Stories at Home. The theatre in the classroom


School and teachers, often, are the only ones that give children and young people the opportunity to live and share the experience of theatre.
Right from this consideration, we came up with the desire to dedicate a special initiative to schools: Stories at Home. The theatre in the classroom.
The initiative leads directly to school the magic and excitement of the theater without having to exit and travel and offers, slowly, the shows for kids that we run.
Those we "bring home" are, then, shows born for the stage, some on tour right now, others already successfully represented at the theatre and now redesigned for spaces and needs of schools where professional actors (with experience in theater for children and theater training), props, costumes, musics, lights ...
All performances last an hour and offer a moment of final sharing which leaves the word and the action to the students, involved in group activities declined by age.

On stage there are Jacob and Wilhelm that, now fifty, take refuge in an imaginary House of Childhood where they begin to play with their tales. The actors play with the scene like the Grimm played with blank page: from a mirror you unleash Snow White, who narrating herself in a live re-enactment; from the fear of the forest arises Little Red Riding Hood, concentrated in the dialogue "little girl – wolf"; finally Cinderella and her dance in the ashes, symbol of the end but also the element from which she rises, bright, the shoe of the happy destiny.

THE SECRET OF SHAHRAZÀD free adaptation from The Thousand and One Nights
For 1st grade primary and secondary school
Actor's theatre with music on stage. With Sara Donzelli and Fabrizio Bai. Text and direction by Giorgio Zorcù.

The Thousand and One Nights collect centuries of stories of men and women from India to Persia to Egypt. The show starts from the betrayal of love undergone by King Shahriyàr and from the magic of Shahrazàd that manages to cure the King with his presence and his stories during thousand and one night. Of all the stories, the choice fell on three: I waited a thousand years, with the cunning of a mere man and the stupidity of a powerful demon; Sea Jullanàr, with a journey into the depths of the sea and in fairy cities; The Ebony Horse, with the fantastic flight riding a toy horse. The actress brings the students from a story into another, from the adventure of Shahrazàd to those of the characters of whom she tells, and immerses us in a fantastic maze, just as happens in dreams.
