LABORATORIO UTOPIA – Artistic Residencies in Maremma

Cinigiano – Teatro Comunale, 12 October > 3 November
Vetulonia – Casa del Popolo, 20 > 25 November
Grosseto – Clarisse Arte, 23 November

Laboratorio Utopia lives in small villages and indicates the possibilities. The common element is the home of artists: to finalise new shows, to do research, to meet the audience in new ways.
In Cinigiano three companies create a theatrical season: Chille de la balanza with “Love is the heart of all things” from Majakowskij and Permanent Workshops with “The chairs” by Ionesco, our partners in the network RAT-Residenze Artistiche Toscane, and the young international group Teatro Umano of Perugia that perfects “Bar Moments”, masquerade theatre play.
In Vetulonia beats the most experimental heart of the residences. In the center is the utopia of Kolektiv38: 8 young filmmakers and directors who imagine the directing as collective fact. “Protocollo Vetulonia” – a further step in their research – will be illustrated in two show-conferences at Clarisse Arte and in Vetulonia. Then the actor and director Francesco Chiantese with his research on the icon painter Andrej Rublev, immortalized by Tarkovskij's movie; the visual artist Aischa Gianna Müller, who continues her research at the boundaries between art installation and performance with “All that glitters is not all gold”, and Giovanni Gaggia presenting “Inventarium”, book-catalogue of the artist on the memory of Ustica massacre.
