OUR GOALS

1.

Study the anthropological basis of forms of communication such as theatrical, verbal, non-verbal, and of corporeal languages with respect to the specific historical, environmental, and cultural characteristics of regional, national and European geographical areas. Rediscover the corporal languages of communication both in terms of cultural behaviour tied to traditions and in terms of the extreme technical and artistic formalization of various expressive forms.

2.

Review and redesign the language of the body and of visual and musical theatre with respect to the revolutionary impact of modern mass media on the new systems of relationships between people: time and distance are reduced or eliminated; distant worlds are brought together in real time; the use of technological devices and filters (information technology and telematics); relationship and form between real reality and virtual reality. Communication systems will be explored and studied through the senses of ancient civilizations and cultures with respect to the growing remote communication.

3.

Acquire a set of theoretical and scientific skills from experiencing interferences between corporeal language and non-verbal communication, gesture and psychology of writing, formalized artistic languages in the fields of music, musical theatre, mime, dance, theatre, record and audiovisual productions, and in developing the scenic space and costumes as elements of dynamic and spatial dialogue between nature and artifice.
