy meet Silvia Gribaudi’s ironic approach to and research on the contemporary.

Qui e Ora Residenza Teatrale was founded in 2007. It is a production company and a theatrical residence, it works on autographed dramaturgies, with a strong attention to the contemporary. It works in close contact with the territory and promotes cultural projects related to theatre in unusual places. For years it has been experimenting with the home through theatrical investigations that have led to encounters with houses and people and through the programming of a theatre review in private homes. Qui e Ora works on the theme of the feminine through workshops, investigations and the production of shows (2012 MADRI concerto di sbagli e di intimità, 2013 A corto di bugie, 2014 Saga Salsa). The meeting of Qui e Ora Residenza Teatrale with the choreographer and performer.
Silvia Gribaudi is based on a common thematic interest and on similar experiences developed in the field of training, around different aspects of the feminine.

Babilonia Teatri (IT)

A point of excellence in the Italian scene of theatrical research, Babilonia Teatri arrive in Milan with a new creation, a sort of concert through which they manage to pass dense content and full of rebellion. The repeated word that tells the disenchantment for an (im)perfect world, unmistakable feature of the company, is shaped mainly in songs, specially written on the notes of Lorenzo Scuda (Oblivion), building a show where music and theater contaminate and dialogue in an uninterrupted and whirling.

Calcinculo is a show where words take the shape of music. Where music takes the shape of words. We live in an obsessive time that words and images are no longer able to tell by themselves, music comes to the rescue like a medicine or an explosive fuse.

Calcinculo is a show that wants to photograph our today. His perversions and his escapes from himself. His inability to imagine a future, to dream it, to strive towards an ideal, to believe. With this show the Babilonia tell the world around us with their sharp, painful and ironic look.

When journalist and writer Cathy Blisson met them in 2009, Pétro and Nadia (both in their eighties) were the only two inhabitants of a ghost village just 4km long. Following the nuclear disaster that exploded on the night of 26-27 April 1986, Zvizdal was declared unfit for human habitation. A dramatic event that affected the lives of hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians, Russians and Belarusians. Status: officially designated for evacuation.

25 years after ‘Chernobyl’, Pétro and Nadia still live there, alone, surrounded by a forest that is slowly growing old with them. In the company of a guard dog, a skinny cow, a llama and a few chickens, they spend their days invoking Stalin and all the saints, waiting for the village to repopulate sooner or later.

A long-term project (from 2011 to 2015), Zvizdal unfolds through the passing of the seasons in a world where danger, invisible, is everywhere. A reflection on isolation, the question of survival, solitude and waiting for death.

Founders of BERLIN in 2003, directors Bart Baele and Yves Degryse decided not to choose a particular genre, but to venture into the realm of documentary and let the places of their forays guide their inspiration. This philosophy gave rise to two project cycles: Holocene (the current geological era) where the starting point is always a city or other place on the planet, and Horror Vacui (fear of the void) in which true and touching stories are delicately unravelled around a table. The Holocene cycle includes Jerusalem, Iqaluit, Bonanza, Moscow and Zvizdal. The first three episodes of Horror Vacui are Tagfish, Land’s end and Perhaps all the dragons. BERLIN are still working on both cycles. Holocene will end in the city of Berlin (hence the group’s name) with the creation of a docu-fiction project involving the inhabitants of the cities featured in the previous episodes. The company has worked in 27 different countries in recent years, within various circuits: from theatres to exhibition spaces, from festivals to special locations.

Tapping Sheeps (State 3)

Sorry, this entry is only available in Italian.


Con la serie Stato 1-4 (di cui questo è il terzo episodio), Rimini Protokoll indaga ciò che oggi sfugge all’organizzazione e al controllo dello stato-nazione contemporaneo. Guarda all’essenza di quei poteri la cui separazione era intesa come principale meccanismo di controllo e monitoraggio delle strutture statali. Quanto questi poteri sono ancor in grado di regolare gli impeti decisivi per il cambiamento sociale odierno?

Benvenuti nell’anno 2048. L’organizzazione dell’umanità è finalmente del tutto digitalizzata. Non c’è più violenza. IRIS controlla le nostre armi. Non ci sono più incidenti stradali, perché IRIS controlla il traffico. La partecipazione democratica avviene tramite interazioni digitali. Ciò che clicchi è ciò che voti. IRIS ne misura i risultati. La democrazia è diventata liquida ed è rimasta teatro – ogni spettacolo è una sessione laboratoriale per 120 spettatori nella nuvola. Equipaggiati di tablet programmati ad hoc, i partecipanti entrano in un processo di voto permanete, tutti connessi alla nuvola attraverso i loro dispositivi digitali. Il pubblico diventa il corpo risonante che proietta le dinamiche dello sciame tipiche della rete nello spazio teatrale. Le loro decisioni si trasformano in suono. I loro dati diventano nuvole digitali. Partendo da Atene, luogo in cui la democrazia è nata e sembra oggi aver fallito, Daniel Wetzel e Ioanna Valsamidou indagano potenzialità e pericoli della digitalizzazione per il processo democratico.

RIMINI PROTOKOLL è l’etichetta per i lavori di Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi e Daniel Wetzel, che dal 2000 costituiscono un collettivo di registi/autori e firmano le loro opere singolarmente, a due o a tre. Il loro lavoro indaga sistematicamente la realtà attraverso il teatro, utilizzando linguaggi innovativi che hanno di fatto rivoluzionato la scena Europea. Hanno portato in scena impresari di pompe funebri, uomini d’affari africani, programmatori specializzati e grandi investitori, politici ed economisti – i cosiddetti “esperti della realtà” – a volte anche tutti insieme. Ha organizzato passeggiate urbane guidate da un navigatore elettronico, visite a domicilio nelle case, rappresentazioni statistiche in scena delle maggior città del mondo, umanoidi meccanici protagonisti del palco. Sono stati invitati innumerevoli volte al Berliner Theatertreffen e hanno vinto innumerevoli premi (il Leone d’Argento alla Biennale di Venezia, il premio tedesco Der Faust, il riconoscimento come miglior Radiodramma dell’Associazione Ciechi di Guerra tedeschi – il premio per radiodramma più importante in Germania, il Premio Teatrale Europeo, solo per citarne alcuni). Si può ben dire che da metà degli anni 2000 in poi si deve parlare del teatro d’avanguardia prima e dopo i Rimini Protokoll.

Kokoschka Revival (IT)

In Italian language there are the three S’s that many fight for: Soldi (Money), Sesso (Sex), Successo (Success). Online entertainment workers are a growing phenomenon.

Kokoschka Revival is working on the development of its latest production, a multimedia show that investigates the bizarre forms of live streaming entertainment and the phenomenon of monetising one’s image on online platforms.

It is a work that tells the story of two girls who work and live their daily lives in virtual space: two fighters who never look each other in the eye, even though they absurdly share the same space in the real world. In the era of branding the self, of dominant individualism, of the intimate and inseparable smartphone… YouFight! What are you fighting for?

YouFight! is a platform, where each user fights for a living and earns money, which he receives in the form of credit/Like from his audience (we call this currency Energy Coin). Everyone can propose the fighting game they want, and our two protagonists compete in Chess Boxing: a sport in which a round of Boxing and a round of Chess alternate. On the same platform as YouFight! you can spend your free time on other immersive entertainment services, to be enjoyed in solitude but always under the eyes of an audience.

Kokoschka Revival is an interdisciplinary artistic collective founded in Milan in 2013, whose research moves transversally in a dialogue between theatre, cinema and experimental music. To date, the productions consist of theatre shows, performances, experimental films and parties/happenings. The collective’s shows have been produced in national and international residencies, mainly in France and Denmark. From 2015 to 2017, the collective organized numerous parties and performance events in Macao (Milan), proposing its own idea of artistic programming.




Imaginometric Society &
Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (IT)

The Imaginometric Society, founded by a group of students from the Brera Academy and the Milan Conservatory of Music, created the project that represented Italy at the Quadrennial Stage Design Exhibition in Prague (June 2019), which was awarded the Award for Imagination.

The Milan Experiment develops the research on human imagination begun in Prague, adding new possibilities to the Imaginometer, the instrument designed to demonstrate the first imaginometric principle: imagination is what makes us human. Admitted one by one into the heart of the Imaginometer, the Performative Machine, visitors will live an immersive, personalized and unrepeatable experience, relentlessly realising the second imaginometric principle: imagination increases by reflecting itself. The collective imagination of the Milan Experiment will draw the face of the next research, linked to the third imaginometric principle: imagination cannot be reproduced, but only recreated each time.

A button. One player. One screen.

Here are the new barbarians. Incomprehensible to the eyes of the adult world. Teenagers, hyper-connected and fragile, terrified and attracted by the image of themselves on social media, experts in sexting, video-gaming and binge drinking, owners of SmartPhones as an extension of their bodies. But what do we know about today’s teenagers?

A narrative short circuit from the origins of the video game to the origins of the iGeneration.
An immersive experience in which we meet today’s teenagers through the use of new technologies. A path of creation that narrates our identities – real and virtual – thanks to the comparison between generations.

In this performance the spectator will find himself in relation to them. He will be able to choose whether to confirm or question his own expectations, fears and prejudices. The ultimate goal will be a “performative game” to generate an unprecedented and intimate encounter.

PLAY ME (ORIGINS PROJECT) is the result of a work on the biographies of young people met during the research and dramaturgical development phase between Turin and Milan. What the sociologist Morin calls “cinema of total authenticity”.

After Generazione gLocale and thanks to the ORA! call for proposals from Compagnia San Paolo, ZONA K is once again confronted with a new production, rethinking the artistic and cultural exchange between a young author and an established artist. The collaboration with Andrea Ciommiento is confirmed, this time flanked by the Agrupación Señor Serrano – Silver Lion at the 2015 Venice Biennial and already guests of ZONA K – with the most innovative aspects of his poetics that will guide the entire production, as well as activating a debate on new participatory methods.

Mai prima d’ora ho sentito la storia arrivare così vicino … Se hai mai avuto la possibilità di partecipare a uno degli spettacoli di Milo Rau, ti consiglio caldamente di farlo.” [De Correspondent]

Nel 2006 Milo Rau iniziò a occuparsi di quanto accaduto in Rwanda, per sei mesi fece ricerche approfondite e scrisse dozzine di inizi, ma alla fine si arrese nell’incapacità di tradurre in performance un avvenimento così violento e incomprensibile. Solo nel 2010 – mentre stava terminando il film The Last Days of the Ceausescous – individuò nello studio della Radio-Télévision Libre des Mille Collines (RTML) il luogo dal quale raccontare la verità sul genocidio. Basato su trasmissioni in tempo reale e su racconti autentici, Milo Rau porta la storia molto vicino a noi.

Se ne discute con Milena Kipfmüller e Diogène Ntarindwa, drammaturga e attore di Hate Radio, Roberta Carpani, docente di Storia del Teatro Università Cattolica di Milano, Danilo De Biasio, giornalista e direttore Festival dei Diritti Umani, Lapsus, laboratorio di analisi storica del mondo contemporaneo.

GOETHE INSTITUT MAILAND in collaborazione con ZONA K


Tandem Oslo-Milano

Lo spettacolo di improvvisazione teatrale „Allied Aliens“ di Jan Bosse svoltosi a Olso nel maggio scorso al teatro Den mangfaldige scenen, vede la sua continuazione naturale a Milano.
Con il patrocinio del Comune di Milano nell’ambito del 60esimo giubileo del Goethe-Institut Mailand.

Le due cittá formano infatti uno dei 19 tandem di „Freiraum“, il progetto del Goethe-Institut che analizza il concetto di libertà e le sue molteplici implicazioni, non ultime la marginalità e l‘inclusione nelle città europee.
Lo spettacolo sarà di nuovo curato dal regista tedesco d’avanguardia Jan Bosse e ai due attori già protagonisti a Oslo, Camara Joof, di genitori gambiani e norvegesi, e Modou Gueye, senegalese di casa a Milano da 30 anni, si aggiungerà anche l‘attrice Gama Kipulu, italiana di origine congolese. Insieme sul palco affronteranno in forma artistica domande quali: cosa significa essere estranei o invece di casa, giocano con le loro identità e riprendono le tematiche scelte da Olso e Milano per il progetto „Freiraum“.
Subito dopo lo spettacolo regista, attrici e attore dialogheranno con il pubblico.

Jan Bosse: „spazi liberi sono spazi intermedi – spesso dapprima piccole nicchie che diventano sempre più grandi e si sviluppano poi in autentici spazi liberi. Anche nel mio campo professionale, il teatro, in ogni singolo lavoro lo spazio comune, libero, creativo dell’elaborazione di un pezzo o di un progetto deve venire riscoperto ogni volta di nuovo, sviluppato, combattuto.“

„Allied Aliens“ muove dalle riflessioni che hanno portato le due città alla formulazione di tematiche molto simili intorno all’essere e al sentirsi stranieri e che sono le tematiche con le quali il Goethe-Institut Mailand e il Goethe-Institut Oslo con i loro partner locali – rispettivamente Sunugal e Hedda Foundation – hanno partecipato al progetto “Freiraum”:

TAUTÓTĒS – Identità, incontro o scontro? Per riconoscere e vivere realmente la pluralità e la diversità come un valore aggiunto della nostra società e della nostra città, quali possono essere le nuove espressioni artistiche ed educative, sociali, politiche e di sviluppo urbano che attraverso un confronto serrato e magari provocatorio aprano a una nuova riflessione che indaghi le dinamiche identitarie e tenga conto della loro complessità e conseguenze?
Video Freiraum Milano

Gli immigrati che arrivano in Norvegia considerano la libertà come il più alto valore norvegese. Nel contempo però parti della popolazione temono per la loro libertà proprio a causa dell’immigrazione da altre culture e religioni. Come creare una piattaforma di scambio in cui entrambe le parti si sentono ascoltate, costruiscono e condividono valori, sicurezza e senso di appartenenza? Si tratta dello stare insieme: Chi sei tu e come possiamo costruire un presente comune?
Video Freiraum Oslo

“Freiraum” è un termine che in tedesco indica il libero spazio, in senso letterale e traslato, e rappresenta fortemente il concetto di libertà, con le sue ambivalenze e contraddizioni in una contemporaneità sociale ed economica, nonchè politico-culturale, inquieta e allarmata.
Il Goethe-Institut, si intende come istituzione con una missione europea e con il progetto Freiraum vuole accentuare il proprio impegno europolitico, mettendosi a disposizione per instaurare un dialogo produttivo che veda come interlocutori nuovi partner e nuove utenze. Una rete internazionale inclusiva, che possa contribuire a mettere in rilievo le problematiche, a tracciare possibili percorsi e soluzioni, a gettare uno sguardo nuovo.

Jan Bosse
, nato a Stocarda nel 1969, ha iniziato la sua carriera di teatro al Münchner Kammerspiele e al Deutschen Schauspielhaus di Amburgo. Negli ultimi anni ha messo in scena spettacoli al Burgtheater di Vienna, al teatro Thalia di Amburgo e al Deutsches Theater di Berlino.

My Documents ha un formato essenziale: l’artista è sul palco con i suoi documenti.

Il workshop è rivolto a quegli artisti interessati a sviluppare una Lettura-Performance che parte da un archivio personale, da un’esperienza radicale, da una storia che li ossessiona segretamente per dare vita a ricerche che altrimenti resterebbero perse in una cartella senza nome sul computer.

Il workshop esplora, seguendo il genere della Lettura-Performance, il contagio tra arte concettuale, ricerca, teatro e propone uno spazio dove possono coesistere espressioni artistiche nate dalle diverse discipline.


Il laboratorio è rivolto ad artisti di tutte le discipline (teatro, musica, arti visive, film, letteratura) che vogliono lavorare alla creazione di una Lettura-Performance.

Saranno selezionati 12 artisti che presenteranno un progetto basato su un’indagine personale, il diario di un’esperienza, una storia vera, propria o di qualcun altro, un’idea non realizzata, ecc.


Per partecipare, spedisci entro e non oltre il 4 novembre 2018 a una biografia di 200 parole e un testo di massimo 250 parole per descrivere il progetto che vuoi realizzare e allega vari materiali (foto, video, testi).

Biografia e testo devono essere inviati in lingua inglese.

La selezione sarà annunciata via e-mail e sul sito web di ZONA K dal 9 novembre 2018.


Da martedì 20 a sabato 24 novembre, tutti i giorni dalle 10:00 alle 14:00


Sabato 24 novembre 2018, dalle 20.00 alle 22.00 a ZONA K


Importante: il workshop sarà tenuto in inglese.

E’ gradita la conoscenza della lingua; è comunque prevista la traduzione a braccio.

Long-lasting landscapes” è un appuntamento della ricerca performativa itinerari coreografici urbani di DANCE MAKERS. La tappa di Milano è realizzata per e con le stagioni teatrali di ZONA K e Stanze, con la collaborazione della Scuola di Scenografia di Brera e L’Arcobalenodanza. La sua creazione vede la partecipazione attiva di un gruppo di studenti di scenografia e di un gruppo di giovani danzatori non professionisti.


Ai partecipanti si propone di percorrere e riscoprire gli spazi dell’Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, alla ricerca del proprio posizionamento personale rispetto ad un luogo così simbolico e importante.

Dalle architetture, dai personaggi, da quadri e sculture raccoglieremo gli spunti necessari per accedere ad un’esplorazione del movimento, personale e collettiva.

Indagheremo l’Accademia come luogo di attraversamento e riverbero, come occasione per il corpo di organizzarsi nello spostamento, sperimentando appoggi concreti, organici e mai uguali. L’elemento sonoro e la musica avranno un ruolo rilevante nell’esplorazione.

L’intento è sbarazzarsi degli automatismi fisici ed emotivi; allenare il corpo affinché sia pronto a spostarsi dalle fisicità più energiche ed intense a quelle più delicate; perché sia mobile e in abbandono verso ciò che non conosce e libero di aderire ad una propria modalità di muoversi.

Si vuole favorire una costante reciprocità tra dimensione individuale e collettiva, tra le percezioni più intime e la concordanza con corpi diversi; si va a riconoscere l’allenamento e la cura del corpo come momento necessario per lasciare che gli spazi dell’Accademia siano abitati da visioni sempre vive e in trasformazione.

“Long-lasting landscapes – itinerari coreografici urbani” parte dalla relazione tra persone e luoghi e si propone di diffondere la danza contemporanea in luoghi non convenzionali per stimolare una riflessione sul territorio e sulle sue risorse. Il percorso è strutturato in molteplici tappe in cui si alternano creazioni artistiche di natura performativa a momenti partecipativi dove il pubblico diventa visitatore, spettatore e protagonista.

“A great show about parents’ faults and mistakes” Der Spiegel


2018 marks the start of a collaboration between ZONA K and Teatro Franco Parenti which, in an unusual and constructive way, present some shows together. An OFF reality and a historic theatre on the Milanese scene thus make explicit a convergence of artistic and thematic interests on some international avant-garde companies.

The performers are on stage with their respective mothers in an unusual version of Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. The performance focuses on the sacrifice of women in today’s family and society.

Since 1993, the Berlin-based women’s collective She She Pop have been exploring the social boundaries of communication in shows where they combine humour and intransigence on the one hand and spontaneity and sincerity on the other. After inviting their fathers in 2010 to participate in the performance Testament, they continued their investigation by adapting Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, together with their real mothers. The result is a lucid and irreverent analysis of the contradictory relationships between generations, a sort of manifesto on the role of women, prisoners of the conflict between private life and career.



The performance focuses on the theme of women’s sacrifice in the family and society. Stravinsky’s religious dimension of the ritual of human sacrifice is replaced by the moral question of self-sacrifice in the relationship between women and men and between mothers and daughters. Put in these terms, the topic immediately generates reluctance: sacrificing oneself as a woman for others seems an obsolete issue today. The enormous importance of self-determination and personal freedom that drives our society has obscured the sense of devotion and sacrifice.

The ancient pagan ritual that inspired Stravinsky, on the other hand, is based on the certainty that every community requires sacrifice, and indeed is founded and affirmed precisely through collective sacrifice. As in Stravinsky’s original play, the performance stages a ritual: the meeting between the She She Pops, their mothers and the audience. However, unlike the community gathered by Stravinsky to celebrate the sacrifice of spring, there is no agreement between the She She Pops and their mothers as to how it should be performed. Doubts arise from the very beginning. However, at the same time, the decision to try, together, is firm. “Who were we? Who are we? Why have we become like this?”

She She Pop is a collective founded at the end of 1990 by a group of graduates of the “Applied Theater Studies program” in Gießen. The members are Sebastian Bark, Johanna Freiburg, Fanni Halmburger, Lisa Lucassen, Mieke Matzke, Ilia Papatheodorou and Berit Stumpf. The executive production is by Elke Weber. The performers, mostly women, see themselves as authors, playwrights and makers of their own stage art. The reference to their own biographies is primarily a method – and not an aim – of their work: the biographical material is condensed into a recognisable artistic strategy and stylised positions. The result is a form of theatre strongly linked to experimentation. The theatre is transformed into a space dedicated to utopian communication. She She Pop considers it its task to trace the social limits of communication – and to go beyond the protective theatrical space, in both specific and artistic terms. Since 1998 She She Pop has been based in Berlin. The theatre HAU Hebbel am Ufer has been co-producer and partner since 2003. Other partners, in Germany and abroad, are: Munich Kammerspiele, Schauspiel Stuttgart, Kampnagel Hamburg, Forum Freies Theater Dusseldorf, Mousonturm Frankfurt / Main and Kaserne Basel, brut Wien, Theatre de la Ville / Festival d’Automne de Paris, Festival Kyoto Experiment Archa Theatre Prague, Prague German language Festival and the Konfrontationen Festival Lublin. The group is currently on tour with the following shows: the preview of Oratorio, which will premiere in February 2018 in Berlin, The Ocean is closed (2017), which premiered in October in Berlin and has just been presented at Romaeuropa Festival, Besessen (2016), 50 Grades of Shame (2016), Some of us (2014), Ende (2014), Schubladen (2012). Among the most successful shows, we must remember the extraordinary Testament (2010) which saw the performers on stage with their fathers.

Un cavallo annuncia la diciannovesima edizione di Danae Festival. Un’immagine che rimanda, a prima vista, a una figurazione classica, se non fosse per quel taglio che sdoppia l’animale, portandoci a guardarlo ad un altro livello. Una figura che rispecchia bene il Festival, per quel suo tenere in considerazione il passato, per poterlo superare e rielaborare, restituendo nuove visioni. Una figura potente, difficilmente domabile, in qualche modo guerresca, ma soprattutto che ha tra le sue peculiarità quella di un’ampiezza del campo visivo che sfiora i trecentosessanta gradi. Ci dice di battaglie, della determinazione, di un senso di libertà e di uno sguardo aperto, senza pregiudizi, capace di accogliere diverse esperienze, senza chiudersi in nessun filone o definizione possibile, cercando di dialogare con un pubblico sempre più ampio e differenziato.

Le battaglie sono le nostre e anche quelle degli artisti che presentiamo. Un paesaggio variegato, costituito da diverse generazioni a confronto, che ci offre anche la possibilità di una riflessione su quanto è accaduto nella scena negli ultimi decenni e sulle modalità di passaggio del testimone. Nomi di fama internazionale affiancati da giovani realtà disegnano uno scenario fatto di visioni radicali, di inquietudini, di ricerca di identità, che ci parlano di un presente che ha smarrito il senso dell’umano, in cui le persone pare abbiano perso la volontà e la capacità di lottare, di rivoltarsi contro quella che di fatto è una guerra perenne contro l’umanità. In questo scenario l’artista è più che mai voce fondamentale e necessaria per mettere a fuoco e svelare le contraddizioni e i pericoli che attanagliano il mondo, ma soprattutto per suggerire una libertà nell’operare e nel vivere che è ancora qualcosa di “scabroso”.  Non dà soluzioni, ma ci pone dinanzi a delle questioni e a delle domande che ci interrogano e che hanno la forza di metterci scomodi nelle nostre illusorie certezze.

Danae Festival è un progetto curato da Alessandra De Santis e Attilio Nicoli Cristiani, del Teatro delle Moire, interessati a rendere visibili esperienze artistiche nuove della scena contemporanea


Gob Squad (DE/UK)

Seven film sequences are reinterpreted and remade by seven performers in seven different locations in Berlin. The original and its copy are shown simultaneously on two screens, one a distorted mirror of the other, as in the game “find the differences”. The escalators of the central station are the mountains of the Far West, the fairground is the field of a historic battle, Pfennigland – a ‘Everything for a Euro’ type shop – is the interior of the spaceship Enterprise.

These are death scenes of great characters from cult films. Contemporary society no longer dwells on death. It announces it, shows it, but passes over it, there is no time to reflect, no time to assimilate, no time to pause. This installation works on that pause, on that missing time, and puts the spectator at the centre of this relationship-reaction.

Corso di teatro TAM TAM

Sorry, this entry is only available in Italian.

TAM TAM è il corso dove il teatro incontra la musica, l’arte e il movimento per giocare insieme e scoprire tante possibilità espressive.

Il percorso teatrale – con l’interazione di diverse discipline artistiche – mira a stimolare la fantasia a partire dall’osservazione del quotidiano, a conoscere codici e significati, a sperimentare attraverso l’improvvisazione guidata e a formalizzare il lavoro per una restituzione davanti a un pubblico di genitori e amici, strutturando le attività e le proposte in base all’età dei bambini.

Quest’anno la cornice narrativa sarà un viaggio fuori dall’ordinario attraverso pianeti e stelle… fino ad arrivare alla luna! FLY ME TO THE MOON è un viaggio spaziale attraverso il teatro da costruire insieme ai bambini… perché ogni viaggio diventi unico.

6 – 7 anni lunedì TEATRO, ARTE E MOVIMENTO
Che succede su Marte? E come sarà fatto Plutone? Immaginiamo i pianeti e attraverso suggestioni visive, racconti e suoni costruiamo storie possibili e impossibili fatte di parole, movimento, ritmo e immagini.

8 – 10 anni mercoledì TEATRO, MOVIMENTO e RAP
Un viaggio in un universo possibile (e impossibile) in cui le storie e i movimenti si fondono con la musica rap: inventiamo canzoni, azioni e parole e andiamo alla scoperta di quello che possiamo fare con il teatro e con l’immaginazione.

Corso di teatro e video

Sorry, this entry is only available in Italian.

Parole, azioni, idee, immagini: si va in scena con il corso di teatro e video TEEN IN ACTION!

Il percorso artistico è organizzato in due moduli. Il filo conduttore di entrambi è il tema dell’identità, un gioco di ruolo attraverso il linguaggio della scena e il video, per scoprire le diverse possibilità di espressione che questi strumenti possono offrire.


U PERFORM! Modulo #1 di 14 incontri per esplorare il linguaggio teatrale
In quanti modi puoi raccontarti e raccontare? Con quali personaggi, oggetti, immagini, azioni, parole?

U PERFORM! ti permetterà di esplorare i linguaggi della scena. Dalla scrittura al corpo, dalla parola alla voce, dalla luce alle immagini. Lavoreremo sul tema dell’identità e costruiremo insieme una performance dal vivo utilizzando tutti gli strumenti che abbiamo a disposizione, tra realtà e immaginazione.

Il modulo prevede: improvvisazioni teatrali, improvvisazioni di scrittura, elementi di messa in scena, utilizzo di strumenti audio e video, costruzione e rappresentazione di una performance dal vivo come restituzione finale.

 U SHOOT! Modulo #2 di 15 incontri per esplorare il linguaggio video
Chi sono? In che cosa mi identifico? Che cosa ho in comune con gli altri e in che cosa mi sento diverso? Cosa mi piace, cosa non sopporto?
Scrittura, interpretazione, regia, montaggio, questo è U SHOOT!: ognuno di questi linguaggi è un modo diverso per raccontare e raccontarsi. Tra realtà e finzione sarete sia attori sia autori: pronti a realizzare il vostro cortometraggio?

Il modulo prevede: elementi di sceneggiatura, esercizi di scrittura cinematografica, recitazione, esercizi di montaggio video, realizzazione di un cortometraggio.


Le lezioni di 90 minuti si svolgono il martedì dalle ore 18.30 alle ore 20.00.
settembre 2021 – gennaio 2022 MODULO 1  = 13 lezioni + prova
febbraio – maggio 2022 MODULO 2 = 14 lezioni + prova
Costo MODULO € 250,00 cad.

Sconto del 15% per iscrizioni entro il 15/09/21 e per secondogeniti
Sconto del 10% per iscrizioni in unica soluzione ad entrambi i moduli
Gli sconti non sono cumulabili

  • Ogni modulo si attiva al raggiungimento del numero minimo dei partecipanti.
  • Gli iscritti al MODULO 1 dovranno confermare la partecipazione al MODULO 2 entro Natale 2021. Qualora rimanessero posti disponibili sarà possibile inserire nuovi partecipanti anche per permettere al laboratorio di proseguire.

Lezione di prova gratuita 28 settembre o 5 ottobre solo su prenotazione obbligatoria: – 02.97378443

Per effettuare l’iscrizione, compila il modulo online QUI

Verrà data priorità a chi seguirà entrambi i percorsi e in seguito – se dovessero esserci ancora posti disponibili- il secondo modulo potrà accogliere nuovi iscritti.
E’ possibile comunque partecipare soltanto al modulo 2 qualora ci siano ancora posti disponibili e in caso di rinuncia da parte di qualcuno del partecipanti al modulo 1. E’ prevista una lezione di prova per entrambi i moduli.
In caso di sospensione delle lezioni in presenza il modulo sarà completato con incontri online della stessa durata: i corsi sono stati pensati e strutturati prevedendo questa possibilità. Le eventuali lezioni online saranno al massino 3 per ogni modulo, quindi 6 in totale. Se la sospensione dovuta all’emergenza sanitaria dovesse perdurare, non verranno attivate ulteriori lezioni in modalità online. Le lezioni annullate verranno quindi recuperate in presenza e-se questo non fosse possibile per motivi legati all’Associazione- rimborsate. Non è previsto alcun rimborso per assenze o per mancata partecipazione alle lezioni online previste.
Il laboratorio è organizzato in modo da rendere felice e piacevole l’esperienza a tutte le bambine e tutti i bambini, garantendo la distanza fisica richiesta di 2mt tra i partecipanti o, laddove fosse necessaria, verrà richiesto l’uso della mascherina nel rispondere alle normative nazionali in relazione all’attuale emergenza sanitaria (DPCM del 17/05/2020 e del 11/06/2020 e Ordinanze della Regione Lombardia n. 547 del 17/05/2020 e n. 566 del 12/06/2020 e successive)

Rimini Protokoll (DE/CH)

Quanta Europa c’è nei nostri ragazzi? Che idea di Europa abbiamo trasmesso? Pensano solo a confini geografi ci o immaginano palazzi di vetro pieni di politici?

Una grande mappa europea su un tavolo, un dispositivo elettronico e 15 partecipanti sono gli ingredienti per iniziare a giocare. Attraverso domande, giochi di ruolo, decisioni da prendere arriveremo a definire quanto ci sentiamo europei. Una performance/gioco che si svolge sempre in una casa diversa.

Gli elementi e le immagini raccolti durante le visite saranno condivisi, in forma anonima, on line sul sito, andando così a implementare un archivio europeo in costante sviluppo.

c/o Case private della città di Milano (entro la circonvallazione esterna).
Questa data si svolgerà in ZONA BRENTA.

L’indirizzo esatto sarà comunicato via sms il giorno precedente l’inizio dello spettacolo.

NO99 (EE)

In 2010, the Estonian company Theatre NO99 staged a production that brought the whole of Estonian society onto the stage.

NO75 Unified Estonia is the name of a fictitious political movement created by the company that a large part of the audience accepted as a real political force. In an original way it combined theatre, performing arts, politics, media and civil society.

For 44 days – from the first press conference to the founding convention of the fake party (attended by more than 7000 people) – the project was filmed to become a documentary. NO55 Ash and Money is the first film by Theatre NO99. It is a documentary that tells the story of how NO75 Unified Estonia was conceived, through interviews with those who worked behind the scenes but also with many politicians who collaborated and witnessed the process of creating the biggest performance event seen in recent European history. NO75 Unified Estonia encapsulates the fears and hopes, the manipulations and disappointments that underlie politics in our contemporary democracies.



A huge simulation of hyperpopulism to reflect how much excessive populism there is in reality. The documentary shows the variety of emotions and dramatic vicissitudes experienced by the creators of NO75 Unified Estonia.

NO55 Ash and Money has received recognition and acclaim at the numerous film festivals where it has been presented around the world.

Theatre NO99 is a company and theatre based in Tallinn, Estonia. Founded in 2005 under the leadership of Ene-Liis Semper and Tiit Ojasoo. Theatre NO99 has immediately enjoyed international success at various European festivals. Over the years it has been a guest at Wiener Festwochen, Festival d’Avignon, HAU Berlin, KVS Brussels, Münchner Kammerspiele, NET Festival and Golden Mask in Moscow. It has produced works of great variety in form including many international co-productions. Since its foundation it has been expressly stated that Theatre NO99 will only do 99 productions and then it will be dissolved.

Catalan avant-garde on stage

The PLAY-K(ei) Who are we? season closes 2016 with the now customary European appointment, dedicated this year to CATALONIA. A rich and lively cultural panorama, a multiform theatrical scene, with peaks of excellence in very different disciplines, from contemporary circus to urban performance.

An autonomous region with a strong identity, Catalonia is today both an example of the protection of identities and a mirror of the many trends towards independence in Europe. It is therefore a region that represents a stimulus for investigation, leading to the identification of leading groups on the performance scene and a reflection on the political and cultural developments of an increasingly complex and fragile Europe.

Can the protection of identities be a guarantee of artistic freedom? Can the aspiration for local economic and political independence exist within a Europeanist vision?

ZONA K chooses some of the most representative and innovative artists, whose work is able to speak about contemporary reality and the contemporary world.

At the same time, in a parallelism between the actuality of the present and the avant-garde of the past, it investigates the Spanish Civil War on its 80th anniversary, through the eyes of artists who recounted their present.

Campus estivo VIDEO&TEATRO.

Avete mai sentito parlare dell’isola del tesoro?
Si dice che in quest’Isola si nasconda un tesoro prezioso… sì, ma dove?
Proviamo a chiedere agli abitanti della nostra Isola se ne sanno qualcosa…

Armati di telecamere, taccuini e microfoni i bambini e le bambine partiranno all’avventura!

Come veri pirati ed esploratori di oggi andranno alla ricerca di indizi e suggerimenti, pronti a incontrare marinai, pescatori e sirene dell’Isola.

Attraverso il gioco del TEATRO e il linguaggio del VIDEO i bambini e le bambine, in questo campus estivo scopriranno gli strumenti tecnici, espressivi e narrativi per realizzare un cortometraggio che sarà mostrato a tutti gli abitanti del quartiere durante il festival ISOLA KULT a fine settembre.

Posti limitati, l’iscrizione è obbligatoria. Il campus si attiverà al raggiungimento del numero minimo richiesto.

Costo: € 170,00.
Le iscrizioni sono accettate fino a esaurimento posti. 

Per scoprire il dettaglio della settimana di campue estivo e avere maggiori informazioni scrivi a

ZONA K crede nella commistione dei linguaggi creativi, e ne fa un suo punto di forza sia nelle attività di laboratorio per le scuole o per le famiglie, sia nelle scelte delle proposte artistiche in stagione.
Il campus vede la collaborazione con Federica Di Rosa e Davide Stecconi.

Danae Festival
il buonumore è un dovere etico

ZONA K si fa tappa di DANAE FESTIVAL quindicesima edizione 

“Provo estasi nel vivere, il semplice fatto di essere viva è gioia bastante” E.D.

Milena Costanzo prosegue con questo lavoro, il suo progetto dedicato a tre donne eccezionali: Anne Sexton, Emily Dickinson e Simone Weil. Come accaduto per la Sexton, anche la Dickinson viene avvicinata per tappe, toccando, in questa fase, la famiglia, il contesto da cui si è potuta sviluppare, in segreto, la ponderosa opera della poetessa americana. Abbiamo tutti assolutamente bisogno di bere il tè, uccidere le mosche e perderci in chiacchiere leziose partecipando, con amore, al sempiterno copione dell’orrida e meravigliosa commedia umana. Tra ispirazioni Bergmaniane e reazioni “british style” si aprono e si chiudono porte su passato e futuro, su ferite e risate alla ricerca di una tensione poetica che appartiene all’inesprimibile. Il percorso su Emily Dickinson ha avuto inizio nel dicembre 2014 con un primo esito pubblico presso la Casa Manzoni di Milano all’interno della rassegna ‘Stanze’.

5 incontri (ore 20.00 – 22.00)
3 spettacoli di giovani compagnie attive nelle arti performative
1 evento finale di restituzione alla città

Questo è il programma del laboratorio teorico pratico di Renzo Francabandera, critico ed esperto di linguaggi della contemporaneità, che si terrà a ZONA K.

Il progetto, che si svolgerà fra metà marzo e maggio  ha lo scopo di coinvolgere chiunque abbia curiosità verso le arti dal vivo nelle sue molteplici forme (teatro, danza, arti visive, musica ecc..) in un percorso  fatto di strumenti per comprendere, e per chi lo voglia sperimentare, i linguaggi della scena contemporanea.

Quindi, problematizzare il pensiero dell’arte come forma di racconto di sé, sollecitare immaginazioni, con riguardo al territorio e alla realtà che vivono, attraverso continui intrecci tra arti visuali, arti performativa e scienze del territorio.

Il percorso si articolerà in 5 incontri di due ore circa su un arco di una decina di settimane circa.

I primi incontri consentiranno l’acquisizione di strumenti di analisi critica attraverso  materiali visivi e multimediali.

Si passerà poi ad elaborare le conoscenze, iniziando il lavoro vero e proprio di segno e creazione.

La visione di tre spettacoli della stagione di PLAY-K(ei) distribuiti in una decina di giorni, permetteranno l’esemplificazione e l’applicazione dell’approccio critico acquisito.
Ogni spettacolo vedrà al termine un momento di confronto tra i partecipanti al laboratorio, il pubblico e gli artisti.

Tutto questo troverà infine esito nell’ultimo incontro, e nella possibilità di un momento pubblico.

Le date:
MARZO 19 – 26
APRILE 9 – 23
MAGGIO 14 – 21

Costo: € 50,00

Per info e iscrizioni chiama o scrivi a

Il costo include i 5 incontri teorici/pratici + l’entrata gratuita agli spettacoli + assicurazione dei partecipanti + tessera associativa annuale di ZONA K

Lezione aperta del Corso Base di Teatro
